The Sabbath Syndrome

It's Sunday, a day of rest. Critter wasn't up to church, and I'm just not great at self-motivation to get to church. Missed Life Group on Friday, due to getting home so late from work that morning.

So I slept in until noon, then got up and fixed a bit of breakfast, checked in with the kids. Put away some newspapers, read LJ/email/played Sudoku...

A day of rest.

Except. The house is a mess, and I'm using up Monday on doctor's appointments (me to the eye doctor; Critter to the FP for a cough), and then I re-start the work/sleep/no time cycle.

I've come to realize that I need to expend at least a bit of my weekend on house-chores or I'll never catch up attain my internal house condition desires.

So I'm doing chores. But I'm also sipping on wine, stopping quite often for online time, and well, resting.

I even got out of the house. I picked up a book for Flar and a book-on-CD for me, a items at CVS and Tigger, who went home with T this afternoon.

At this point, I've got the Jacuzzi cleared as a workspace, I'm running laundry through the machines, I'm ripping the Book-on-CD for playing on my Treo, and thinking about dinner. Maybe by the end of the evening all the laundry that is still dirty will fit in the sorting baskets, closed.

And heck, while it's such a small amount, maybe I'll even catch up Quicken again.

Meanwhile, I'll have a book on CD to listen to in the morning, in case the eye doctor dilates my eyes. :)
