This week I’ve been thinking a lot about the small stuff.
About how I need less "sweating the small stuff" and more forgetting about the small stuff that makes me feel guilty during the day. My small stuff for today:
- I didn’t eat one vegetable. - I keep meaning to make a good meal list/grocery list/ and actually make meals. - Ben watched cartoons for way too long this morning. - I haven’t exercised in a long time. - I didn’t fold the boys laundry so now its all dirty again. - I took 6 pictures of quilts today…and 0 of my kids. - There was grape on the floor and instead of bending over to pick it up…I kicked it under the fridge. - If I have to play Play Dough one more time this week I’m going to throw it all away when the kids are asleep. - I forgot to brush Ben’s teeth two nights in a row (and I’m a hygienist). - I wore my yoga pants (I don’t do yoga) two days in a row…all day. - We really need to start budgeting more. - I said I wasn’t going to eat out this week…but then I made a wrong turn into the Jimmy Johns drive through.
You get the point…it goes on…and on…and on. So silly isn’t it? And such a big fat waste of brain space. I’m making a commitment to work on it once and for all.
But in the mean time…I went on a sewing rampage last night and finished this top. I think its the fastest I’ve ever made a quilt (and stayed up late doing it). But I love it…and its one thing I don’t feel (too) guilty about. So here’s to positive thinking…and Jimmy Johns.
*After reading some of your comments I really really don't want you to think I'm complaining or that I want you to feel sorry for me...no way hosay. I was just sharing some of the silly thoughts I waste my time worrying/feeling guilty about. :)
