There's the phrase that people use when things aren't going well, 'The stars are stacked up against me". I don't believe in that type of stuff, but it does seem sometimes that when you make a goal that is good, that things just like to get in the way. We went to church yesterday in our ward and then went to a friend's ward also as their son was returning from his mission. I heard repeatedly about righteous desires. My goal was to get 7 hours of sleep a night. I think I've been being blessed with the tiredness to go to bed on time, but things keep coming up. So I've made some action plans to fight back against the stars lining up against me. I will stop with my 'to do' list when I start making dinner. I will make the next day's list at that point. This way I can focus on the kids more when I'm trying to get them ready for bed. That will help avoid some of the conflicts that come up at bedtime with them. It will also keep me off the computer at night. If I have some extra time I will read or cross stitch. Hopefully this will get me in bed at a better time. TONIGHT I WILL GET AT LEAST 7 HOURS OF SLEEP!
