I ALWAYS take a nap on weekdays. I completely plan my life so that I have a 75 minute period for reading and sleeping in the middle of my days.
I NEVER make my bed before 2pm (post nap). If it’s made before then, Ryan did it.
I ALWAYS make a full dinner (unless it’s date night). I like to eat that way, plus I like to meal plan, find recipes and cook.
I NEVER make it through the week without yelling at my kids. It used to be that I never made it through a day, so I’m improving.
I ALWAYS struggle with my weight. I’m either going up (and hating it) or going down (and kind of hating it). I wish I didn’t deal with this…it seems SO pathetic to me…but it’s what I do.
I NEVER miss church on Sunday. We go when we travel, we go when it’s conference, we trade off when kids are sick. I truly just LIKE going to church and hate missing.
I ALWAYS go on a weekly date with my husband. Sometimes it’s a game night with friends, sometimes it’s just a walk to the grocery store to get Ben & Jerry’s, sometimes it’s full-on movies and a restaurant, but we always find a few non-kid hours to hang out together every week.
I NEVER clean an area that has a door that can cover it, which means any cabinet, closet, drawer, etc. is an embarrassing, disorganized mess.
I’m ALWAYS reading a book on my nightstand and listening to a book on my MP3.
I NEVER tuck my kids into bed. We read scriptures and a book, most nights, but I cannot muster the energy to follow them upstairs and kiss them in bed. The idea exhausts me and if they want a kiss, they get it on the couch.
I ALWAYS have a few TV shows that I love and NEVER miss: Amazing Race, Survivor, Project Runway, Biggest Loser (reality TV, much?) and Parenthood.
I NEVER eat less than 2 servings of dessert (thus the weight issue).
I ALWAYS exercise, daily. (It doesn’t really take care of multiple servings of dessert, in case you were wondering.)
I NEVER leave a social gathering without worrying that I monopolized the conversation. It’s embarrassing.
I ALWAYS hate missing ANY social event. Girls nights, recipe groups, ward parties, couples outings—if two overlap, I want to die.
I NEVER can do a post without thinking I need to be doing something else…today it’s bills, getting gas, doing Seth’s reading with him….so I’ll be going now.
