When the list of Things To Do is too long, and The Possibilities are enough to make your head spin, I suggest tossing towels over it all and heading to the nearest water source.
Which in our case happens to be a pool on our lot. And if we are wise and make it there in the first hour or so that it is open, the only action in the pool is the lifeguards cleaning it. So we can help by swimming around picking out leaves and moths…
I know I’d rather be cool by the pool than sweating it out doing chores! Although now it is Friday and I have managed to avoid the housework for most of the week, and not only do I work this weekend but have a birthday party to host on Sunday. So out come the cleaning products, in goes the laundry and I face the floors.
Don’t worry though, I’ve promised us that if we get our chores done, or simply can’t do it anymore, the pool will be there for us this afternoon. And might even be clean by the time we get there!
Go where the cool kids are! Or at least where the cooled down kids are! There will be plenty of freezing cold days of winter to spend warming ourselves with housekeeping!
