Motivation ... Where's Mine ??

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was quiet, again, and went nice and slowly. I did a bit of housework, read a bit, cooked a bit, played on the computer a bit !! Nothing much, really !! It was wonderfully relaxing, though.

Today is a cold, wet Monday morning. I am trying to get myself moving and get into doing the multitude of things I have on my list for this week ... at this stage, I have done none of them !!

My challenge for today is to "GET MOTIVATED".

What's your challenge for today ??

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Take care,

I was answering replies to my posts and found yours -replying from a replyer! ;) Anyway, although I'm a dog-lover rather than a cat-lover (sorry!) I still love your site- it's very cool.
I'm a homeschool mom of two girls and live in Oregon.
And it was strange for me to see that your post was dated Monday and hoping our weekend was good, while I type away on Sunday, with the sun still shining!
A good challenge...motivation! I am currently enjoying some time to myself and my challenge is to enjoy it as much as possible, since it is very rare! :)
Stop by anytime...

Hi Tammy, and welcome to the world of Meow !!
I dropped over to your blog earlier, wow, you are going to have some alone-time whilst the family go camping. Interesting. Hope you make the most of this time, and know that you will be extra happy when the family return.
Take care, Meow

Hi Meow, Happy Monday! My challenge for tomorrow will the same - to be motivated at work to get things done. On a personal note I need to get motivated to WALK even in the heatwave we are having :)

My challenge for tomorrow (Monday) will be to get my cell phone replaced. I got to Yogi Bear Campground this afternoon & found that I can't hear anyone nor can they hear me on my cell phone! I talked with Verizon, the provider, & it all looks good from their end. I hear incoming calls ring, it gives me their name or number, but I don't hear them nor do they hear me. I found I can get a new phone but will have to sign another two year contract but plan to stay with them anyway. I hope to be back up by early afternoon.

I have been spinning my wheels for quite some time now. I feel I have no direction. My hubby helped me get started cleaning our bedroom and changing things around. Hopefully I will not lose that spirit and I ca get a few more things done by myself this week.

Take care,

Barbara ... what's with motivation ... it is so hard to get to, isn't it !?!? I got slightly motivated today, but not for everything on my list. Oh well, tomorrow, hopefully.

Dick ... golly, bad luck about the phone. What a bummer. Hope you get mobile (phone-wise) again soon !!

Connie ... I think with what you've been through lately, you can be excused for lacking motivation at the moment. I hope things are going OK. You'll get there. Hugs.

Take care, friends ... Meow

Hello, I was blog hopping and came across your site. Nice site, from one cat lover to another. I was up way too late last night on my computer, my goal today is to get through work!

Viamarie said...

My challenge for today and the rest of the days this week is: To "Live" in the "now". I will not concern myself with tomorrow or yesterday. For it is in being part of the present that I can appreciate the gift of serenity.

Happy Monday!

Motivated is good! I have laundry to finish, litter boxes to clean, ferret cage to clean, a small quilt to finish, packing for the next trip to start, need to do my walk and plan dinner (then cook it!). So my day is full. I have already done my morning devotional, drank a pot of coffee, done some posting and blogging, entered my picks for the Blog awards and now I am off to get started.

Too much info? Hope you are having a wonderful Monday and you have found your motivation!

Peter said...

Just to finish the day off, my email has gone missing on me Thanks for your help, email following I hope.

Badoozie said...

my challenge is to make it through the day without hitting anyone

Tab said...

LOL My challenge would be the same as yours..get motivated!
I just need to get my ass away from the computer and I am sure I could get a hell of alot more done!
Just don't think it would be safe to try and blog while mowing the front
Here's wishing you a productive day!

Raggedy said...

Have a wonderful day!

SAME THING. I'm turning 40 this week (as you'll read in my post today). argh! BTW, spoke w/ FTS on the phone today and told him to send you a postcard from Colorado!

Sonia said...

Hi Meow! My challenge for this week is will the same, to be motivated to get many things done ... and stop procrastinating! Lol!

All of the USA except for the Northwest is having a major heat wave. I think most people spent the weekend indoors with the AC on. I did just a bit of work outside and nearly had heatstroke. Our doggie drank tons of water, poor old thing.
Motivation comes best for me when I start the day off with some exercise. I'm not motivated nearly as often as I should be. :) :) :)


I didn't have any challenge for the weekend. I just enjoyed myself this weekend by going out with my hubby, son, grandson and my sister-in-law who just left Monday. We went around shopping and ate out.
You have a good challenge. The best I should say.

DayByDay4-2Day said...

Stay cool! That's my challenge. Seems all of the middle of the US has been hit wigh abnormally high tempts.
I try to be motivated, but the heat is dragging me down. I did go outside this evening amd play with my camera.

Meow said...

Marti ... Hi and thanks for visiting.

Viamarie ... I agree .. yesterday's been, nothing we can do about it now; tomorrow's out of our control (to a point); but today and now is a gift, that's why it's called the present !!

Reverberate ... golly, you have a busy day ahead ... hope you have more motivation than I had !!

Weird, I replied to the above 3 posts last night ... where'd they go ?? Blogger up to it's tricks again !!

Peter ... hope the email is up and running again !!

Susie ... haha, that would be a good one to keep.

Tab ... does your computer keep calling you back to sit down and play, too ... mine is always taunting me !!

Raggedy ... lists are good, naps are better !!!

Saur ... happy birthday. Thanks for mentioning me to FTS ... I will get in touch with him.

Sonia ... hope you get through your challenge !!

Bossy Britches ... baby steps are good !! Save the "killing" for the new job !!

Jamie ... it is so terribly hard to be motivated when it is sooooo hot. I say, just lie around with the AC on, and relax ... plenty of time tomorrow (or the day after, or the day after that !!) for motivation !!

Fridays Child ... sounds like the perfect weekend. Glad you had fun.

Daybyday ... same comment as for Jamie (see above !!). Playing with the camera is fun, though !!

Thanks everyone, I guess we all have the same (and different) challenges to face daily.

Have a great week.

Take care, Meow
