Why am I inside?

I’ve been sitting here for over an hour NOT posting on my blog! This is ridiculous! I keep looking at the empty screen and then filing receipts or paying bills or getting up to check on something, etc. etc. etc.

What I need is some anti-procrastination pills! Or a nice cup of tea and some uninterrupted quilting time! But while I would love to spend the day quilting, what I have to do is (the order of priority is determined by DH):

first priority – get the office work done
second priority – clean the house
third priority – fix something yummy for supper
fourth priority – well, let’s just say DH came up with this list, so I think you can figure out what this item is!!!

According to DH, quilting is way at the bottom of the list. I think 5th, 6th and 7th on the list would include cleaning out the garage, changing the oil in the vehicle and plowing up the back 40 interspersed with more of priority #4 of course!!! After all of that, in my free time, he would generously allow me a couple minutes of quilting time! Naturally, after I’ve seen to the needs of any children or grandchildren that happen to be around!

Okay, maybe I’m a little aggravated with some of the demands that are being made on my time today! Maybe I need to take a “chill pill” Maybe I need to tell DH what he can do with his priorities!!!!

What I think I will do is have that cup of tea, turn on some good music and quilt for half of an hour. Then I’ll dig in and work seriously on #1,2 and 3. After that, well, I’ll think about #4, but I offer no guarantees!!!!


One thought on “Why am I inside?

  1. I can understand the office work part. Have to keep the money flowing. But 2-4 on the list are the ones that always get put off when you “need” to get something done. My hubbie has found that if he helps with the “list”, whatever it happens to be, I’m happier and have energy left to maybe, possibly, think about 4…if I get a nap.
    Otherwise, I suggest one of two answers when he trots out his list. 1) The EYE, normally used on misbehaving children or grand children or 2) A nice big belly laugh and you Must be kidding!
    Of course, I’ve worked for over thirty years on the premise that we are partners. I’m not his mother or his maid to wait on his every whim. So the proper questions each morning are, “What do you have planned for today?” and “Could you help me do this?”.
    Such nice theories. We just do what we need to and try and fit in time for what we want to do. Right now there is barely walking space in the kitchen and livingroom as we get ready for the upcoming weekend antique shows. I try not to notice. I can’t even see my sewing machine right now. Oh well. This too shall pass.
