Heidi January 7th, 2008
I’m going to tell y’all something that I plan to do.
But it makes me nervous.
Even though it’s not that big of a deal–I’m still afraid of committing to it.
You see, I try really, really hard to take my commitments super seriously.
I only say I’m going to do something when I know for absolute, positive, sure-shootin’ that I’m going to do it.
And if there’s any question about me possibly not doing it, then I won’t commit to it.
Occasionally, this creates tension with Prince Charming…..
“Heidi, will you please do the dishes after dinner tonight?” he’ll kindly ask.
“Tonight? Well, I was going to scan some pictures, but….. I’ll try to do the dishes,” I vaguely respond, avoiding eye contact.
“You’ll try?” he repeats with confusion.
“Well, yeah, I don’t know if I will for sure, but I’ll try,” I explain with a pathetic grin.
“Heidi, either you will or you won’t….. So which one is it?” he probes gently.
He watches me patiently, waiting for a commitment.
Or a no.
I squeeze my eyes shut and clench my teeth tight.
“Okay, fine,” I concede, “Yes, I will do the dishes after dinner tonight.”
Charming shakes his head and smiles, “Thanks, Love.”
So here’s my confession to y’all…..
In an effort to be more consistent with my blog, here is my goal:
Post every day: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Don’t plan to post (unless Charming’s off with the Boy Scouts and the mood strikes just right): Saturday, Sunday
Okay, I said it.
I might regret it later, but I really, really hope not…..
Wish me luck!! :)
