I had a dilemma today.
I could write the introspective, thought-provoking post that had been rattling around in my head all day as I drove from place to place.
Or . . . I could do my daily checklist.
The 5% of me that knew I should do the checklist won out over the 95% of me that would much rather write than clean.
Obviously, “always” refers to my preference for writing over cleaning.
So, in the 20 free minutes I had, I:
Emptied the dishwasher.
Loaded the dishwasher and started it.
Swept the kitchen, including the dirt from the do-other-people-actually-grow-these-plants-that-come-home-with-the-kids-in-a-dixie-cup that got knocked off the counter this morning.
Checked the bathrooms for clutter.
Did a sorta-kinda pick-up.
There you go.
