Remember that children’s book
“If You Give a Pig a Pancake”?
Here is my own version and a recap on my morning…
If You Give a Girl a Yoga Mat….
If you give a girl a yoga mat, she might do her physical therapy because she knows it’s important to do it every day… though she finds it to be tremendously boring. But before she starts, she may realize that she has to go the bathroom. In the bathroom, she may find that there is no more toilet paper on the roll and is reminded that the rest of her family has not yet mastered the delicate skill of changing the toilet paper. When she goes to the cabinet to get more she discovers that there is none, and remembers that she forgot to retrieve more from the garage…last time. When she goes out into the garage to get more toilet paper, she notices the recycling bin is overflowing onto the floor. While she is in the back yard emptying the recyclables, she notices the wilted vegetables sitting on the picnic table…picked from the garden by her daughter two days ago. She goes back into the house to put the vegetables in the fridge, pulls out the vegetable drawer and just happens to notice that something has fallen behind the drawer. Upon removing the drawer, she discovers a large chunk of food decomposing in a Ziploc bag that is greenish black in color, unidentifiable, and most certainly rotten. With repulsion, she throws the bag in the trash. With the drawer gone, she can now see that the area beneath the drawer is beyond filthy. After she wipes down the fridge, she heads back to the bathroom to deliver the toilet paper and notices her unmade bed. She quick makes it and heads back to the living room where she finds a pile of stuff sitting next to the basement steps waiting to go downstairs. She picks up the pile and heads downstairs because she does not like clutter. As she is putting the clutter away, she notices the bag of salt pellets sitting next to the water softener machine. She quick fills the water softener with pellets and heads back upstairs. When she reaches the top of the steps, she realizes that she is pooped out, but at least her home is a bit closer to being clean and clutter free. At that moment she sees the yoga matt laying there on the floor and remembers that she STILL has not done her physical therapy! Worse yet, she can’t possibly do it now because she is just too %*&@ exhausted!
