Every now and again (probably more often than I like to admit!) I have a day where other things take over from what I need to do or I just don't feel like doing what I should be doing.
Today was one of those days!
I had so many good intentions when I woke up this morning but the day has been hijacked by telephone calls and visitors and a general feeling of 'I'll do it tomorrow'.
After today my 'To Do List' for tomorrow includes:
1) A really good vacuum/sweep up in the kitchen as today I was really naughty and kicked all the crumbs and dropped bits of food under the kitchen counter as I didn't feel like getting the vacuum out after preparing breakfast/lunch or dinner. (I have never done this before and it felt really naughty lol!)
2) Use the washing machine as today I didn't. (I did empty the tumble dryer and out everything away though so at least I am all ready to start fresh tomorrow!)
4) Make the chicken curry I had planned for dinner tonight a delicious (left over) chicken curry but because I was talking I ran out of time to prepare it for tonight so instead we had my cheats tortilla pizza (basically a tortilla covered in a tomato sauce (made from quickly mixing tomato puree, tomato ketchup with a splash of Olive Oil and some Basil) and then covering with grated cheese. Definately not a gourmet meal, but very quick and easy and the kids eat it!
5) Make Bolognaise this was meant for tomorrow nights dinner, but I still have to make it otherwise the minced beef won't be fit for human consumption. I think I'll get the slow cooker going in the morning, and then freeze it tomorrow evening. Consolation is I will have some pre-prepared meals in readiness for another 'I'll Do It Tomorrow' day!
Do I feel bad or guilty. No. Everything I have put off can wait until tomorrow, its not like I do it everyday. Just next time maybe I should try and do it when I haven't already got a busy tomorrow!
I should add that my dad had a stroke in early January and following rehab he is now ready to go home (with support from the Stroke Team). So for the last few days I have been having calls from Social Workers, Occupational Therapists and Support Workers to make sure everything is in place. And by everything in place that means a long list of things for me to do (my jobs for tomorrow!) - the perils of being an only child! (That sounds like it should be the title of another blog!)
