I've been frustrated lately. It seems I don't know how to do diddly-squat.
Anything I want to do requires time, dedication, and know-how.
I don't have any of that.
I'm lucky if I get 5 hours of sleep in a row.
I'm looking for a book called How To Do Diddly-Squat. Because then maybe I could actually do something. It would have to have lots of pictures because I'm a little VSL when it comes to following directions. But it can't contain maps, because I'm not VSL enough to read maps. So maybe lots of big, colorful pictures that show something, and maybe 10 easy steps. We'll call it "Ten Easy Steps to Doing Diddly-Squat". I can handle that!
I'm going to give myself my own personal pep-talk here. When a mom tells me about the things they aspire to do, but they just can't seem to do diddly-squat, I say to them - "but look what you have! A new baby, or ten children, and you're homeschooling and running a household. Give it some time. You can do diddly-squat later, when you're not so busy doing the important stuff".
Does it mean you won't make money right now? Yeah, probably. Does it mean you won't learn a fulfilling new skill? Yup. But will your children be loved, taught, and have wiped noses? Absolutely. And nose-wiping is a very important job!
