I'm a lazy person. I'm sitting here, with bread not baking, dishes not being washed, floors not being vacuumed, clothes not put away, and mashed potatos not mashing.... and I don't feel like getting up. I think it's because I woke up with an earache this morning, and earaches always seem to boss you around a bit.
You try to get up, they say "OH yeah? Well I'M gonna give you a WHOLE LOAD OF PAIN for even THINKING about it! *maniacal laughter*"
So! Enough of that already. I took my husband's oldish earache medicine, and I drowned that little stinker in it! HA!
My earache is diminished, but that meant that my hunger came back. My earache scared that away, too, this morning, to no avail. It's back, so I must eat.
After eating, there's nothing better than sipping at a tall mug of rooibas tea, sweetened with honey just so, with a little splash of milk. Ah.
And, after sipping at tea, so comfy in your chair, the thought of all the dishes and baking and vacuuming and tidying that you have to do seems a heck of a lot bigger than it actually is. And you don't want to get up.
But, I know that my husband is at work by himself today, because the person that was scheduled to work this weekend decided not to show up. I know he could've asked me to come help him today, and I would've, but he wanted me to have my whole weekend off to regenerate, and of course, to get the house clean because I don't often have the will to do it on a weekday.
So, not because I want to, but because I love my husband, I'm going to get off my butt and do my job.
After I'm done my second tea.
