My Thoroughly Unproductive Day


Today is one of those nasty gray, cold, rainy/icy days like only eastern PA
can dish out.  I woke up at 6:45 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep so I got up to make the coffee and
check email. 

My son’s school was running on a two-hour delay because there was sleet forecasted for the early morning
hours.  Of course we woke up to find no precipitation whatsoever.  Do we live in the most moronic school district or what? 

So we all
hung out in our pajamas until 10am when my son’s bus came.  By that time the skies had decided to precipitate, but I’m not entirely sure what’s been coming down out there.  It looks like a combination of ice and rain.

I’ve spent the better part of my day on the stupid computer, but I haven’t even written a single blog post.  I’m not sure what I’ve done, exactly.  I have been working on applying for a blogging job that I’m sure I have no chance of getting, but a girl can dream, can’t she?

I know I’ve contemplated cleaning the bathrooms about twenty-five times, but they’re still growing scientific experiments as I type.  Unless the magic housecleaning fairy has been here without my knowledge.

I haven’t exercised in a week.  I’ve put on a few pounds and am feeling pretty schlumpy.  I can feel my annual winter depression setting in, and I don’t know how to get out of the funk.

I did spend two blissful hours napping with my 2-year old while my 5-year-old played at a neighbor’s house.  I’d have spent all day in bed if I thought I could get away with it.

I suppose my husband would appreciate it if I put some thought into dinner.   I have chicken defrosting in the sink, but I haven’t gotten any further than that.

Do you ever have days like this?  What are you making for dinner?

Well, at least now I can say that I wrote a blog post today.

UPDATE:  The bathrooms are clean.  Woot!  I just decided to tackle them.  I don’t feel any better, but at least the bathrooms are clean. 

I have decided that I put off cleaning because I think I have to have all the clutter picked up before I can clean.  Then as I clean, I take time to organize cabinets and such.  And it takes FOR-EV-ER.  So the next time I put it off until my bathrooms are shameful. 

Seriously, I couldn’t believe the state of things in my kids’ bathroom tonight.  Think truck stop.  No lie.  I would have taken before and after pictures, but my pride got the better of me.  And besides, this is dinnertime, and I wouldn’t want anyone’s mashed potatoes coming back up at the sight of my bathrooms.

All that to say, at least now I can say I accomplished something today.
