I think that the secret to being a true Super Mom must be the coffee...
I have been cleaning more.
I have been writing more.
I've thought of and made new crafts and projects.
I sleep less.
I'm even remembering to eat healthier.
I finally get it. Moms keep offering me coffee and for years I've limited my intake (it's healthier to have less, and cheaper too...) but forget that! I feel better and get more done, and my daughter assures me I'm more fun this way. Just yesterday we made fingerpaint, she painted while I blogged (2 yesterday, and 3 today!) I even scrubbed the bottom of my fridge (I don't know what goes on in there, but it always needs to be scrubbed...) and did my dishes by hand. Today I'm going to start cleaning my house one room at a time, enjoy this amazing fall weather, and scrub the fresh picked carrots for carrot cake.
As my "done it" lists grow, I feel more accomplished, more confident, and much happier. The reduction in clutter in my house allows me to reduce the clutter in my mind and think more clearly, which in turn makes it easier to get more done. And to imagine I had cracked this in high school, when I took my morning cup of coffee with me on the walk there and nursed it through my first two classes. No wonder I've been trying to sort out how I lost so much productivity. If this is my bad habit, and it makes me a better person in every other way, then I will proudly announce to the world that I am a COFFEE ADDICT. Yup. Maybe I'll even start a support group out here. We can meet twice a month and try a new flavor of coffee, or a new creamer...
Perhaps this super mom can now finally get those books posted for sale...and finish the adult ones I started. My goal is to make my family and myself happy, keep us healthy, and finally conquer the house cleaning that seems to multiply each day. If I can do just the first two, I will be a super mom for sure!
