About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

I Choose to...

The other day I was complaining about having to exercise.
Mandy told me I should tell myself I "choose" to do it, not I "have" to.
Wow.
It really made a difference.
Try it.

You've got one smart girl there Lori! I've just started to notice that if I look at things from a little different angle, it does make all the difference... I try not to think about how long it took me to realize that!

What a great way of looking at it! I'm going to give that a whirl myself! Have a good one, Lori!

Love that! I miss hiking so much. There is no way I can hike and carry a 30 pound baby though! So when exercise is taken away from you you then wish you could get away to actually do it.
I think you have to find something that you "somewhat" enjoy!
But choosing IS the key!
That Mandy, smart smart girl!

Love,
me

Thanks for much for suggesting this different way of looking at things Mandy. Today I am choosing to do housework all day, Jessica is choosing to do her homework and Tim is choosing to do his school planning and marking! It really does work. Mandy you are amazing, we love you.
Lindsay, Tim & Jessica
