We rolled into town from a visit with my family around 8pm. I was FREEZING! I complained about the cold all weekend, and when we walked into our house, it was freezing as well! But we ate, unpacked, got the baby ready for bed and warmed up a bit.
Well, I realized that we were out of trash bags and dish detergent and that I needed those leeks to make my broth, etc, etc. So I put on a coat and sucked it up because I knew I had to go to the store...blah.
So, I get to the store and find that they do not have leeks...WHAT?! No leeks? But I always see leeks in the produce department. Granted I've only bought leeks once my whole life, but when I DID want them, a whole bunch of them, they were no where to be found! Double blah!
So again, my fasting plans were about to change. It feels like I have some sort of enemy who's sabotaging my plans to get closer to the Lord (duh...wonder who that could be?). So as I was perusing the produce aisle, I just decided not to stress about not being able to make a leek broth, but to just do a juice and water fast instead.
I bought some of my favorite juices and distilled water and I'm going to start today anyway. So, "Ha ha enemy!" Whose plans were thwarted? Not mine!
But I've been sitting here, sipping my juice and typing for 40 minutes now. I really need to decide when is the best time in my schedule to work on the computer? Flylady suggests that you should use computer time as a reward after you've completed all of your morning routines. I think that's a great idea...but I have a bad habit of just jumping on right when I get up and staying on for a couple of hours. By the time noon rolls around, I find that I haven't done anything to the house and haven't even gotten dressed. And while this blog is definitely serving to keep me accountable (I'm already feeling it). I don't want the time I spend writing it to interfere with making real changes in my life. Just another glitch that I have to iron out.
When do you get on the computer? Do you give yourself a set time every day? Are you logging on throughout the day? Do you get on in the morning or at night? Please share what you do or any suggestions you may have.
