REPEAT

Sadly, my kids don't even understand this correlation...
I’m in a rut. My inner voice is stuck on repeat. I’m a broken record, Someone pick up the needle and MAKE IT STOP!
These are the statements I continuously repeat EVERY SINGLE WEEK DAY and quite frankly, I need a break:


4:45am  the Alarm (capitlized because it is a living thing) goes off. In the REAL WORLD, not my OCD life, it is 4:30am, but my clock is set 15 minutes fast.
If you don’t do this, you will never understand. I know there are more out there like me so stop making fun of me already.

Anyway back to FAKE 4:45am – Alarm goes off.

Inner voice says: It’s not REALLY 4:45am, hit snooze.

15 minutes later Alarm goes off.

Inner voice says: It’s now 4:45am if you hit snooze one more time you will have exactly an hour to get ready.


15 minutes later Alarm goes off.

Inner voice says: You don’t HAVE to get up to workout, if you hit snooze you can sleep and just get ready.

15 minutes later Alarm goes off and then my inner voice has the audacity to call me a loser for not working out!
Now I’m in the shower.

Inner voice says: What are you gonna wear today, what am I going to wear today, what are we going to wear today?

I’m racing to the kitchen trying to get out the door.

Inner voice says: What are you going to pack for lunch, what are we going to pack for lunch, what is edible I can take for lunch?

On the drive home from work Inner voice says:

What are you going to blog about, What are you going to blog about, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BLOG ABOUT??

Do you think I have a problem?

I think my inner voice needs to go on vacation.

What does your inner voice repeat over and over to the point of wanting to slam your head against the wall?

Your alarm clock situation made me laugh. Mine is set 5 min. ahead, my husband's is set 10 min. ahead. My snooze is 9 minutes long. Each press of the snooze button requires complex (hey, when you're mostly asleep it's complex!) mathematical computation. Additionally, my clock in my car is 5 minutes slow, while my husband's is 9 minutes fast. More math. Incidentally, none of this keeps me from bring late for pretty much everything.

My inner voice when I'm running is like that sweet, gentle mother who really doesn't believe in you ("It's ok if you can't run that fast, just slow down...you can walk if you need to...why would they think you could do that?"). Uh...thanks for the vote of confidence!

Oh geez......if I listened to half of what that inner voice woman said I would be in more trouble than I usually am. Can you imagine?
