Could I be any more uninspiring?

I was all set to write a wonderful and inspiring blog last night.  I still will, when I find the time to write it.  The problem was, the internet decided to die in the middle of my exercise session (I ride my stationary bike and watch online TV)(yes, I am slowly but surely becoming an exerciser) and I couldn't get it back up to save my life.

So, no inspiring blog post for me.  Or you, for that matter.

But I have certainly been productive these last couple days!  My bathroom is painted and decorated.  Folks, it looks AMAZING.  But you'll have to wait until I show you my kitchen to see it.  That's first.  Because I finally got new curtains in there.

Yesterday the kids were off school because of teacher inservice.  Turned out to be yet another blessing in disguise, because this meant Sophia had playmates home and didn't need to be my shadow all day as she normally is.  Which is fine, but it makes painting a little difficult.  So, yesterday morning I finished painting the bathroom and putting it all together.  I cleaned the house.  I taught two voice lessons.  I practiced.  I made my children practice (they fought over who got to practice first...now that is an argument I love to hear!).  I cleaned some more.  I took Sophia to her Music class.  I dropped Bria off at her orchestra rehearsal.  I came home and did dishes and then hosted scrapbooking night at my house.  Three other ladies came and I got two more pages done.  That makes six for the year of 2009, all done in the last two weeks. Be excited. I caught up on e-mails. I exercised.   And I almost blogged.

Joel and I are out the door now for our Thursday morning date.  We are going to plan our YM/YW activity.  Did I tell you?  He got called as Young Men's President.  There's a good story to be told about that, but again it will have to wait for another day.  Suffice it to say, he loves it.  We love it.  We are a team. 

Perhaps when I come home I will write the blog that is kicking around in my mind.  For now, be uninspired.

Toodles!

  3. I agree... your uninspiring blog posts are pretty darn inspiring! If I ever felt like getting up and getting going, I certainly do now!

    I've been productive too as of late. It's because I spent so much time being unproductive in the past three months, now that I feel good, my list of stuff to do is a mile long!

  9. I'd say it's more inspiring---to read about everything you're accomplishing right now. Good for you! I'm jealous about the scrapbooking pages. I loathe scrapbooking and haven't done it since I graduated high school...

  10. Are you both YM/YW presidents? How fun is that! I got called as Primary Pres right before my trip to England, then right afterwards was the Primary program, not to mention 101 other hills to climb. But it's been humbling, and the children are teaching me alot. Tons, in fact.

    PS: Enjoy your morning date! I told my husband about them & as he works a night shift from home, we're plotting some afternoon dates ourselves (before the kids come home from school).

  16. I have had inspirational blog posts kicking around in my mind for months now, I just rarely have the time to sit and work them out onto paper anymore. It's just so much easier to keep a running commentary of whst I've been "doing". Sigh. Life gets busier and busier!

  20. I think your posts are always inspiring! And I remember those days when I had to strategically plan every minute I needed to finish a project. The minutes were usually between midnight and 2 a.m.

  22. I'm Inspired! Will you send some of your energy my way? That's terrific Joel got called to be YM president. That will be a riot working together for the strength of the youth in your ward. Fabulous! Can't wait to see your bathroom and kitchen pictures.
