I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
Yesterday Tomorrow it will feel so good to do laundry clean the bathroom and the kitchen I will help kids straighten up their rooms fill bags for goodwill get groceries go on a run Today What a nice day to let kids play read blogs and comment for the commenting challenge Maybe I'll take the kids to a movie I'll still fit in the run How much longer can I ignore the laundry? This is why being a grown up isn't really working out for me. I tell my students to make a to do list color code it start with priority one check things off, It will feel so good! I tell my children to clean up after themselves do their chores first I sit at my dining room table the sun is pouring in the window the mess is all around me I'm trying to motivate myself To take my own advice. Wish me luck.

LOL I could have written this. I’ve finally designated Saturday as me day. I do what I want and let everything wait until Sunday. Then I scramble to get it all done!
Deb – I often decide to do the same… but sometimes I just can’t relax in the mess… and man can Sunday’s get stressful! But I’m trying to be more zen about the whole thing. 🙂 Thanks for commenting!
So right there with you! I have a to do list about eighty miles long today, including going to the grocery store, and car wash, cleaning house, doing laundry, getting a hair cut, etc., etc., etc. And all I want to do is slice and go to a movie!
Sometimes to do lists are just so depressing, aren’t they? Sometimes I like to make mine at the end of the day… a “Things I’ve done today” list. Then I feel like I’ve accomplished somethings.. .. Like “gave lots of snuggles to my kids” and “made everyone breakfast lunch and dinner” 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
I love making a to-do list, but a Saturday (or snow day) with absolutely no responsibilities is awfully nice too. Enjoy your day!
I agree – a day with no responsibilities is the nicest kind! It’s hard for me to just chill out when the house is a disaster though… wish I were better at front loading all the chores so I could! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
I SO way identify with this! I wish I could read and write and eat all day long. Nothing else!
Sometimes I long for those days of being a kid when you really could just BE on a weekend… someone else did the cooking and the dishes…. ahhhhh… 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
The nice thing about being an adult is that we don’t always have to follow the advice we give…as long as we are not caught and called to task because of it. 🙂
Very true! Sometimes is nice to just remember that as an adult I COULD decide to not follow the ‘rules…’ it doesn’t even matter if I do or don’t… just the knowledge!
🙂 Thanks for leaving a comment. 🙂
I do wish you luck but . . . Give yourself permission to let it go sometimes!
Is this when I should start singing Frozen songs? 🙂 My problem might be that I let it go too much… but on Saturday I did a little of both… laundry all folded… took the kids to a movie. win win!
Really…remember, it will feel good. Of course, I am the pot calling the kettle black. xo nanc
🙂 That’s what I tell myself… it will feel good if everything is all straightened and cleaned up… that’s why I wish for a clean up fairy. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Had to laugh when I read this, and then “I’m trying to motivate myself to take my own advice.” 🙂
The funny thing is just how many times I have to motivate myself to take my own advice. 🙂 You’d think it would be easier! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 🙂
We’ve all been there. Your intentions were good but sometimes we need to live in the moment and not according to our lists. Enjoy!
It used to be so much easier to relax… but I’m trying. 🙂 thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. 🙂
Good luck, but it sounds like you are making the right choices for you. There will always be laundry.
Isn’t that the truth? There will also always be dishes… and in my house there will always be legos, puzzles, paper and markers all. over. But sometimes you just have to ignore it.
Love this, Ona! When you figure out the secret to taking that advice, please be sure to let me know!
Thanks! Yea… don’t hold your breath. 🙂 I’m pretty sure I haven’t been good at this ever! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
