Today, the day started with a wonderful morning at the gym. And then something told me to bring home bagels and other goodies for a proper brunch with the kids.
We purchase many extra bagels to be used for breakfasts on other mornings. I am not sure of why but something tells me that I should just do it.
Something seems off but I am not quite sure of what.
After breakfast, the men folk begin their chores. I look at the pile of laundry and have an overwhelming desire to get back into bed and ignore all of it.
Something tells me to fight the desire and dig into the laundry.
Then I move on to house cleaning which includes polishing the kitchen counters, disinfecting the bathrooms and cleaning the tubs. The kids clean their rooms from top to bottom. We clean out closets, items are given away to charity, and the garage is straightened up. I am actually amazed by how much is getting accomplished today.
This leaves me to wonder what that something is that made us decide to get more accomplished in this one day than we have all month…
