Every Monday when I get up, I vow to do a better job this week.
- I will eat healthier
-I will keep the house cleaner.
- I will not yell at my kids.
-I will not forget to read scriptures.
- I will exercise better.
- I will read to my kids more.
- I will be more patient.
- I will not get behind on the laundry.
- I will keep up on the yardwork.
- I will etc., etc., etc.
I do this every Monday and by Sunday evening, I feel like a miserable failure. So this morning at 3:55am, I woke up and began my weekly ritual of bombarding my brain with to do lists and not to do lists, praying for help that I could actually accomplish some of these things, and giving myself a pep talk about how this week will be different...better than last week.
But....it was so overwhelming and exhausting that I ate a brownie and went back to bed.
Better luck next week!
