Throwback Thursday: Motivation

From September 28, 2017, a quick post that still makes me giggle:


Sometimes, I finally convince myself to tackle those chores.

That’s when a large, imposing matron of mood swings leans across, slaps me back down, and says:

We don’t need no motivation.
Hey! Leave those clothes alone!

    Who, ever, in the history of Matron’s (even carry on matron) can or has disregarded such orders? Such strong advice must be adheared to.

    Matron of mood swings is giggle-worthy.

    There’s a joke about Southern Belles, wherein one proclaims: “Every time I feels a speck of energy coming on, I just lays down until it passes!” Same concept. Me? I just find all sorts of reasons why I really really need to do something else instead…

      Oh, don’t worry. I’ve got avoiding motivation down to an art these days. That, or I’m exhausted.

        Several small children, new baby…yeah, I can see that maybe leaving you a little exhausted.

      Meh; it’s a random thought on a late night sort of thing. 🙂

        sometimes late night random thoughts produce the best results; not all good things come from cogitation 🙂

    Hubby had a room mate once who didn’t like to wear a pair of socks more than once… I just hope he donated them…
    And if the choice is no clothes… don’t live in a glass house (especially without curtains!).
