Sunday Sloth

Yesterday was an eventful day but today is a completely different story. We headed to church, went to Sam’s Club and came home. Several hours later, the air of slothfulness enveloped me and I was completely taken. I honestly wish I could just feel lazy at times and it would be perfectly okay but not so when my family depends on me for dinner, dishes, laundry etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking for my family but today is just one of those days when I completely wanted to do absolutely nothing.

Luckily, prior to the air of slothfulness hitting me, I managed to thaw the chicken breast for the Ranch chicken that my family just can’t get enough of. I prepared the dinner kicking and screaming, well not literally but you get the picture. I don’t know why but I am just emotionally out of sorts today. There’s an air of negativity that hovers over me and it’s the kind that tries to bring my countenance down as best as it possibly could but it’s really my call. It’s the struggle of the flesh. Who wants to constantly feel just out of wack? Certainly not I!

As the dinner was cooking, the slothful feeling had left me. It must have been that I just wanted to go to a fast food drive-thru and take the easy way but I am glad I stuck it out. Everyone seemed to have really enjoyed the food and I must admit, it has less fat, waaaay less fat than your McD’s McDouble and french fries.

I am truly yet to acquire an all out servant spirit, you know, become the type who never gets lazy at all. My mother is like that. She always seems to want to do something. I wish I had the luxury of having someone do chores, laundry and cook for me as when I was a kid (I came from a place where it was sort of necessary to have hired help in a household) but even when I was afforded that the last time I went for a visit, I demanded them not to wash my clothes and that I would have to do it myself to ensure proper washing (not have my colored clothes bleached out or T-shirt collars all wrung out beyond recognition), but other than that, believe it or not, I am used to doing things without a hired help.

Now, I just need to limit my bout with laziness. It’s just a no can do for any housewife. 🙂
