Okay...I know I am not the only one that does this...speak up if you do what I have done today.
I was going to dust the birds...really I was.
Somehow I got sidetracked into cleaning the tile over the tub and scrubbing the tub out...then I thought..hmmm I need to get down there and scrub those baseboards...but then...
I went upstairs and finished vacuuming first, taking a break from the bathroom cleaning.
After vacuuming I see a nick nack shelf I got a while back in a yard sale leaned up over in the corner of Shelbys bedroom. I have been meaning to put it up and redistribute all her nick nacks as they look really jammed up on the three shelves they are on.
I get Shelby to get my tool kit and my miscellaneous bag of screws and hooks, stuff like that.
(Yeah, I know, what happened to dusting the chickens? Or how about that bathroom waiting on me downstairs?)
I put the shelf up...looks good. Start redistributing and dusting everything...looks good.
Hmmm how about this. "Shelby go downstairs and get that nick nack shadow shelf thingie I got in that yard sale thats sitting in the corner of the living room"
Okay, lets put all her horses on this...that looks good..but wait, how about that little nick nack shelf with the dragons on it...we need to move that. Okay, did that.
Dust the bedroom...strip the sheets and bedcovers off the bed.
What? You are asking me what happened to the bathroom...well, its 3:30...and I think I will go on outside and get the animals fed and watered early...and I am sure something else will come up that I find to do out there...to distract me from finishing the bathroom.
Can you tell I had good intentions? LOL.
As I go down the stairs with the vacuum and dust oil and rag in hand I notice the pictures of Shelby cascading down the stair wall need dusting...better go do that before I feed and water...nah...
it is going to be dark at six o'clock. I can do it then.
Oh yes, all this and Shelby did get her schoolwork in, along and along I sat and we did some new math...starting algebra. Back and forth, back and forth...got the clean dishes out, dirty dishes in, except there are too many, they dont all fit...
What? You think I am scatterbrained? Unorganized? Well yes, yes I am. ;)
Okay, well...now, have any of you gotten everything and nothing done all day like this?
