This morning I had to head into the office for a few hours to catch up on work missed out on last week due to Harper being sick and to prep for the next few days ahead. I gave myself a 4 hour deadline – out the door by 7am and home by 11am – and Rob stayed home with the girls. I was amazed at what I managed to get done in 3 hrs at the office. I was at my desk, coffee in hand and ready to go by 7.30am. I just got into the zone and focused and I think without any distractions I got almost a normal full days work done. Then I left at 10.30 as my parking meter ran out, picked up some things for home and was back in the door into the mummy zone again. If only I could muster that focus more. Be a focused Mum and play with the girls for periods of time. Be a focused wife and communicate with Rob and be with him rather than there but on the computer or watching TV. Be focused on getting jobs around the house done – washing/cleaning/cooking/shopping…rather than try to do a little bit of all these things while being completely distracted and procrastinating by using the web.
