Some of the most simple things are the most difficult.
Waking up when my alarm goes off
Getting out of bed in the morning
Writing letters to sister missionary friends
Ya get the gist? It's really tough. I was saying the other day to Derek that I think the best way to make sure to be on time to things especially when we have kids is to get ready to go first, then relax. Then I thought, how in the world is that supposed to happen when we can't even do that kidless?! It's so hard!
We are always late. I hate it. This is a habit that is a must break.
Some other habits I'd like to break are snacking when bored, cracking knuckles and neck, chewing on the inside of my lip when I'm really focused, and signing everywhere I go. It seems so normal to me to fingerspell or sign everything I see, but when I imagine watching someone else do it, I'd think they have a serious problem! Tonight I realized it really is a bad habit when Derek told me that I do it in my sleep. Yikes. And the cracking of the bones deal, the temple is THE worst! I hate needing to crack so bad when it is silent, and when you do it, EVERYONE looks at you in disgust. It's so embarrassing.
Ok, I'm not sure how I got on this tangent, but what I'm trying to say is...we really need to learn to be on time to things, even if it's not that important we be there on time. I get so frustrated with myself when I don't start dinner till 8 PM, wait days to put away laundry, leave dishes overnight, and haven't been on time to church in over a year, etc. I feel so much better when I just get things done. So why when all these things make us feel so great, are they so hard?! Crazy thing it is.
I have many new pictures I need to upload, but here is one for now.
Here is half of Zander's Halloween costume. He was a dragon. It was darling. We went to the Witch fest at Gardner Village one day.
I'm dying to see Elf Fest. At least I think that's what it is.
Have any of you seen it yet?
Toodle Pip for now!
