What a Depressing Thought...

LifeMarylin17 Comments

I've been being a bit lazy with the housework lately.

It needs doing, and I will do it (I've actually written a list of things now to do by the end of the weekend), but... it just needs doing again doesn't it?

Over. And over. Again.

Then this evening I had a thought. I wonder how many times in my life I'll have to do laundry, and dishes, and clean out the damn rabbit cage.

Quite a depressing thought isn't it?

Thing is, the more I think about it like that, the less likely I am to do what needs to be done.

I'm more likely to see dishes and then think, oh well... I'll wait till we've none left, or not do laundry till we're running out of clean underwear.

Really, that's not the way to go about it, is it?

The longer I leave it, the more overwhelming the whole idea of it is.

So really, I'm letting myself get down in the dumps by not doing the housework, not to mention wearing my Ugly Underwear.

Normally, I'm a glass half full kind of girl. I always have been.

I try to look for silver linings in every situation, and I have been in some icky situations in the past.

Every one of them has had a silver lining.

It occurred to me, I don't do this when it comes to tidying up.

And I should.

When I do the laundry, we all have clean clothes, and get to choose our favourite outfits to wear!

When I do the dishes and tidy the kitchen, I feel much happier as the place looks nice and clean, ready for cooking in!

When the animals are cleaned out, they don't smell!

When the boys' room is tidied up and hoovered, I don't feel embarrassed when their friends come over to play!

I think it's time I used my sunny side up attitude on my housework...

Starting tomorrow.

Maybe.
