Things I've been avoiding

1) Taking the Christmas photos off of the camera. All 500 of them.

2) The fact that Ashley is leaving (me) in 13 days. 200+ miles away. (Maya- where in Indy are you? Can you watch my little sister for me??)

3) Organizing my cabinets, drawers, and pantry. I always say I am going to do this and then I don't.

4) Laundry. What else is new here?

5) God. Yea- He tells me things sometimes, and sometimes I don't listen. That usually leads to some form of disappointment on my part. I want to listen this time.

6) Confrontation. I'm a people pleaser. This is a bad thing. I usually get walked on and I tend to do things I don't really want to do, because of this. This should stop.

7) Eating more candy. Why avoid this any longer? really?

8) Photos (yes, again). I know, you want to see photos. Come back tomorrow.

9) Homework. ugh.

10) More homework....double ugh.

Oh goodness, we all have super long lists for this don't we?? Just tackle one thing at a time. I think you should start with the candy first. ;)

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who has a long list of things they are avoiding! I think that we should pace ourselves in the new year though...you don't want to do too much at once, right? I say one thing a day...but no more... What do you say? :)

I'm sorry about Ashley when she's coming back?

I understand about God, I've been stubborn for awhile. If I can ever get youtube to upload this video I made Sunday, I want you to watch it. I didn't realize it at the time (taking video of taking Alex home to Indiana) but if you listen to the songs the radio played it's freaky. God was surely speaking to me, and telling me which way to go.

My outlook on this whole mess has been better since then.

I think I'm back. Wiser for the lessons learned, and a bit more broken, but I"m not saying that's a bad thing. It's been a revealing experience.

hmmm, yeah i haven't gotten to the pictures either. we also have a very large and very "naked" christmas tree in our livingroom that is too heavy for me to move- so i guess my hubby is feeling a little unmotivated as well!

can't wait to see you guys tomorrow... hope the weather get a little friendlier!

Christina said...

This is kind of like a list of resolutions! ; )

Did you see my pantry for inspiration? (yesterday's post!)

And... I TOTALLY hear you on the laundry. ugh.

Super Kristen said...

Yeah, start with the candy, that makes everything else better. LOL.

Fire Hunt said...

A lot of these apply to me too!

krissy said...

Candy makes the homework so much better. Just saying.

I have missed you something terrible. I've decided to get back into blogworld again. We'll see how that goes considering I am a underachiever. Bygones.

CissaLynn said...

I can relate to a LOT of this, too!!! :) I just don't know how my pantry gets so messy or my fridge, either! Oh, and I HATE confrontation, too. I have an awful time saying no! I always feel so guilty like I did something wrong!!!
Hang in there!
Have a good week!
Love, Cissa
