I’ll post this post tomorrow.
Or maybe I’ll finish it and post it tonight. Who knows. Procrastination. It’s there. I’ve always been a procrastinator but it’s reaching epic proportions right now in some aspects of my life. For instance…my house. It’s filthy. My dust bunnies are even embarrassed. In fact, I’m pretty sure I saw some packing up and leaving today, they probably couldn’t take it anymore.
But that’s not it. Look below. When was the last time I blogged? 2009? Every day a blog post comes to mind and every day I tell myself “I’ll do it tomorrow.”
I’ll make dinner tomorrow and we’ll stop eating takeout tomorrow
I’ll sweep the floors tomorrow
I’ll take a shower…tomorrow. Ok, just kidding on that one. I’ve been showering. In fact, for the first time in a long time I’ve managed to take a shower every day! There’s a reason why that is happening though… every day something calls for taking a shower. I’m very busy right now with working 12 hours a week (ha ha ha I know, right?), photo sessions (both shooting and editing), celebrating things… It has kept me busy and clean.
Lets see…in the past 2 weeks since I last posted I’ve had 6 photo sessions, a 3 day camping trip in Door County, WI where I brought my camera and didn’t take a single picture (what?), 2 dinners out, said a final goodbye to a friend, work, be a mom, and try to keep my house clean. I just went to the grocery store for the first time in 3 weeks today. It was glorious. I went alone. But my mind was still elsewhere.
So, I was thinking about hiring a mother’s helper/babysitter to come over every Monday from 8-12 and play with the boys while I clean, edit pictures, run errands, and anything else I need to do but can’t find the time to do.
If you have done this, what is it like? What is the average cost for something like this? I am bringing in extra money from photography and from my workplace job, so I’m thinking it might be worth it. What do you think? Is there another solution?
