Laura Howard: Friday Free For All


Friday Free For All

I love Fridays!  As a stay-at-home mom, it doesn't really make sense for me to love them, but I guess I never got over the whole TGIF thing. 
Today is the first day I've gotten out of the house for quite awhile, with the kids being sick and all. It got me thinking.  Strange, but it does happen...
During the winter months, I find that I like to just stay home alot of the time, it just seems easier...especially this year since my youngest is only 9 months old.  And, of course I end up stuck in a rut.  So, I decided that I need to get some motivation!  I'm wondering what other people do to get out of the winter doldrums?  More specifically what do you do?  Do you ever get caught up in wanting to stay home rather than go out in the cold?  And after being inside for an extended period, do you end up with cabin fever?  Leave me a comment and let me know!


  1. I find it hard to make myself get out of the house too. I take my youngest to a playgroup on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Every single time I just want to skip it, but I make myself go. Taylor gets to play with other kids, I get to talk to other moms, and it sets the tone for the rest of the day. I find I will be more productive on those days since I got dressed and had some socialization first thing in the morning.

    Less than 1 month until the 1st day of Spring!

  2. I like how you said getting dressed sets the tone for the day, I totally agree. It's the same for me, I feel so much better after getting out that it makes me wonder why I do it to myself! Such a mystery, good to know I'm not alone :)
