Every Monday, a Clean Slate

Do you make promises to yourself every week, ie, this is the week when I’m going to write every day? Eat healthier and less? Monday mornings start out so hopeful for me. It’s like every week I get a second chance to do better. And then it’s always the same! Ha. Sorry. It is! I never change. Do you?

Actually, that’s not completely true. I introduced exercise into my life a few years ago and I stuck to that. I’ve been eliminating sugar from my diet, which, by the way, I’m blaming for feeling miserable and oppressed for the past week. I’m sure there are other examples, but still. Mostly every week I am still the same person.

I took this picture at the Perry Street fair this weekend. Because of all the hoarder shows, I walk through these street fairs with a different point of view. How many of these buyers and sellers have to climb through their apartments?
