I think I need a wife. You know, one of those 50's housewives we sort of remember. I have lots of things to do around here since I've retired, but they are interfering with my spotless house ideal. I always thought I would have plenty of time for all the things I like to do and still have that spotless house, which I enjoy on occasion, everyday. Five months into my second retirement I find an endless list of undone to-do stuff and my house is still just sort of clean. What the heck? So, I think I need to find a wife. They don't get paid cash they get to eat the food they cook and wear the clothes they launder and enjoy the house they clean. Yep, I need one of those.
Then I could have all the time in the world to do my fun list of things to do. Oh, I would also really enjoy having one day a week all to myself just to play or read or watch movies or do absolutely nothing.
I suppose I can't have a wife, but I can have a plan. And here it is: I am going to whittle down this list of undone things and stop adding to it. I am going to finish everything I have started since January and NOT start anything new. Eventually, I will have SPARE time.
That's a plan, but it won't work for me. I can't ever NOT start something new. I always have things I want to make, cook, clean out, find or re-arrange. That's who I am, I guess. I will always have more to do than time to do it and I am now thinking, as I type this, that might just be what keeps me going. "They" say that we all need something to get out of bed for and I never have nothing to do so I have conquered that one, at least!
How about you guys? What gets you out of bed in the mornings?
