Things I (presumably) Enjoy

I tell myself, I must really enjoy doing these things, because heaven knows, I do them all the time.  These things include:

  • Laundry. Washing, drying, folding, putting away, picking up off the floor.
  • Throwing out perfectly good food that starving Syrian refugees would give their right arm to eat.
  • Asking questions repeatedly simply for the sake of hearing my voice rise in a questioning tone. Please, don't answer me, that would just interrupt the melodious sound of my rising voice.
  • Screaming my children's names. Often the wrong child's name.
  • Thoughtfully planning healthy menus, spending hours cooking them, and then making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for picky children.
  • Doing dishes. See: laundry.
There are many more items to add to the list, but that captures my most favorite past-times.  Fortunately, I get to do all of these things every day!

  1. You can probably think of obsessive people who derive great pleasure from laundry and dish washing. It makes a small part of the world better. Each cycle has a definite end point.

    You may look back, years later, and recognize these threads in the beautiful tapestry your family has woven.
