the treadmill of life

After having had Pook home with pinkeye and then taking Monday as a holiday and attending the circus, I'm way, way behind on my To Do list.

It reads, in part:

get to Target
clean fishtank
return jeans
then, before finishing last weeks tasks, I'm ready to add to the list:

This is just not fair. I'm a write-things-down-that-I've-done-just-so-I-can-check-them-off person, and I haven't yet checked off laundry from last week. It can't be on there twice. Unreal. I must be able to see progress or I won't have the motivation to continue. And yet, no progress. I'm a frustrated lab rat. Unless you do the laundry while naked you are simultaneously doing laundry and making more laundry.


  1. I hate that - the never ending circle of laundry. I was doing ok with the laundry thing for a while and then suddenly, I was frantically folding clothes so that I would have clean underwear the next day. I decided to try to turn over a new leaf. We'll see. The leaf has only been turned for 2 weeks, and 2 weeks does not a habit make. :)

  2. I HATE LAUNDRY! It just never goes away. I try to do at least one load a day so it is manageable. Ha, try. Upstairs, looms a basket full of clean clothes needing to be folded/put away and three hampers full of dirty clothes waiting for my attention also. Sigh.
