Why OH why do I do this?

This morning at 7:30 2 of my children had a swim meet. We have been there before but it is in another town that I am not familiar with and the directions were wrong. So I got lost. We asked directions and all was well. But, I had the kids run in and I parked and went in. I had brought some knitting. So I got out my bag and decided to drink bit of my 2 calorie carbonated beverage. Well when I opened it...It got on the floor, my arm and my pants. So I cleaned it up and let the drink settle. After all that I was getting ready to knit when someone came by asking for timers. I agreed to do it but I had stuff on my pants. I thought that being helpful was more important than worrying about the stains on my pants. So I went ahead. My partner was kind of annoying. She did not say anything annoying really but our times were different and she has been doing it for 4 years. This was only my second time. So I could easily make up things to beat myself up about. At one point I told myself to knock it off. If I was doing that terrible someone could have explained what I was doing wrong. So I kept trying to keep the negatives at bay.
I am considering adding a challenge for myself. I am thinking about changing how i to my status. Once a day I would like to put Flutter-by is amazing because and finish the sentence. I would be an excellent way to challenge myself to do one thing well daily. But, it sounds so boastful that I am not sure if I can do it. It would defiantly be a challenge. But it would be a very public way of squelching some of the negatives.
Boy is it scary.
