Irony? . . . or Synchronicity!

Well, it certainly is not what I was expecting this morning, but the timing could not have been better!

I ended up going to bed late last night, so as soon as I woke up I was thinking about this goal, and why I keep putting various Go-To-Bed-Early goals on my list when I am obviously not ready to abide by arbitrary rules for MY bedtime. On the other hand, this is the third time in my seven years here that I’ve had this sort of goal on my list. I worded this one myself, thinking I would be able to relate to it.

But no.

But then again, yes!

I posted an entry last night before I went to bed, relating what this goal means to me. When I woke up this morning, I decided to make another post (this post), explaining to myself the reasons I might have for continuing to tell myself to go to bed “on time” and then never doing it.

Meanwhile, I awoke to a comment that kind of told me I was doing it all wrong (not that she meant it that way). It got me to really delve into WHY this is one of my goals at all, and I had a nice breakthrough, which ended up addressing the very issue I opened my computer to discuss this morning.

And now, I don’t have to rewrite the whole thing because it’s right here.

This is what the goal means . . . . I guess.

I was on my way to bed at 10:56 and my mom texted me R U up?

I suppose I could have lied and not called her back. But I don’t lie, so I called. We talked about the day and what we each had accomplished. I had quite a list today! And because I did have such a great day, I decided to upload a few pictures to my computer, and then after I hung up the phone, I found myself here, posting said pictures, along with the stories they belong to.

Tomorrow I have to put my laundry away, study muscle anatomy, have a piano lesson, meet with the Gilbert temple presidency, make dinner, and prepare a poster for an upcoming meeting.

Looks like another busy day. I’d better get to bed!

RIBS

Succulence on a bone.

Mmmm-mmm!

And what side dish doesn’t want to be served alongside ribs?!

These didn’t last long. I’m glad I took the picture as I was taking them off the grill.
