It's a thin line

between productivity and laziness. Or at least it is for me. Why must it be all or nothing? Most people clean each day. They do their daily chores, put things away when they are done with them, utilize hampers and sleep in beds instead of on couches.

With Chris on third shift and noone coming to visit me anymore, my house has been a war zone. I truly hate cleaning. I would much rather spend my time doing whatever I want to do. And that pretty much boils down to everything BUT cleaning!

Chris comes home from work and goes straight to bed in the morning after waking me up. He then sleeps until Devin gets home. When I get home with Nuby and Peyton in the evening, he's usually still in waking up mode. I spend some time with Devin, usually pick up the living room and kitchen quickly while Chris either runs to get us food or makes us something. We eat, play with the kids for a little bit, put them to bed and then Chris leaves.

Once he leaves, I do NOTHING. I put on my jammies, make a coccoon on the couch and watch endless episodes of The Nanny.

I need to snap out of it and get my arse into gear! Any suggestions?


  1. I can't wait to come down there, make a coccoon on the couch and eat garlic popcorn with you!!

  2. Jennie, looks like I am going to have to come over! yes, that seems to be the best idea ever!!!

  3. I really don't blame you personally :)


Hi! You've reached Jennie. I'm not available right now. So, leave me a message after the tone and I'll be sure to get back with you. 'BEEEEEEEEP"
