SO, after the oven completed it's five hour cycle of burning to a crisp nine or so months of drippings and french fry shards and the like, it was my turn! I spent approximately fifteen minutes vacuuming and wiping out the ashes and for good measure I spent another ten minutes vacuuming the drawer beneath the oven. For a total of about twenty five minutes effort. Which brings me to my question: Why do I put something off for sooooo long that really requires very little time and energy? I think I may be lazy. I hate thinking of myself that way, but I don't know what else would drive me to procrastinate so.
My new plan is this: I will" time" all unsavory activities so when I need to talk myself into a task, I will know exactly the commitment that will be required. For instance, did you know it takes me 45 seconds to empty my dish drainer? Even when it's piled really high! I can empty the drainer and still have time to goof off every evening!
I will continue monitering the time requirements of "Crappy Chores" and keep my list updated.
