Yesterday was a very busy day but I got a lot accomplished. That frees up some time today to get some house cleaning done. Today was a half day for the bigs and tomorrow is their last day of school and the last thing I want is a bunch of children running around and making it worse.
I have a few emails to read and follow up on and I still have to close out my books for the month but hopefully this evening will allot time for a family movie and some popcorn.
There is always a lot to be done but you have to make some down time for not only yourself but also for your family. This is a lesson I have learned the hard way along this entrepreneur life. Because at the end of the day you are still a wife and mother and those positions you applied for need your attention too.
We got some disheartening news on a project we were working on yesterday it almost left me in a rut, but everything in due time. We have been setting up for this project for awhile now and it didn’t go through. I just had to take a deep breath and say, ‘We just have to try again.’ So back to the drawing board but the great thing about failing at something is you know what NOT to do the next time. It’s like that Aaliyah song, If at first you don’t succeed dust yourself off and try again”. (Yes I am aware it was a great saying far before it was a great song but the song sticks.)
I now know how to better plan for it and seal the cracks so that is solid and consistent. When we get this deal I will share with you what it is but right now I must focus on doing it better the second time around. I am simply excited to do it because now I know what I need to do. Like I say if you’re going to fail, fail well.
On another note there is a bad case of pink eye going around. Two of my children had it and it tried to get me. Yes, I said it TRIED to get me! The secret to stopping any ailment in its tracks is cleanliness. If I even feel a hint of me getting sick or catching one of the many viruses going around my OCD kicks in like Mr. T from the A Team! (Uh oh my age is showing). The reason I cannot always keep my children infection free is I cannot monitor them like I can myself. With this pink eye, they want to rub and touch, and I understand that so its not like I can tape them down to the couch or anything….(pondering). But what I can do is stop the infection dead in its tracks by making them wash their hands repeatedly and disinfection everything at least twice a day with Clorox wipes. At night I make sure to spray everything with Lysol disinfecting spray. (That was a plug Lysol and Clorox. Feel free to mail me my check.) I have antibacterial pumps around (which I need to go buy more). Trust me this method helps tremendously. Its a great habit to have to keep the days nasties away anyhow.
Well that’s all for me for now, go get something done today! Mean what you say and always mean what you do.
