Behind In Chores…

house-cleaning-clip-art-6845After a relaxing weekend, it should have been back to work on Monday.  As usual, chores fall by the way side over the weekend and I had a lot to do.  Unfortunately, things happen.  And I didn’t happen.  I wasn’t feeling good so my grand cleaning plan for Monday fizzled.  It helped that it rained so I didn’t feel as guilty about the outside chores not getting done.  Even feeling awful I was able to get some laundry done, and homeschooling done.  Sometimes you just have to push through.

Tuesday was much the same.  I’m ok with saying I didn’t get everything done.  I took advantage of the moments when I was feeling a little better and curled up on the couch when I was feeling a little worse.  Hubby and son do always take good care of me when I’m not feeling well.

So, how are things for you when you are down sick?  Does everything grind to a halt, or do you just keep going?  Or something in between?

I’m feeling much better today, but chores are going slowly.  It’s amazing how much doesn’t get done while you are down.  I’m going to head outside here in a few to get some garden chores done (like the mulching I need to finish around the tomatoes and potatoes).  Today is usually my bedroom cleaning day…but I missed the kitchen and living room days so I’ll be quite busy catching up.

Hubby said he wants to grill tonight, so I need to plan something other than the spaghetti that is on the menu.  I usually have a couple back up meals on my menu for days when I’m not feeling well or hubby wants something different, but I didn’t really do that this time.  I think maybe I’ll cut up a chicken to grill.  It’s possible that we could have rain by then, so I may have to cook it indoors…unless hubby insists on grilling despite the rain…which he’s done.   Do you make weekly/monthly menus?  How do you handle spur of the moment changes?

That’s it for now.  I’m off to get back to work.  Have a blessed day!

Colossians 3:23-24 – And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
