  • I teach exercise and dance, and when I am not teaching, I spend a lot of time preparing for the classes.

  • I would just find something to clean "even though pretty much everything is done." that's about all i really do...I never can figure out what else to do...It gets boring real easy....

  • I'll admit Im not motivated every day. There are some days that I wake up and I say, "Ok, DD! we're going to walk 20 minutes to dunkin donuts right now!" and other days I wake up and say, "Ok, DD. Mama does not feel rested . . . Im going to curl up and read a book while you destroy the house" lol But mostly I make plans for myself the night before. Last night I made arrangements to borrow a car so I could go grocery shopping. And then of course once I get home I need to start cooking, so that's what got me up and at em today. Had I not made those plans last night, I prolly would have just stayed inside today, cause its SO COLD outside!

  • I usually have a list of things to do,
    stain doors,
    house related chores
    clean the house
    wash cars, weather permitting
    take dogs to the groomers,
    teachers meetings, etc etc
    I don't do it all in one day, I spread it out through the week.
    My goal is to have it all done by the time my hubby comes home(he works out of state) so I can give him and the boys all of my attention
