If I were a...

I wondered this morning how I would feel if I were a housekeeper. Then I realized, I am a housekeeper. So I changed my ponderings to how I would feel if I were a paid housekeeper and this were not my house. I walked in the door to all of this, and had one day to whip it all into shape. I think I would quit on the spot. It is not yet 10 a.m. and I have got a full load in the dishwasher, which is now running. I have also fed the horses and the boys, and baked muffins. If you walked in here right now, you would assume I had done nothing at all. But that's okay. I'm going to see just how much I can accomplish today. This afternoon when Micah naps I will have a few choices. I can shower and make myself presentable, as we are planning to go to a concert tonight with the whole family. I can keep cleaning, and prepare something for supper while I'm at it. Or, I can work on my final homework assignment, due on Wednesday. It really is a toss-up. The only thing I can do to make the choice easier when the time comes is to get it clean in here before then, so I can hopefully eliminate one of the three choices. Oh. Right. I also have to go outside and give the horses their oats, a task that is becoming increasingly unappealing as our temperatures drop further and further below zero. Yesterday was our coldest day yet.

Anyway, I could say more today, but I really don't have time. I must continue in my quest to clean up my messy house. Sigh. I hope I'll have a good report to give tomorrow! I'm off for now.
