Nevermind that I am putting this up on Thursday. I did manage to get the Craft Edition of WoIW up at around 10pm last night!
This is my first week of doing a Home Edition of WoIW. One of the reasons I like to blog, is that it helps to motivate me to get things done. I’ve noticed that over the past four years of constantly being pregnant and nursing, I’ve found it more and more difficult to be productive.
One way to get things going is to lower one’s standards. So, I elect to just work on things. Not get them totally finished. Just get something done over the course of a week. Maybe the motivation will stick and I’ll continue on with the project once the week is over. But if I don’t, that’s ok, because at least I will have done something. Which is more than nothing.
This is scary. Especially now that I’ve put it out there for all to see. This pile is in a corner where it’s easy to ignore. I didn’t realize it had gotten this bad.
Eliza is the third girl and our last child. This means that as she outgrows clothes, I am free to get rid of them. I thought I would be very quick to dispose of unneeded clothing since I’m not one to hang on to things and I’ve long been annoyed with all the STUFF around the house.
But I find it hard to let go of these baby clothes. Especially when all three girls wore most of them. I think that maybe I should some for my granddaughters, and some for a memory quilt, and some in case one of my friends get pregnant with a girl. And then I get annoyed with all the thinking and I do nothing.
But this week!! I will do something! How much? I don’t know. But I will continue to remind myself that something is more than nothing.
