Sometimes I have to set myself goals to accomplish throughout the day. Actually, setting the goals isn’t the problem, actually getting motivated enough to get my butt in gear to do them is. The television is so alluring. For example, today’s goals are to feed cats (done first), eat (done), go food-shopping (done), blog (doing now), and clean the house (crap). That last one is going to be the hardest of them all. It is so hard to keep my mind in the game and actually clean the entire house.

This place is a wreck. It’s been a while since I took the time to clean this house. It’s been a couple of weeks. Even the cats are beginning to tell me that there is too much cat hair around. They may be scared of the vacuum, but even they want it out and used by me. The problem isn’t that I don’t like to clean, although that is true. The problem is that I am so easily distracted. For example, as I type this out now, I am “listening” to the new Bill Cosby stand-up show on Comedy Central. And even now, I find myself taking frequent breaks from typing to listen to what this wise man says.

I need to get moving. I need to get cleaning. I need to get motived. I need to shave the cats, or possibly burn the house down. At least then it would be clean.

  1. Eh, you’re fine. Just allocate some of tomorrow’s snow day to cleaning. When you don’t like a requirement, it’s perfectly acceptable to kick it to the right indefinitely.

  2. It’s amazing how fast plans can change. I just realized that a J.C. Penny’s didn’t remove the ink security thing on a pair of pants I bought yesterday.
