Wow. It is absolutely one of those days. Not the everything-is-going-wrong kind of days. That might've been the day when my daughter was driving in 100+ degree weather on a very long trip and her A/C went out triggering the idea that we might have to buy a "new" car AND my son was in VA trying to get to Army camp in WA in the same 100+ degree weather and virtually the whole city was out of power... for a week... AND soon after our A/C in the house went kaput (and still isn't right) triggering the idea that we might have to pay more $ for the cool air than we paid last week. No, it's not that kind of day.
It's the I-can't-seem-to-get-my-buttarski-in-gear kind of day. These frustrate me to no end. I know what I need to do and just can't seem to get myself to do it (just thought of Paul in Romans 7 and am a little comforted). Oh my goodness, I can think of a million things not to do while I'm not doing what I need to do!
ugh. I have done some important things - like my Bible reading and my Bible study - but yeah that's really it. I know. I know. We're not supposed to admit things like this. I just feel like if I don't come clean I'm going to sit around the rest of the day! And here's the thing, the more I sit around the more blah I get! It irritates the heck out of me!!
I've also been to the Storage Unit and found the flowers I needed and put together the centerpieces for tonight. BUT what I NEED to do is exercise! There it is. Right there. I need to exercise. It's not that I don't like to exercise; I do. I love rising to the challenge and conquering it. So what's the problem? I DON'T KNOW.
Is it having 2 kids, both adults, home today and hanging around? Maybe. Is it a feeling of being overwhelmed? Maybe. All I know is once this starts it doesn't get better until I do what I'm putting off. SO, I don't want to do it - but I don't want to do what I'm doing either. I want to finish my day feeling good about what I've done so I WILL get up and do the right thing. I know it will get everything else going and I'll end up being much more productive in general. So there you have it. I've procrastinated by writing this blog long enough.
