time to pay the piper
The downside to being lazy is that you end up getting behind on all the little things that make a house run smoothly. (In which case we must always be running behind because "running smoothly" is not a word that I would associate with my house. Actually, that's probably not quite accurate. What passes for "running smoothly" at one house might be considered utter chaos at another. But we're not into the comparison thing. Probably because we're afraid that we won't measure up. Which is a topic for another day. And I am so far off point now that I don't remember what I started to say. Sigh.)
I think my whole point was that I am feeling a bit overwhelmed and mildly frustrated this morning. And rather than unleash my mild frustration on my poor unsuspecting family, I decided to express my "overwhelmedness" here. Aren't you the lucky one?
So, I am dashing around, paying bills, trying to catch up on the dishes and laundry, get ready for my bible study class and plan to work late tonight. (No, really I am sitting here blogging about all the things I need to be doing. But really, I am going to be doing those things any minute. Really.)
Was my lazy day worth it? You bet. Would I do it again? Yep. Am I going to have a headache by the time this day is over? Not planning on it. Am I content in my circumstances? I surely am. It's a beautiful day out there and the laundry and dishes will still be here tonight when I get home. (Or maybe someone else will take care of them while I am gone!)
I wish you joy this day. Thanks for listening!
