How do they do it?

Things I have done this weekend:

  • Biked 10 miles
  • Ran 10 miles
  • Kayaked
  • Washed 4 loads of laundry (and folded 3 of them – one’s still in the dryer)
  • Cleaned litter boxes
  • Cooked dinner for the week (mmm, leftovers)

Things I haven’t done this weekend:

  • Any other form of cleaning.

Guess the cats and I will have another week of living in squalor.  I would say that I don’t know where the time goes, but then I look at that list.   It’s not even 7:00 and I am exhausted.  I will probably crawl into bed soon with a good book (and one of above mentioned cats).

How do people do it?  I don’t even have a family to take care of (sorry, cats, you guys are family, but you require little care other than perpetual worship).  And yet I feel like my to-do list just gets longer and longer.

Not that I’m complaining – I chose to spend my time working out and having fun this weekend and I don’t regret it for a minute.  I’ll get the house cleaned up over the week and finish it up next weekend.  I did the important stuff.  I have clean clothes, clean bedding, food to eat, and dishes to eat off of.

But I am further impressed by people who manage to do all of this and then some.

And now, I am off to turn on what I deem my “lazy” alarm.  With all the working out I did today, I’m giving myself tomorrow off, so I’m not getting up til 5:30.  30 extra glorious minutes of sleep. And I will enjoy every one of them.
