Self Portrait Challenge - { pet peeves 4 }

This week, I decided to look at a pet peeve I have with myself...

"I realize that I don't have what it takes. I can will it, but I can't do it. I decide to do good, but I don't really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don't result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time."
Romans 7:18-20 (The Message Bible)


spc peeves 4


I should be doing laundry or sewing work or paperwork or something generally productive, but instead here I am doing nothing but eating right out of the box of Thin Mints...

So glad I'm not the only one who does that with the Thin Mints! They are just sooo good! I ate a half row in 5 minutes while watching the Olympics the other night. eek!

I have my box in the freezer. We have already finished the Samoas! My daughter comes in from college this weekend, they will be gone or what's left goes back with her.

Gotta love Girl Scout cookies and girl scouts! Boy Scout popcorn just doesn't do it for me like cookies.

Your laundry basket is as full as mine and your box of cookies probably is, too. I have found that I am the most productive when I make list and put it on the middle of the dining room table for all to see...and i see it each time I walk through. It is a wonderful feeling to cross things off!

Thanks for the crocheted hat love! And yes, that's me. I'm the one behind the camera most of the time so there aren't many shots of me.

Ahh, cookies are more fun! Who can resist a Thin Mint?

I've never read this verse in the message version before. Ouch. It sums up an awful lot in my life too.
