One of Those Days

Today was a day; not an ordinary day where even though you may not want to do your housework (who does?) you still do it because you just have to. No, today was one of those days. The ones that come to me sporadically, though more often than I care to admit, and being with them a lethargy that defies definition.

All day long I lack motivation. I see all the things that I could and should be doing yet I can't muster the energy to get off my lazy butt to do them. I sit around and let the kids veg out with me. That is probably the worst, that I drag my girls down with me.

I guess it's never too late to get started, and actually I have. I did a quick clean so that my hubby would not be frustrated with a messy house when he got home, and that actually turned into a bigger clean than I intended so I'm glad for that. So fear of my husband's disapproval got me motivated today. I wonder what other people use to get motivated.

I am motivated by fresh vacuum marks and febreeze.... hahaha! :)

But- seriously, my motto for housework as of the past decade has been "To be a good steward of what's been given unto me."

I remind myself, my kids and my husband of it during those days where making the bed just seems pointless! :)
