It is Friday, catch-up day here at our house. I still haven’t found a better system than the one I started last year, where we started taking Friday off from school. Since Gabe is nearly always studying, working, or sleeping after night shift on Saturdays, we finish up the week’s lessons then. I really hate coming to Saturday and working like a horse all day, so I opt to do that the day before, and just like that our Saturday is fun again! It works for us.
After a week of what can only be described as free-lance housekeeping, a bushel of tomatoes (I will share a great recipe in the next post), and a couple buckets of green beans, this house needs Friday! And here I sit, my 28 oz. mug of Earl Grey nearly empty, having accomplished nothing except feeding and dressing the littles. I don’t even care. I call it The Inertia of Too Much to Do. Eventually something will happen that will give me a kick in the rear and I will fly into action. But right now? It feels a little like the woman whose husband hid the cookies from his wife “for your own good”. She disagreed, “No, what is good for me right now is cookies!”
What is good for me right now is a Ginormous mug of tea and no schedule whispering dire threats. What do you do when you hit The Inertia?
