Chores are such a chore

Saturday, January 15, 2011

I was cleaning house this morning, hurrying along trying to get it done when my husband asked me if I was mad and if he had upset me.  No I wasn't mad and he hadn't done anything to upset me but I realized that I was feeling resentful.  Here I am doing laundry and cleaning house when all I want to do is grab my camera and head downtown and take some photos and it was pissing me off. 

The sun is shining today, which is rare here, the skies are usually quite gray in the winter and I want to get out and take advantage of the sunshine.  So he said why not just go then, leave the housework until tomorrow, or heck, don't even do it at all this weekend.  But I can't, I won't enjoy my day knowing I have the house to clean tomorrow and if I leave it and don't do it then all week long it will bug me.  We have two dogs and a cat, they create a lot of hair which then turns into dust bunnies which taunt me all week long if I don't get them.  So just leaving it isn't an option for me. 

I know my new little blog doesn't have a lot of readers yet but if anyone does happen to read this and have some insight into how a person should better handle this I would love to hear from you.  It is so hard to balance work, life and hobbies.  I wish there was a simpler way.
