Never Give In

Last night I went to Provo for our weekly visit with Brian and Paula.

Teresa didn't go because Matt (Josh & Heather's boy) had a little encounter with some "Orange Glo".

(Nothing serious but we weren't sure until we waited a while for symptoms)

So I spent the evening alone with Becca and Katie and had a great time.

Not sure Katie did cause she cried while Mom and Dad were gone. But I got to watch the BYU game and time passed pretty well.

On the way home, I decided to stop and get a burger and drink.

Tiredness and worry about sleeping while driving made me consider and then approve the purchase of a small caffeine
laced drink. I admit that it was a moment of weakness, founded on a rationalization. I HAD A DR. PEPPER!!!

And boy did I pay for it. It did its job. The caffeine penetrated my system and kept me awake.


What do we learn from this little encounter with the dark side?

Don't give in to temptation and NEVER let rationalization get you out of where you should be. I have repented and hope I never repeat this mistake again. I saw every hour and many of the ½ hours throughout the long and dreary night. Finally decided to give up and get out of bed at 4:30. Stupid, stupid, stupid!

I will NEVER, EVER buy or use Orange Glo products from here on out. They have lost a lifetime worth of clean, polished surfaces at my house! What a scare.
