I’m having one of those mornings where I look around the house and there’s so much to do:
unload the dishwasher
clean the kitchen
my hand-washing-only dishes are piling up
there’s laundry to fold
I need to sort through my coupons
there’s chicken to cut up
need to plan tonight’s dinner menu!
And of course that’s only the stuff that is imperative to do today. There’s tons of ‘extra’ things to do, like ironing, starting a new load of laundry, my business receipts and reports, etc. etc.
So what do I do? I plant my butt in this chair and blog about it. Cuz I don’t wanna do it. I just don’t! I know I should, and I had extra time this morning- I was up at 5:00 (that darn summer sun!) and my first kiddos don’t arrive until 7:30 (instead of 7:00)…so I SHOULD have spent my time accomplishing those things, but no. I perused Facebook, email, MSN news stories, watched a little bit of the news, took a leisurely shower, drank my coffee, and walked through the house looking at all the mess and thinking, “I really should be cleaning this up”. But nah.
We’re allowed to do that every now and then, right?
I’m only human. And I’m only sharing this because I’m not always the super-woman-constantly-working-hard person. I’m lazy. Through and through I could be super duper lazy. But alas, there is no house fairy who will magically take care of all this for me.
OK. I’m signing off. I’m gonna go DO THOSE THINGS. NOW.
