do you ever deal with this?  Sometimes i just don't want to take the extra steps to cook dinner from scratch, or to go deal with the garden or the chickens.   I don't feel like dealing with the prep and clean up of making some chicken stock, or refried beans. I don't feel like canning. I don't feel like buying in bulk and having to repackage to store or freeze....

LOL  Of course I feel that way at times.  If I can put off the task then I will, but otherwise I just plug through it for my family's sake and then enjoy the satisfaction of a job that's done.  I've also found several ways to cut down on the amount of work involved.

I've been trying to keep my motivation this week since my dad died Saturday.  So far it's been helping.

Feel like it all he time.  But it's worth it.  The money I save by doing all that stuff goes towards the things I really want...

do what I do when I start feeling down...make a coffee, park your butt on the couch and just take 15 minutes to enjoy.  Then get back up and back to it.

Yes, I've lost all motivation to keep up on the house.  Thankfully my husband and mom have been stepping in and I'm having my baby tomorrow.  I've had really bad pelvic girdle pain that over the last two weeks has been unbearable.  I do the BARE minimum every day and feel so guilty about it, but I don't have the motivation or the energy to do more. :(

sounds like you have a pretty good reason to not get anything done! don't feel guilty about it at all!

Feel like it right now. Dealing with a baby is extremely time consuming and tiring. I forgot how much since my baby is almost 7.
