Monday's Conundrum

Monday's Conundrum 

Monday, Sept. 8  2014

Finally, after a few years of it first blog posting. :)
Last night was like every Sunday before.  A list of plans and goals for Monday went running through my head.  "Ok...this is the week we are going to get started!  Mom is at Emily's house, so you are FREE!!  We will exercise, (do you all refer to yourselves as "we" when you have conversations in your head?  Like you are a team with yourself?  I think I just may be my best friend...whoo hoo!  Go WE!! Weird.)  Anyway, we will clean the house, we will decorate for fall outside, and heck, inside too!  We will TAKE ON THE WORLD!!!
Well, it is 11:30, I am sitting here in my underwear (so sorry Mr. Mailman.) He just walked up and rang the doorbell.  We got a package.  He got a show.
I had great intentions when I woke up.  Get ready and get going.  Then "we" start talking again.  We is really a little $#*& in the morning.  At night, she is very motivated and gives awesome advice.  In the morning, she (I assume she is a she?) starts creeping in with this manipulative crap.  She gives me the "you could take that cup of coffee into the bedroom and turn on the TV, and we could watch just one of the shows you recorded last night.  I mean, you know how you (see how she blames ME here!) hate getting behind on your programs (I love that word...programs) and feel like you can never catch up." 
So, I stand in the middle of the kitchen, wondering what to do.  And the biggest problem here is that there are several genes I was lacking at birth.  I am sure this has peaked your interest, so I will list them here for you.
  1. Willpower
  2. Motivation
  3. Ability to stay awake for long periods of time
  4. Morning person-ness
  5. Ability to be pleasant when I am tired, hungry or have a headache. (or cramps)
  6. Desire to put things away
As you can see, these are pretty serious genes to be lacking.  #1 and #2 really hinder my ability to exercise or clean, or really do much of anything.  #6 doesn't necessarily hindering my progress in starting a's just the finishing part (aka: cleaning up) I detest.
So, let's consider today a success, since I did set up this blog, and I do plan to sit in the bath next, rather then my bed.  TUESDAY is a great day for taking on the world! :)
