Why I can't seem to get my housework done...

We are under yet another winter storm advisory...seems to be the norm.  Now one would think that being as I shouldn't go anywhere due to weather, I would at least get my bedroom clean..that has been my goal for about a month now...anyway...logical to think right?

Well..here is my story and I am sticking to it...being as it is trash day and the garbage man doesn't put the lid back on the garbage can, but throws it  I felt the need to get it in the garage before the ice and snow hits and bury it.  So I am outside getting the can and lo and behold my mail lady is driving up...wait she says..so I wait...she hands me a package that will not fit into my box.   Surely this isn't what I think it is I say to self....self answers..oh yes it is!! And I say to self..I just ordered them on Monday..surely not....self  answers..oh yes it is..  I take the package inside and set it on the counter all the while self is screaming...open it, open it!!! I did get the trash can in the garage...although that might be the only thing that gets done today.....

I open the package...oh yeah...so you know I am looking at the patterns...loving them..can't wait to get started....ok...now I tell myself that I have to at least make the bed....self says why? You are going to get back in it.....I shake my head ...no I must get the room clean.....self says it will be there tomorrow...you know how we get things done tomorrow.... The hooker in me is shouting to go grab that hook and work the thread..work the thread...

Ok..I made a deal with myself and the hooker....I say self..we will make the bed...and we will put the clothes away...but then the hooker says I have to share with my friends..so here you go and here I am ....still haven't done my chores..I am so going to ground myself..oh and don't tell my dad I have had conversations with myself and my inner hooker...he will worry about me...hugs my dear friends...

Who could clean with all of that temptation? I know I would be sitting on my expanding behind with a hook in my hand.
Hugs,

Chores are always there no matter how much you attend to and they are not rewarding ......so just let it go.
And, it's just not your story only, you are spoiling all of us to go again and again drooling over these beautiful patterns ....that's why we can't get our household stuff done :))

I know the feeling! Love getting new magazines or books in the mail. I'm going to check out the Etsy shops you recommended.

I love these Japanese crochet books. Only you have to know how to interpret diagrams.

Kim said...

That gave me a good laugh!!

Makes me glad I'm not the only one who has trouble like that. ;)

The books look fantastic, I can't wait to see what you make from them.

Have fun.

The way you tell your story cracks me up! I love the sentence "I made a deal with myself and the hooker."
LOVE it.
Reminds me of my own inner-dialogue. :)
