Fun?....NOT

But I like to make games of things and time chores?

I usually then discover I have spent more time stressing over it than it takes to actually do it!

I am seeing a counselor re:depression and etc and we are starting at the very foundations...which is daily routines.

Found it! It's a whole new world in here

Nands I'm loving this thread.... I did plan to sort out my bedroon, which is a half converted loft but got side tracked cooking most of the day.

I did clean the half finished kitchen but it's a mess again as I have been cooking. Other half has sat on butt all day watching football!! Come to think of it he did nothing yesterday either. As he is not working and I am the only one earning you'd think he
would have some pride!

Had too keep my mouth shut today! so far so good

yeah but he is cute and charming pixie...you can't have everything

ok..so...i discovered that the dishes can be too hot to take out of the dishwasher...you can tell i never did more than one load before lol

it was a good excuse....and i think the dog walk and reading something in a good book will get in the way too...

but at least i am being productive today...will do some more trash here in a minite...

I think i'm useing some smart tools here...doesn't it talk about physical activity daily and something intelectual??

Maybe if my cup were cleaner i'd get more dates?????? what cha think???
Ha! I'm not much of a coffee drinker, so I get a new coffee cup out, have a cup or two then put it in the sink and I won't drink coffee again for probably 2 or 3 weeks.

But, even so... put a little baking soda in your coffee cup, add a little water to make sort of a baking soda paste, then wipe it out with a dish rag or sponge or whatever you use. It takes coffee stains out very quickly and with very little effort. Then wash as usual.

Okay nands I cleaned the bathroom, living room and kitchen. Picked up garbage, swept, and washed the drapes. Daughter cleaned the catboxes and windexed all glass and windows. I vacuumed all the dog hair from the furniture and took a shower. Just getting ready to join a friend for a movie then gonna come and continue.
It feels good to get this stuff done.
I may .. even .. weed .. the garden ..

Did most of my laundry.

Picked up all the garbage off my floor.

I still need to vacuum. I don't feel like it and don't know if I will.

I think I'm going shopping soon and then I'm going to gorge myself on junk food. I feel really crappy today and I want to eat so much that I pass out. Don't that sound familiar?

notice the women are doing something productive and the men are just complaining about not getting any.......

Well i guess i should expect that with the amount of recovery time Ro has she would grasp and utilize a tool faster than some of us beginners

sorta inspiring...i hope to be Ro in a few more years....

hey bam..you've done real good today...give yourself some credit ok hon (hug)

DK and Ananda can just hook up. Then DK will have someone who appreciates him and Ananda will have someone to help her with the chores. Problem solved. See how rational I am?

*leaves thread to give Ananda and DK their privacy*

I'm waiting DK...where are you

I actually wrote something playfully flirty, but decided it might be a little too much for you boys to handle
