I don't know what's wrong with me lately, but I just don't want to do anything I "have to".

I'm usually pretty fastidious. But I let dishes go 2 days, until every surface--counters, kitchen table, coffee table--was covered. I spilled popcorn on the rug yesterday and haven't vacuumed it up. I finally unloaded and re-loaded the dishwasher (that's right, I have a dishwasher--no excuses) just now, but I refuse to wipe down the counters or do the handwashing items tonight.

I was like this at work last week too, dragging my feet.

What's going on? Is it the incessant rain?

Jesse and I have both been going through the same thing. At home I've been playing a "leave it where it lies" game: If I put something down, that's where it stays. Which means shoes and books and papers on every surface.

Must be the weather.

Or maybe it's part of the cleanse somehow. I'd think that the cleansing thing would apply to the activities we do, as well?

and, lately, I've been realizing that a big part of my dissatisfaction is that I don't want to work 80 hours a week. I didn't want to do it 10 years ago--which is why I decided NOT to try to find a big-dollar job--and I sure as hell don't want to do it now, for the pittance I'm making. But I wouldn't want to do it even for the wads o cash, either. Life's too short.

the point there is that dissatisfaction of these sorts help me focus on the things that i actually DO want to do, and help me identify the amount of time I want to spend doing them--or, in the case of unavoidable work, help me minimize the amount of time spent doing them.

Yes, Narya--I think the cleanse had something to do with it. But, given that my cleanse ended around the same time as the rain ended, it's hard to separate the two.
