After a weekend spent lazing about, eating frozen food, and getting my only activity in the form of a walk to and from the bathroom, I was pretty psyched to get my life back on track today. Don’t get me wrong, I was tempted to take the fella up on his offer to lounge in the park and occasionally throw a Frisbee today, but in the end cleaning my apartment, doing laundry and logging a few hours of writing won out.

How’s that for maturity?!

I know that cleaning and laundry are technically simple activities that I have to do, yet somehow having done them always makes me feel like a mature and accomplished adult. A little Lysol and I’m ready to start talking retirement plans and complaining about ‘kids these days.’ Once and a while it’s really nice to just take a little time, put everything else on hold, and get your life in order: for me that means cleaning, paying bills, organizing receipts, and ordering household cleaners on Alice.com. Now, I may have mentioned this once or twice but I have a few anal retentive tendencies, but I really do feel that when the space around me feels like it’s taken care of, my own mental space is less cluttered. Also, I have fewer procrastination excuses.

As weird as this may sound, I found today far more relaxing than my weekend spent in bed. Go figure.
