I’m going to tell you a little secret. When I saw that this month’s Simple Bites theme was organization and productivity in the kitchen I kind of cringed a little. Because I’m so not feeling organized in my kitchen or productive right now.
I procrastinated and procrastinated submitting my post topic until Aimee and I had a conversation that went something like this:
Aimee: Just a quick reminder…I kinda need a topic from you for your next SB post!
Katie: I’m sorry! I have been trying to think of something….I’ll let you know tomorrow. I am just not feeling very organized or productive in the kitchen at the moment.
Aimee: So write about it. No, for real. How are you coping? Pushing through?
Katie: More like feeling sorry for myself.
Aimee: Hey we’ve all been there. And I think this end-of-winter, cusp of spring really triggers it.
[lightbulb moment happens and I think “oh. duh.”]
The last couple of weeks I’ve been feeling like I’ve totally lost my groove in the kitchen. But instead of doing something about it I’ve been doing nothing.
It’s been a busy month. We had spring break and that was….fun. Or not. My kids don’t quite appreciate being off from school for a week yet. Eric was out of town for work. Then really sick two weekends in a row.
Ever since then things have been a little off here. The weather is nasty. Crazy windy. Bad allergies which make me feel like I’m half asleep all day long. A couple of failed recipes. Yes, failed recipes and that never does much for self confidence.
Instead of doing nothing, I should be following my own advice.
