What I am doing v What I should be doing --
  • Ok, so I am having a motivation issue.  I SHOULD be cleaning the house, doing the laundry, and starting on a paper that is due in two days. I also have an appointment in 3 hours w/ DD and she's still running around in panties.

    What I am doing: Reading the boards and screwing around on Facebook.

    Motivate me - please!! Or, even better, tell me what YOU are doing and should be doing!
  • I should be drying my hair and getting my shit together to go to my interview and do school work. I am on SM!

    haha, you busted me!

    I should be doing research.  Which is why I jumped online, but how I ended up here I have no idea.

    The shoulds. Bad news. Critical. Mean. Always feel vindicated bc they (shoulds) convince us we are always doing the wrong thing. I'm doing my best to rewrite my "should" influence.

    Here's a bit of help *wink* while you are busy with SM & other - the good news "You are doing chat therapy" Therapy that improves your mind so when you're are busy with other lifes stuff your thinking is better! Sounds good to me.

    I should be changing clothes, getting something to eat - get busy with my day instead I'm laying down, enjoying SM, the TV, contemplating a nap. I promise to be nice to myself now, relax & get going in an hour. Compromise

    It's not really like that for us. Dishes still need done, the trash is overflowing, laundry is so bad that if I don't do it today they will be out of pjs. No amount of chat therapy can make me feel good about wasting too much time on the computer, sorry! I'm procrastinating and I need to stop it. Someone needs to kick me in the rump as opposed to telling me I'm justified. With that being said, back to watching Spongebob. :)

    Lol @LivinTheDream I'm on a break ;)
  • Me too - I did make an appointment I had today. It was for a daycare for DD though - high priority! I'm getting off my butt about 30 minutes before DH gets home and doing the "quick clean"  Then when he comes in I'll tell him how EXHAUSTED I am...and head off to watch tv in bed.  
    >:)
  • I got out of dinner last night with pizza.....No idea what I'm going to do tonight. Seriously, I want some fast food or something greasy. Maybe Chinese?? He might go for that!

    Right now hanging here is best for me. I'm learning to accept myself more. I'm getting a real sense of the incredible possibilities that are available in the world so they're available to me. You girls have showed me much, thanks

    I didn't do much stuff today and glad I did this
