Things I Should Be Doing But Don't

As I'm writing this, I'm sitting here in Iman's basketball shorts [in my case basketball capris since I'm so short?] while I wash 7 loads of laundry. I've run out of bottoms to wear and didn't much feel like wearing a beautiful dress at 10:30 pm on a Sunday night.

Today, I had to face that I needed to do laundry. I hate that realization. Usually I've run out of socks to wear and can't justify buying more [again]. It got me thinking to all of the adult things that I should be doing on a regular basis and I don't do...until absolutely necessary.

1. Laundry. If I did a load a week, I'd probably be much happier. Who likes to spend hours of a day hanging up all of their clothes?

2. Dishes. Seriously, why are doing the dishes so hard?

3. Cooking dinner. I'd much rather go spend $20 on two of us because I am hungry now. 

4. Washing my face, wearing makeup, flossing my teeth, taking a shower more than every other day. My old land lord's joking comment that I shower once a week will always haunt me. C'mon! I shower every other day!

5. Throw out the little pieces of papers I don't need. 

6. Mail the things I say I am going to mail. Always struggled with that one...warrior queen bracelets are coming, I promise!

7. Paint my nails. I always want them painted...but then ignore them.

8. Keep my car clean. Once I tried to do a From Hot Mess to Organized Challenge for a month. I failed.

9. Work out. Okay, I'm working on this one with...dun dun pole dancing classes. You bet there will be a post about this strenuous / fun / outside of the box workout.

10. Call and cancel services I don't need, get a replacement phone, etc.

Things That I'm Doing Instead: 

Obviously, I am a crazy cat lady....time to switch the laundry!
