No motiviation

Y'all!  I have no motivation to work at all this month.  But, if I don't work, I don't make no money!  I am so distracted by Christmas and all things Christmas.  I want to just flip through my cooking magazines, continually internet shop, plan what I'm going to cook, and keep checking the weather forecast to see if we will get any snow.  I did not work at all yesterday.  I woke up at 4 a.m. panicked that Christmas is coming and I have done nothing other than get an advent wreath and put up our tree.  So, yesterday I spent the whole day putting together the cookie mix in a jar gifts that give to each of my in-laws (one for each family because it is crazy to try to buy presents for every child), walking all over the one mall we have to try to find presents for my mother in law and my mom, and eventually online shopping to find the perfect gifts for them, and a super awesome deal on the stupid i.pad.2 that my husband wants.  Thank goodness for wal.mart!  They have it cheaper than anywhere I've seen, and that is a good thing because I despise this stupid device that costs the same as a freaking laptop.  Ugh.  (sorry for the rant, but I wanted to get that off my chest.)

Now all I want to do is bake, bake, bake.  A couple of weeks ago, I made the peppermint meringues from the cover of bon.appetit, and they were so cute and yummy.  I want to make those again, and some blondie bars I saw in the same magazine, as well as these awesome triple ginger cookies I saw there too. But, that one calls for crystallized ginger, and I saw a tiny jar of that in the spice aisle for $8!  That's crazy!  I did see large bags of it on am.azon for around the same price, so I need to just order it.  I am kicking myself, though, because I just ordered vitamins on am.azon last night, and teecino just a little while ago, and I wish I had remembered the ginger.  I hate having to make so many separate orders.  

I wish I could just scrap the whole month and not work.  Alas, I have no sugar daddy husband.  So, I better pull it together and do some work!


  1. This post made me hungry!! :) Enjoy all your baking.

  2. Mmm... Cookies... Maybe you can reward yourself with a cookie for every hour of work?? I, personally, would do every 15 min. ... :)

  3. I hear you on the "no motivation" part. I've given work a good eleven months already, so I call December the "burnt out" month. :-)
    I'm so glad you found such great gifts for your mom & MIL. Its so tough to do and I always struggle with it.
    Does your husband (and you) have an iPad1? If not, then you will love using the iPad.2! Its so handy for reading (blogs), games and etc. We have the first version and I hear that #2 is even better! It does stink that its so darn pricey, though. I always hate that initial purchase price.

  4. I want to eat cookies now!

    I made a list of the things that I need to go for Christmas and I felt so much better. I love crossing the things off when I'm done!
