Okay, ego aside, Moxie motivation has waned. Seriously. I'd like to know if the recent drop in comments reflects over all readership, or just shy lurkers who don't comment. Now, I am no comment whore, so my only motivation is to ask if there's anything I can do content-wise or format-wise that would reignite the fire under you guys.
I really welcome feedback, so let's hear it.
Okay so this morning, I really meant to use the bathroom, but got sidetracked by:
-Fragile garments strewn about, begging to be hung on one of the 12 white hangers I've freed up by purging my ridiculous closet.
-Aligning the garbage and recycling cans.
-Checking shower liners for the first hint of that insidious pink scum. So far, safe.
-A furious assault on my kids' candy bag in the cupboard, tearing it open ravenously, prepared to fill my gullet with Airheads, Red Vines, whatever, only to discover firecrackers. Shit.
-Massage various fruits to line them up in priority of what needs to be eaten first and what is so far gone that Todd will have to them, lol.
-Wiped down the counter, waiting for toast, making my shake, swallowing baseball-sized vitamins.
-Wrote myself a downright abusive note to finish horrendous paperwork online.
-Kids' chore lists.
After the dentist appointment during which I will find out that due to their error I will have to endure (and pay for) a root canal:
-Finish cleaning under all cabinets.
-Go through kids' clothes. They've each grown a foot.
-Dig through their bunk beds to retrieve at least three of my 45 stolen book lights.
-DO PAPERWORK DO PAPERWORK DO PAPERWORK!
-Organize and clean school/craft shelf.
-Perhaps bleach kitchen floor again.
-Various things that will call out to me throughout the day.
I CHALLENGE YOU TO:
-Clean your kitchen to your favourite tunes.
-Put that washer to use.
-Pick up errant jackets, shoes, books, pythons, etc. off the floor.
-Make all beds.
-Wipe all knobs.
-Rearrange two pieces of furniture.
Make me proud Moxlings. :)
