is not giving up! I don't know how long it has been since I've worked on my habits. A lot of my previously established habits have fallen to the wayside. I guess that means they weren't really habits, doesn't it?
Anyhoo... I'm back. Trying to make my world better.
My habit this week is to re-establish our before bedtime routine.
When dinner is over, it seems like Surferman and I rush to get Grom and Gigi to bed. And then we do whatever we want to do - visit message boards, watch TV, shop for weird stuff on ebay, blog, read blogs, play computer games... you name it. We don't want to do things that will make life easier for us. We don't want to do things that are productive. We just want to do what we want to do. Selfish? Definitely.
Surferman and I had a great coffee date last Wednesday. In addition to watching a LOST recap (LOST restarts 1/31!)
and talking about 2008 vacation plans, we discussed changing our evening routine and getting up earlier.
Here's our list...
Set up coffeemakers
Empty trash / recycles
Layout clothes - Me and Grom
Prep bags (Grom's bag and bag of good food)
Pick up house
Turn off lights (amazing that this needs to be on our list, but we've had problems with it lately)
Tend to Laundry
10:00 pm bedtime
Pray for us. There is a lot of selfishness that is going to have to be put aside to make this happen. And even more selfishness to make this a habit.
