I am the Queen of Ideas.
I am more of the
"we are so disorganized. ohmygoooooodness I have the.best.idea"
type of girl.
Why follow through when you could move on to planning the next bigger, better, most glorious project.
I'll tell you who. My husband.
The euphoria I get from planning? My husband gets from finishing a project.
The fresh start.
Researching what we'll need to make this project perfect.
The supplies! Yessss! Buying the supplies that will change. my. life!
My heart beats faster just thinking about how amazing it will be.
The possibilities are endless.
Endless I tell you.
Instant gratification, baby.
Not going my way immediately? Peace, I am out.
I truly have great intentions.
Like last year when I decided I was going to keep the twins clothes organized so it be easier to rotate appropriate sizes in and out of their closet.
That's the best idea!
Where is the computer?
I need to make sure I'm being practical about this.
I need to research to make sure I find the best system.
After all, this is going to make my life so much easier!
We have to go.
Cardboard storage boxes??
I'll take sixty.
Oh my gooooodness they are going to have the most organized closet evvvver.
The majority of these bad boys are still in wrappers. And just for your peace of mind, sixty might have been an exaggeration.
Every month is going to be the month I get myself in check.
This month I am going to be so organized people are going to throw up.
I will be that annoying organized girl.
I should get a planner.
And I will cut coupons.
So I need one of those coupon organizer things.
Marissa! you are a genius! You could save so much money!
You could be like those Extreme Couponing ladies but totally skip the whole hoarder stockpile room.
And a calendar.
Oh my gosh.
You so need a calendar.
We have to get to Target or the world is going to end!
How have I gone so long without a coupon organizer and a calendar!
No wonder our lives are in such disarray!
As you can see it looks like January is kind of a slow month. On paper, that is.
I really did have great intentions in the exercise department.
But how do you jump back into cardio without a new pair of shoes?
Marissa: "do you think $74 is too much to pay for overnight shipping?"
Marissa: "No! We need these shoes, Marissa. How could we possibly take a lap around the block in old shoes?"
Marissa: 'You're right. If we are going to get serious we need shoes now. Like, right now."
They aren't even running shoes.
But, we did make it out for a little cardio.
We walked to my sisters house.
But after that walk I think I decided that wearing Stella for a jog hurts her neck.
She bounced all over the place the whole time.
That reminds me, I so need to order a pilates dvd! Im.med.iate.ly.
And that Physique 57 stuff that Kelly Ripa does.
I could have a body like Kelly in like four months.
I definitely need that dvd, too.
And, you all will be happy to know I talked myself off the cliff and opted for the free shipping.
Oh, and my recipes!
I'm a mom now.
I need to make sure all of my good recipes are written down!
My recipes will be part of my legacy.
I need a recipe organizer asap!
It actually has two recipes in it. Thankyouverymuch.
To clean? Must have new sponges! And another cup of coffee.
I should drink this cup of coffee, let it kick in and scrub this house from top to bottom. It is so ON when these babies go to sleep. And a new flavor of Method spray. The cucumber one is so 2011.
My new face care regime? Can't possibly start without new moisturizer.
Stella's room? How could I possibly put things away without a closet organizer? I mean, it doesn't even make sense, right?
Laundry? I can't wait for tonight! I will drink a glass of wine and fold all thrity six loads. It will be so nice to drink a glass of wine in bed and fold laundry. Yup, I'll wait until tonight.
I will get so many great ideas from Pinterest and my life will become so seamless.
I feel better already.
These are the conversations I have with myself daily. More like hourly.
It's exhausting being me.
So this year?
I resolve to implement a little more follow through.
I will do it.
But, obviously I have to blog about it first.
I'll blog about it and then it will be out there for the world to see.
I guarantee that if I blog about it I will actually follow through.
See? I'm already off to a good start.
