Just do it

I have a lot of moments lately that I call "just do it" moments. These are the times when I have to decide between my lazy nature and doing what I need to do. Sometimes that means getting up in the morning to go work out, but tonight it was folding laundry. The kids were in bed and I was trying to find any excuse just to lay down and go to sleep myself. But, I knew that it was really the last time I could get it done before we head back to Seattle in the morning. So, I did it. And, it didn't take as long as I thought it would. And, I got to watch TV while I did it, so it went by quickly... All this to say that I am finding more and more that when I just do it, it isn't so bad and when I'm finished, I feel like I accomplished something.

Today was a fabulous day. We went to church this morning and then out to lunch with my parents and then home with sleepy kids. We worked on projects while they slept (Josh cleaned out the car and I cleaned the carpet) and then we went outside when they woke up. Thomas rode his scooter and Charlotte pushed a truck around. We got to talk to 3 of our neighbors and see the neighborhood dogs. The kids were just thrilled to be outside. Then we went to Josh's hockey game. My parents came, too, which meant that I got to actually watch the game. See, fabulous.

And, finally, about the pictures above. These are two more from yesterday, but these were taken by my sister in law, who is a fabulous photographer. The photo of Charlotte will be hanging in our house for years to come.

I totally agree with you. I have been losing to my laziness lately...I will try to follow your lead!
