  • Hmmmm....good question! My son is my biggest motivation, but also (this may seem silly) I LOVE coffee, so thinking about getting to have my coffee and relax while watching the news is what gets me going. I really enjoy having that time to relax and have some time to do something that I want, because I know the rest of the day will be about him!!

  • I sometimes have issues with this, but i guess everyone has their bad days. Of course my son motivates me and definitely keeps me moving. lol. But i also always try to look at it as today is a new day and there may be no tomorrow so i try to make the best of everyday and enjoy my loving family. I am going to start working again soon tho and that doesn't really excite me too much, lol, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

  • Usually it's just work! If I dont have to work then it's about "stuff" that needs done around the house (ie- more work!) yay me! lol
    BTW- I love my coffee too! That helps make mornings more bearable! :p

  • To be honest, if it wasn't for our kiddos, I'd be sleeping in EVERY morning. lol. I have horrible insomnia and am up til 2-3am most days, and then get up between 630 and 7 with them, and it's hard to get going. But knowing they need me to take care of me keeps me going. :)
