the avoidance post

I should be:
  1. Putting away Christmas decorations
  2. Washing clothes
  3. Scrubbing a toilet or three
  4. Grading poems
  5. Unloading the dishwasher
  6. Delivering [more] bags to Goodwill
  7. Thinking about what to have for dinner
  8. Performing many other important household chores

But I am stuck, feeling foggy & tired; lying down for an hour or so sounds good but seems indulgent and decadent. Like I should put on a negligee, grab a martini & a Valium and swagger up to my bed muttering for the children to be quiet while Mommy takes a break. That would be wrong, right?

I'm with you - I have tons to do and absolutely no desire to do any of it.

I think I shall practice my moaning.

You could get one of those Ambien from Jen (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

I think it would be oh, so right. Hope it happened for you.
