Lying on a couch vegetating in front of a L&O marathon while googling whatever pops into my head (does anyone else remember the 80s sitcom that starred 7-ish siblings whose name all started with J...which presidents were bachelors...the name of Booby Goren’s brother?) is my ideal day.
I can be a great starter: emptying an entire closet with plans to clean out and organize, unload a kitchen cabinet with plans to clean and put down new shelf paper.
I can also be a great avoider. If I leave the laundry in the dryer, I don't have to fold it.
My husband says that I'm not lazy (Of course, he knows the husband mantra of being right or happy.).
I can't even pretend to agree.
This morning when I learned about 31 days, I knew I was supposed to do it.
It came to me later on what.
"Go to the ant you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
How long will you lie there, you sluggard?"

My hope/prayer is that the next month will be a time of learning, honest reflection, and encouragement with and from the Lord.
Goals for today:
1. Don't put on pajamas until at least 9 pm. It is OK to change out of scrubs, but wear something you can take the dog outside in, run to get baby girl at dance in, etc. (Ants are dressed and ready for the task at hand or the one that may arise.)
2. Don't lie down on the couch before 9 pm! You will not get up. Don't pretend that you will. You won't. No matter what. Don't lie down, not even for a minute. Got it?!!
