There’s always a better time to do stuff. Like all day today I’ve been thinking, “I’ll do the dishes as soon as the kids are down for their nap.” But now the kids are down for their nap and I’m thinking, “I’ll do that after the kids wake up. I don’t want to waste prime both-kids-napping time on doing the dishes.” But then after the kids wake up, one of them will need me for something like food and I’ll be busy dealing with that and won’t ever get to the dishes. Which is probably why my house is in a perpetual state of disarray and I feel like the biggest slacker of all time.
Are you tired of the “reasons I can’t get anything done” posts yet? I’ll try and think of something totally different next time. Or not.
