Listing Heavily and Floundering

Man In Dirty House 002

We are at the halfway point in this weekend and so, theoretically, I should have completed about half of the things that are on my to-do list for this weekend.

And, while the number is not exactly 50%, it is pretty close.  

Which is like saying Dallas, Texas is pretty close to Melbourne, Australia … if the units you are measuring with are light-years.  In that case, Dallas is practically a suburb of Melbourne.   Or vice versa.

So, in other words, I’ve gotten next to nothing accomplished that I set out to accomplish, though this wasn’t for lack of trying.

I did all of the things I normally do on Saturday.   Vacuuming.  Dusting.  Dishes.  Laundry.  Sprucing things up a bit.  Errands.  Shopping.

No … THAT part of the list is right on track.

The part of the list that is hopelessly behind are the things that I enjoy doing.  Writing.  reading.  Listening to music.  Relaxing.

And I’m not sure I’ll get to those things tomorrow, either.

Maybe in the future I should do the fun things first, and the non-fun things afterwards.

But something tells me I’d never get to the non-fun part of the list.




    • Thank you! That means a lot to me.

      I’m glad you’ve been reading my posts and, hopefully, enjoying them. I have always tried to be a place where people can come and escape from the world for a bit.


  1. You could listen to music while dusting and vacuuming – in fact you could listen to talking books as well while you are laundering and sprucing and the music and words will help you do the chores quicker so you have time to write.

    • There’s an idea! I do have a small fear, however. That I’d get so engrossed in the talking book that I’d end up cleaning up a lot more of the house than I intended to! That would seriously cut into my laziness. 😀
