sunday promises.



my husband constantly laughs at me....i am a dreamer; i get an idea in my head and i run with it. sunday's usually consist of how things are going to be different in the upcoming week: we call them sunday promises....you know, you say "this week i am going to _________"....sometimes that blank is exercise more or eat better, sometimes it's more substantial....well, this week it's declutter and clean, in hopes of putting the house on the market in the very near future (something we have talked about for over a year now).
so it's your turn: this week you are going to __________....

Oh, how fun! I do the same thing...this week is to finish up some of my furniture projects in the garage...but this was the same thing I said last Sunday! Good luck with your house and putting it on the market! Take care, Caroline

This week I am going to loose the 2 pounds I gained over the 4th of July and try to find the perfect sconces for my new house.

Mine is to stop skipping breakfast.. I go strait for the coffee.. drink too much of it on an empty stomache and then feel yucky around 10- I of course have been saying I will stop this for a looong time now! lol

Oooh! I like the term Sunday Promises!

This week I am going to revise my children's book manuscript. And revive the dying fern outside. But maybe not in that order.

I need to do the exact same thing! Declutter and clean, since I'm moving out next month. But another thing I need to do is get my print portfolio figured out and finished this week... stressful.

And I love those pictures! they're so beautiful that maybe they can justify not declutter-ing... =)

Sounds so familiar...
This week I'm going to go out walking and this time I'm really gonna do it!

thanks. saying out loud (or virtually outloud) gives it much more reverence.

Mine would be remember the verses in James 3 and control my tongue--- just to be more careful about what I say!

How true that is! Sundays are perfect for the short-term promises. I usually find myself promising myself that I'll be a better mother, better wife, better friend. Sometimes I meet my goals, most of the time I find myself waiting for Sunday to make new ones.

Oh, mine seems to grow and change every week. This week, it is to get back to exercising again. I used the summer heat as an excuse to slack off.
