I should be cleaning, but instead, I'm writing. This has been a pattern.

Grr. I really should be working on cleaning my room, but it's so hard to motivate myself. It's livable the way it is now, why should I put so much effort in? But I know I'll be happier with a cleaner room. I also want to get a good start on it before I start working, because I know I'll be too tired to do much cleaning or other house/yardwork then. At least I got the lawn mowed today. And I did enjoy Lori's graduation, even though I resented my mom for basically dragging me there.

Even though I have something to do (cleaning), I feel bored. I want something interesting to do. That's probably why I've been reading so much in the past two days. I wish nightskyre could have stayed longer, but his presence probably was keeping me from doing some work. I didn't read my Bible at all while he was here, and still didn't this morning. And I didn't start any of this cleaning in my room until today.

I need to keep working on contentment. The best ways I can see to do this are to read my Bible, clean my room, and somehow continually deal with my mother enough so that I'm not bothered by her. The first two methods seem attainable...
