What I Didn't Accomplish This Week, But Should Have

Have you ever had a day when you are lazy?  You know, you look around at dishes in the sink and laundry piling up, but put on blinders and a good movie.  I know I have.  But, I haven't just had a lazy day, I've had a lazy week.  The dishes are washed and the bed is made, but that's all I remember doing this week.  I've been reading.  I've been on Facebook. I've been sitting in the yard looking at the plants and the weeds.  Telling myself I had best get up and weed before the weeds take over.  Instead I found a dragonfly to watch as he dived into the water bath I have on the table.

Here's what I know I didn't accomplish this week:

1.Baking my dessert for the week.
2.Cooking any meals, but one.
3.Washing the bed linen.
4.Cleaning the upstairs bathroom.  Even though I don't use it, it collects dust.
5. Dusting the upstairs bedrooms and loft.

What I did accomplish:

1.Bring a small lamp downstairs and put it in the kitchen.  I'm not sure I'll leave it there.  I'll think about it for a while. (lazily)
2.Two posts on the blog.
3.Wrote a check to a charity, but have not mailed it yet.
4.Made ice tea. (not sweetened)
5.Warmed up a pizza for lunches.
6.Cleaned the powder room.
7.Vacuumed and dusted the floors. The furniture can wait.
8.Ate a bowl of ice cream with cherries and bananas and half a apple juice frozen pop.
9.Dishes in the dishwasher. They're still in there.
10. Made some medical calls for my brother.
11.Took a couple of naps.  Then went to bed on time.
12.Watched half a movie.  When I can figure out the ending early on, I loose interest.

What did you do -or didn't do this week?  Please let me know I'm not the laziest person on earth this week.

The long suffering pup, Marley.  She's got the patience of a saint.  I did feed her this week.  She's safe, just a bit humiliated.


  1. Marley really IS a sweetheart, isn't she? Well, I've been lazy too long, and in fact we all have been in my household. It's time to tackle all of the projects that have lingered. We need to do some major clearing out, organizing and cleaning. You'd be amazed at how much junk... er... I mean wonderful stuff... can accumulate in a small house with four pack rats living in it. But it can wait no longer. This summer's project is all about de-cluttering and purging... then cleaning one room at a time, ceiling to floor boards. I can't do it all myself. My son's aren't happy. But that's the way it goes sometimes. They'll be happy and feel satisfied with themselves when the house doesn't look like we're all hoarders-in-training.

  2. Good luck with your projects. I know you will stand back and be satisfied with the results.

  3. We tackled the worst room of the house today... the office. It took three of us, several bags of recycle and trash, plus a trunk load of donations to drop off, but it's clean. As in right-down-to-the-floor-boards clean. It hasn't been this clean in years. While sorting through papers, I actually came across a high school report card for DS2 who is starting his junior year of college. My husband was shocked when he saw the room tonight.

  4. Wow. Good job! Doesn't it feel so good?
