My motivation. Can anyone help me? It seems that I have lost all motivation, particularly when I am at work, and I need to figure out how to re-locate it. I don't know if it is sheer exhaustion, lack of interest, or possibly just laziness. I know it's been crazy at home since the girls went back to school last week, and I have 1 in volleyball and 1 in cross country. Add open houses to the mix and late dinners. And today, my mom flew in for a visit, and I had to drive down to Boston to get her.
I keep looking at the piles on my desk, and I swear, they are growing by the day. Yet, here I sit on JM and keep getting up to get refills of water or to use the bathroom. All I can think about right now is that I'd really like a nap, but I think they may frown on the H/R person napping at her desk, particularly since we've terminated people for sleeping on the job. Do I have things I could/should be doing? Absolutely! Am I doing them? Absolutely not! I think I just need a way to get out of my little rut because I know that I am not being productive. Don't get me wrong - work is still getting done, but it's certainly not my usual level of speediness or ambition.
Anyone else missing their motivation? Maybe I should organize a search party to help me find mine...

I have been hanging out on the couch for the past hour or so trying to figure out how I am going to nap AND keep an eye on my kiddos. Oh and I'm thinking about bringing that load of laundry over there back down to the basement just so I don't have to look at it and feel so bad about NOT folding it
Maybe we can find mine after yours??
Off topic and you don't have to be specific or give details at all but I live in Southern NH so my ears perked about about driving to Boston ; )
Me Too!! I dont want to do anything at home at all. My laundry is backing up and dh has been doing it but then he puts the clean clothes baskets and they wrinkled...ugh sorry thats a different rant, lol
But I agree I have no desire to do anything lol
I think mine is going back and forth to the convention, lol. Most days I'm like ugh I can't seem to get anything done. But then there are days like the other night when all of a sudden at like 11 o'clock I couldn't handle it anymore and went into a 'deep' clean mode on my bedroom, got most of it done and it was starting to look a lot better until all of a sudden at about 11:45 I just lost all motivation and crashed. Probably a good thing since I had to be up at 6:30 the next morning to get DD ready for school and off to grandpa's so I could go to work.
I'm having that issue bad today. I need to mop the kitchen and vacuum the living room, but what am I doing? Sitting here online I also need 5 more hours of work to finish up my week, but I need to get the cleaning out of the way first. Ugh....I just want my DS to take a nap so I can snuggle up with him and pass out!!
