1 Thing Actually Is All Around Us

Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.

Yesterday I had to stay late at work and I had a headache and all I wanted to do was fall into bed when I got home and I opened the door and my roommate was scrubbing the bathtub. Shit. It was my turn to scrub the bathtub, and I even bought new bathtub scrubber stuff earlier in the week, but you know, that was one task and actually scrubbing the bathtub was another and why do today what you can do tomorrow, is my motto. Also I’m a terrible roommate, never live with me. Anyway at first I was like, “Ahhh please stop! Put all the grime back! It’s my turn,” and then she was like, “That’s impossible I’m just going to finish cleaning,” and then I was like, “… I’ll help?” And then I went into my room and had a quiet moment and realized the last thing I wanted to do at that moment was clean anything and also, logistically, how do you help someone clean a very small bathroom, you don’t, so then I came back out and said, “Actually, I am very tired but I will clean the kitchen and vacuum the house tomorrow. Thank you for cleaning the bathroom. Namaste.”

So that’s what I’m doing today.
