Needs vs. Wants
This is what I NEED to do today...

This is what I WANT to do today....

Unfortunately for me, the school has a "No Nakedness" policy. So, needs trump the wants. I will be doing laundry. :S

So, are you getting to do what you want to do today? Or are your needs (or, more likely, your family's needs) getting in the way of your fun?

Cleaning up from the trip, how many days has it been? Where does the stuff keep appearing from?

Heather - I hate getting things unpacked from a trip... it takes me forever...

Eve - I just went to your blog... that's kinda scary! Maybe we have some sort of psychic (or psychotic, take your pick) internet bond?

I want someone to clean my house while I am gone.

I have been doing the needs this morning, but while two of my children are sleeping I am now doing a little bit of wants.

Melissa said...

Annie - I think that's what we all want... someone to clean our house while we get to do the things we want... man... I wish I had a house elf (Okay, yes, I just read the Harry Potter books again...)

Kathleen - wish I was there! I love to paint. I know, weird, eh?
Good luck getting it done!

Leah Joy - I'm glad you got some time to do some of those wants! I squoze (is that a word??) some in for myself too :)

That is EXACTALLY what my hallway looked like this morning! Feels great to be done! Laundry is about the only chore you can get wants and needs in the same time, all the waiting for the dryer!
