Wanna know why?
It's because I've been doing it.
Funny thing. The more you do what is required of you, the more satisfied you feel at the end of the day.
But let me back up.
As the summer has worn on, and really over the last year or so, I've been feeling more and more unmotivated. More and more like I just really didn't want to do anything, let alone the dishes. Or entertaining two preschoolers and a baby...or the laundry, the bathrooms and the floors. In fact, what I really wanted to do was go to the beach. By myself.
Here's the problem with not wanting to do anything. The problem is that I still had an entire day to fill and three kids to...do something with. Something. And at the end of every day, days of not really doing what was required of me, I would feel sort of empty. Not to mention the house. I felt like I was being buried under the sheer magnitude of housework. And nothing ever felt clean.
Not a good way to end the day.
