Winter is my don’t wanna time it seems.
There are a thousand things (well maybe a hundred) that need to be done, but this evening I am just in a mood that I don’t feel like it.
There is a nearly finished project on the garage that I could have brought closer to completion, so I can get it out of my way,
I could have cleaned up the work shop so I could find my tools,
I could have straightened up my studio so I can get to my guitars and maybe play a little bit just to see if I remember how, ………….
I should empty the dishwasher but I don’t wanna.
My check came in yesterday and I should go pay the bills , but I just don’t wanna.
I have all the paperwork to do our taxes, and I know were getting a good size refund,
but ( ok class- ) ” I just don’t wanna”. That’s right class.
While I have the evening free, (the wife is babysitting overnight one of our grandkids because our daughter and her husband both work in public service jobs that entail long odd hours), I could find those missing brio track sections on ebay we need and get them bought so we have complete set for all the boys to play with when they come over,
BUT– You guessed it. I DONT WANNA.
I DID run the dishwasher so at least I got that done. I feel that is good enough for one evening. Now it is ME time.
And if I don’t feel like doing anything but mindless things on the computer, Like write a silly blog entry, then by gosh o gee willikers I’m gonna do just that.
And if runnning spell check seams liek to much of a bother — well i guess yu know whats gonna happen here- I aint gonna run it, becuase I dont wanna.
In these winter months there is so much that we cold get done, but it seems the cold, the lack of sun, the after holiday blues or what ever it is just gangs up on you, and a person just has to say – “I’m not going to do anything if I don’t want to today”.
After all just once in a while you need some time to not do anything at all unless you want to.
So if when I get up tomorrow I don’t feel like going to work, well, I will probably go in anyway because I am not a convincing liar on the phone about being sick.
I hope this truly inspire you to take a day for your self, heck take a week, or a month , or the WHOLE dam WINTER if you feel like it, to do ONLY what you wanna do , and not one thing more.
When March comes, and none of this stuff is done that i COULD have gotten out of the way, well I’ll deal with the guilt trip then (gulp) – Maybe. And I will Probably get mad at myself for not getting these chores done before the weather turned out real nice!
P.S. I have NO idea how the tag tool come up with its suggested tags for this article. It is recommending the following: Arts, New York, Humor, Video Games, Games, God androle playing. now after you have read all of this article how in the world does it come up with those suggestions? ( and that is before I wrote this section, obviously)
