Today marks Day 22 of the Slice of Life challenge. Join me as I work to write every day in March – and beyond!
It’s Monday of spring break. You’d think that I would get my satisfaction today out of going out to the deck, propping up my feeties, listening to the birds chirp and drinking some form of tasty beverage.
Today’s plan? I’ll be strapping on the rubber gloves, wearing old workout gear, grabbing some spray bottles and setting to work on my house.
I’m living the dream, right?
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. It doesn’t sound so very relaxing. I can feel the figurative finger-wags coming from cyberspace now.
To tell you the truth, I’m not a terribly good housecleaner. I’m slow and inefficient. I miss spots. It’s why I’m better at being a picker-upper. Clearing clutter is one of my favorite forms of procrastination.
But hear me out. Even though I don’t like housecleaning, I like being in a clean house. And suffice it to say that over the last weeks, I’ve…let things go. Enough so that I’m feeling the physical compulsion to clean. So after breakfast, it’s time to make like dice and get rolling.
And THEN, if you’ll be looking for me, I’ll be out back in the sunshine.
