Yesterday I thought about doing the laundry. It was a bit rainy and I live in a usually sunny climate. So I knew that the laundromat would be more crowded than usual.

Today I finally got the clothes together and went as early as possible. It was still busier than usual. But I go two loads done. Hooray!

My mother taught me a valuable lesson: the housework will be there when you get back. And it will still be there until it is a convenient time to do it.

Also, my house stays cleaner when I don't wear my glasses.

    i always put off dusting as long as possible. i had to sweep the front stoop because leaves were following me into the house.
but i usually put that off also as long as possible.

    Housework seems to never be DONE, even when you are moving across the country. But that is a goodhousekeeping trick you have. I should not were my glasses more often. emoticon emoticon

    Very cool tip on losing the glasses!
I just finished my laundry up now.
Dishes done. Now am going to make some ham puffs for a Christmas luncheon my water aerobics group is having tomorrow.
I will make sure to work out extra this afternoon and get 90 minutes in the water tomorrow before the luncheon.
Also only take half potions.
I want to enjoy this Christmas season but not regret my bad mistakes come Dec 26th.
Have a great Tuesday!
