You know when you're like "I'm gonna really start dedicating more time to my side business."
And then your church family asks you to not only teach adults in Sunday School, but also teach singing time to little children kthanksbye 

It's fine. I mean, really. I could have said no. But I didn't because it's fine. Last week was my first week and while I was pretty exhausted by the end of my 3-hour church service marathon (keep babies quiet for an hour! Teach about the New Testament for an hour! Teach singing time for an hour! Energy, energy, YES!), I felt weirdly satisfied. I'm gonna make my procrastination weaknesses into strengths dang it. 

I'm still trying to devote more time into the ol' tote bag biz (PLUG! Follow here, here, and here), and I've discovered that I've turned the elliptical into my home office. 

Every day I dump the girls at the child care center at the gym. I climb into my stair-stepper desk and I get crap done. I listen to the scriptures. I organize my calender. I post on social media. I respond to emails. Turns out, doing stuff on your phone with two hands engages your core while you climb those imaginary stairs so it's all a win win win. 

My house is a disaster though. I can't clean it when I'm at the gym so I just ignore it instead. You win win win some and you lose some.
