A Word from A WAHM

"When I Get Around To It"

© 1999, by Cheryl Demas
I've been working on a big project for weeks, and I've been so frustrated with my lack of progress. This weekend I was thinking if I could just get some time alone, I would be able to get a lot more done.

So I asked my husband if he could take the girls for a few hours. He agreed to take them out for pizza. The girls were excited for their "Daddy Date" and happily waved goodbye. I stood at the door for a minute, listening to, and enjoying the silence. Then I headed for the computer well not quite yet, first I better put away those dishes, and I might as well throw in a load of laundry.

On my way to the laundry room, I walked by the mirror, and noticed that my eyebrows really needed a good plucking. How long has it been since I've had time to do that? And my toes! Wouldn't a nice coat of fresh polish be just the thing for summer?

Now, back to the laundry then I saw my daughter's dress that needed mending, which would just take a second. After all, if I don't get it fixed soon, she will have outgrown it. Then, throw in a load of laundry, and I'd better iron that shirt for tomorrow.

What a great feeling ... I was getting so much accomplished.

Then, finally, I could sit down at the computer and really get some work done!

That's when I heard the key in the door ... "Mom, we're home!"
