I don't want to!

I am having one of those days.

Last night before bed I sat down with my planner, my notebook, and the refreshing information I found here on organizing and preparing for a productive day. I thought about the 10 tasks I wanted to get done and then pulled the 3 most important ones and wrote them at the top of my page, those became my Most Important Tasks, more info on that here. Then, feeling rather good about myself, I went to bed. I really like lists and checking things off, so I just knew this would be Pu-errrfect for me.

The problem?

I woke up this morning and did not - I mean DID NOT want to do anything on that list. I didn't even want to look at it. Where was all that enthusiasm I had just hours ago? Seriously, I think I could have accomplished every task on that list last night I was so pumped. This morning I couldn't even congure up the energy to start. Instead, I found every little thing I could do to keep me from doing what was on my list. What is wrong with me?!?!

So, here's to what I didn't get accomplished today:
~the fridge is still full of old leftover containers and something brown and slimy
~there is still a pile of dirty clothes on the floor of my closet
~the floor still needs vacuumed
~the pile of bills/junk mail/paperwork still sits on the kitchen counter
~the living room is still overrun with toys

And, to what I did:
~made banana bread
~made baby food
~played with Lauren
~went shopping with a friend

Here's to a week of getting things done...or not. I guess we shall see what becomes of it.

On a more serious note, I have been having a hard time memorizing my memory verse this time around. Every time I think to practice it or say it over myself it seems like my mind goes somewhere else, or I have something I "need" to do instead. The verse I chose for this week reflects a very personal struggle that I've been going through with God. I need to believe that He knows me. I need to believe that this is a truth I have every right to claim as a daughter of Christ. For some reason, I'm struggling with getting into it. It makes me wonder what spiritual warfare is going on.
I hope that if you are participating you are having better luck this week. If you want to know more about the challenge, go here to read Beth Moore's post.

  1. In my reading last night and I came across a verse that talked about how important we are. I will try to find it again and send it your way! Don't feel bad about not getting everything accomplished....we all have those days and even weeks!!
