How many times have I said it? “I need to do (fill in the blank) and I will if I ever get around to it”. All the years I worked outside our home, I would fantasize about being able to home all the time. “If I could just stay home, I would cook better meals. If I didn’t have to work I would have time to sew or craft. If only I could be at home with kids I could help more with their school work and projects. If I ….” Get the drift?
It was only after I was able to leave the outside workforce that I understood those thoughts were just an escape from my reality. The projects I dreamed of did not get done. My house still did not stay clean, the laundry still piled up, I still wanted something quick for dinner.
Here we are in March 2020 and all the time at home we’ve said we wanted has come to many. We are only a few days into “social distancing” (was that already a thing?) and everyone is ready to get back to their other world, that world that just last week we wanted to escape.
We have been handed a situation that can allow us to get around to it. Projects that have been calling for us to come back to them can come out of hiding. Cleaning we’ve been avoiding because we never got around to it can commence. Cooking those meals mostly like have to replace eating out.
Whatever it is that you we’re going to do if you ever got around to it, maybe this is your time!
To keep me reminded I have no excuses, I just ordered this cute coffee mug. Fingers crossed as I have lots and lots of things waiting for me, IF I EVER GET AROUND TO IT. You can order yours by using this link. I may receive a small commission but it will be at no extra cost to you.
