Seriously - this is why so little gets done around here...

My Thursday morning...

7:00am - Alarm goes off.
7:09am - Snooze.
7:18am - Snooze.
7:27am - Snooze.
7:36am - Finally get up.
7:37am - Watch a little Today Show.
7:52am - Turn it off when Ann Curry is allowed to speak.
8:00am - Remember that I wanted to make a card for the Poppy Seed Challenge.
8:02am - Rummage through already-made cards and see if anything can be used as a starting point.
8:10am - Realize I'm woefully short on birthday cards.
8:11am - Peruse stamps to see what birthday stamps I have.
8:15am - Remember original purpose for being in the craft room before 9am in my pajamas.
8:16am - Refocus.
8:17am - Work on Poppy Seed card.
8:38am - Set up area to take photograph of card.
8:39am - Search through the house for NavyGuy's good camera.
8:42am - Realize he probably has it in his car, or has just hidden it from me because I tend to forget to put the memory card back in it, and then when he wants to use the camera, he has to retrieve the memory card from my laptop...
8:43am - Finally take a photo of my card using my camera
8:45am - Upload card to computer.
8:46am - Futz with lighting in the photo.
8:50am - Decide that in the photograph, the yellow on my card looks orange, and therefore, I have to make a new card so there's no doubt I have yellow on my card.
9:15am - Finally finish making second card for the challenge.
9:16am - Do another hunt for the good camera just in case I missed it during my first sweep of the house.
9:20am - Admit camera defeat.
9:21am - Reconfigure set-up for photograph so there's no lighting issues this go-round.
9:23am - Upload card to computer.
9:26am - Edit photo and decide lighting is satsifactory.
9:27am - Write blog post for photo.
9:36am - Debate whether blog post makes me sound like a crazy person.
9:38am - Realize that's a moot point.
9:40am - Publish blog post.

There you have it. Almost three hours. And that was a three hours that actually produced some sort of tangible results!

And let's just add to the very beginning of this timeline:
0627 - NavyGuy leave the house and is already at work proctoring an exam by the time NavyWife is out of bed.

Oh Maverick.....pity party for one! back table!

If we want to make this very fair....

4:45 AM: Historygirlie is up with a two year old wanting to watch the Wiggles, even though HG hasn't slept much that night because #2 decided to hold a 1 infant dance party in utero. And somehow kick the pinched nerve in said Mumma's back. Wiggles party in Mumma's bed commences once Farmer hauls out of bed at 5;05 AM because he just gives up on sleep because Kitty decides that she also wants to play Mountain Goat on her sleeping daddy.

And so the day begins in FarmTown....

:) Just kidding Maverick.

Ahhh, Mugs, I miss those days of pandering around in jammies, without someone following around asking for Elmo and waffles and milk. :) enjoy it while you can!
