Excuse me,

Not in 2008

Here are some my 2007 stumbling blocks:

My marriage is not as strong as it should./could be. Well, it is my husband’s fault. He just does not appreciate me.

I am now twenty pounds heavier than I would like to/need to be. Well I hurt my back in September and I am afraid to (re)injury it…

I have far too many UFO in my sewing basket. Well it takes too much time to sew in my living/dining rooms. I have to set up and take down the machine and put away supplies and put up the ironing board etc…

We rarely go out as a family or as a couple, Well, money is tight and everyone is so busy or so tired..

Last week I decided that I will no longer tolerate excuses. Not even from myself.

I now tell my husband how much I appreciate him as a man, a husband and as a father
I have started exercising again, that weight won’t disappear on its own
I have started the construction on my basement sewing room.
I will no longer waste money on buying lunch from a restaurant and I have started searching the circulars for grocery deals and clipping coupons.

I realize that God has blessed me with all I need and that I have been blocking my own blessings.

“excuses are tools of the incompetent that build bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness, those who specialize in their usage are seldom capable of anything else”
