Motivation in a Can

As I sit at work and work on various projects I make mental to do lists for when I get home and on occasion I write the list down.  I look at it and think "Oh yeah I am totally going get home bust a move and feel good about life!" I may be low on energy, but the motivation is there.  On my drive home I get so excited about being home and starting dinner, doing laundry, organize pictures on my computer, delete old files that have been on there FOREVER......whatever else I need to get done.  BUT as soon as I unlock my front door and walking it feels like the motivation stops at the thresh hold of my home and no matter how hard I beg, pull, plead, bribe....motivation just stands there and shakes his head and giggles.  GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!

So I was thinking about how to "invite" motivation into my home...and this thought crossed my mind

"They make energy in can.  Why can't they make motivation in a can?


It seems like every other commercial on TV anymore is about some sort of energy drink, but why not motivation.

As I was talking to a friend about this idea and she suggested an energy motivation cocktail and I added a Pepsi flavored energy motivation cocktail!!!  

Well there you have it folks the inter workings of my crazy brain!

In exactly one week from today my baby...well my big girl...Jasmin will be starting Kindergarten.  She is beyond excited, however, I am an absolute nervous, anxiety ridden mother.

I lay awake at night thinking things like

What if she picked on by other kids?  What if she is the one picking on other kids?  What would happen if the school is put on lock down?  Will she adjust well to the school and routine?  Will she be bored and not like school?  Will she be the one in class that just does not get it?

I think you get the idea.  But my baby is going to school......HOLY COW!!! I just brought her home from the hospital 6 weeks ago and here she is trying to read, starting to write, is absorbing everything at the drop of the hat and is ready for school.  But boy oh boy I am not ready for her to start school.

This is my baby that is starting Kindergarten....ARE YOU JOKING ME??
When I look at her this is what I still see!!!

But this is reality. She is ready for school for sure!!! I love this little stinker!!

So as I lay awake at night being a paranoid mom.  I think I should homeschool her and keep her here with me all day where it is safe and I can keep and eye on her at all times.  But when I actually watch her I know deep down that she is one of those kids that needs to be with others her own age.  She is a smart cookie that will benefit greatly from school.  

I am excited for her and it makes me extremely happy to know that she is ready for school and is very excited about her new school and making new friends!!!

Payeton is struggling with the fact that Jasmin gets to start school and she does not.  She keeps telling me that she is 5 and is ready.  I just keeping telling her that in the mornings it will be just the 2 of us and we will have a lot of fun.

Tonight was the schools open house and Jasmin was bouncing off the walls looking at her new classroom.  But when we walked in the teacher automatically looked at Payeton and said welcome.  I said nope not that one this one and introduced her to Jasmin.  The teacher looked really confused thinking Jasmin was in first and Payeton was in Kindergarten.  My girls are so tall that I get that all the time.

I love my girls to death!!!
