I started this post several weeks ago, thinking ahead about the many many things I'd like to accomplish in 2010, but in the last few days, I've taken a step back from that. This week's quote totally had me thinking.
Laundry is the bane of my existence. (In case any of you missed my tweet last night . . . er, I guess it was more this morning. That's right. I'm writing another post at 2 A.M.)
Tackling the laundry got me thinking. Firstly about how many of us would totally love to have a personal laundry assistant. Then about the year to come. So maybe this could be a bit profound?
As I mentioned - 7 hours today, spent on the laundry. Time I could've spent on other things. What other things?
- Movie-ing (is that a word?).
I know it sounds sort of cheesy. But it's true.
Yes, I could have taken the same 7 hours and gotten boatloads of writing/revising/reading done, but there's also value in ensuring my family is happy, healthy and wearing clean, Downy fresh clothes. Right? It's all about weighing priorities, but also making sure you're taking time for you too!
So there's my profound New Year wisdom for you: Take some time for you, but making sure everyone in the family's got clean underwear is also valuable.
You have any deep thoughts to share? Lay it on me!
