We all have that one thing that we feel guilty about. Something in our mom-lives that we are ashamed of, that we feel just isn’t up to snuff and we would love to change. Whatever it may be, I’m not here to judge (unless you let your kids eat Skittles; those things make me gag).
Anyway, my dirty little secret? I am so very lazy. I cannot get my butt out of bed to save my life. And, during the day, if it is not life or death, I will procrastinate and probably not do it. I’ve tried to fix this. I pray about it (I could be better at that). I have made myself a schedule (turns out if I am the only one enforcing the schedule then I think of a million excuses). I try to get out of the house once a day (I am always finding excuses to not do this). And, honestly, I am still working on it.
What is my goal? My goal is to get up every morning before Ellen and get ready for the day and say morning prayers. (But she gets up so early, and I’m pregnant!) I also want to use my time wisely: instead of lolly-gaging around, playing online (but that’s mommy’s social interaction!), putting off tasks or just being a bum (Is anything I do really life or death anyway??), I want to be that Proverbs 31 woman who accomplishes tasks, no matter how small, and uses her life as an example for her children (Who is this lady? Seriously.). I want to be motivated.
So, I will continue to work on this, and any kind advice you have is greatly appreciated and welcome. For now, I thought I would share a few articles I read recently that really struck a cord with me. If you’re having a similar problem, give them a read. And say a prayer for my lazy bones, ok?
Oh, and here are the latest pictures of our guy – in case you need a fuzzy ultra fix.
