What would you do?

The downstairs has been vacuumed and dusted; the washing machine and dryer are churning away; the groceries have been purchased and put away; supper is in the crock pot. I now have an hour before I must go pick the boys up from school (we’re talking real time here). What should I do? Here’s my options (among many):

  • Sweep and mop the kitchen
  • Vacuum and dust upstairs
  • Write some thank you notes
  • Empty and load the dishwasher
  • Write one of the three blog posts percolating in my brain
  • Work on Bible study
  • Read more of The Three Musketeers (loving it!)
  • Sit on the porch and write a blog post, work on Bible study or read
  • Go for a walk (like for exercise)

What would YOU do?

  1. I vote for “Sit on the porch and write a blog post, work on Bible study or read”. It’s a chance to enjoy the almost Spring weather. We’ve got some serious cabin fever ’round our house so the porch sounds very inviting.

  2. Read the Three Musketeers then go on a walk.

    I was trying to figure out if I should keep reading books or go for a bike ride. Alas, I chose to read.

  3. Well, if you’re interested, I chose the walk. It was such a gorgeous day and I’m glad I was able to spend part of it outside (and with a Matt Chandler sermon on my iPod as well!).

    1. OK, you didn’t say “sweep and dust.” You said “vacuum and dust.”

      And I was thinking as I was going over your options, that I would so want to either take a walk or sit on the porch….. BUT my Martha side would probably kick in and I would feel obligated to be doing some of those household chores. Those never-ending household chores, I might add.

  4. The first four and the last ones are NEVER my go-to options (but often should be), and lately blogging isn’t either (I wish it was sometimes). Nor is the at-home computer work that I should be doing (for pay!).

    It’s usually Read or Sit on the Porch (and do one of the things you mentioned). In fact, today is SO nice here, that I thought of some things I could DO while sitting out there (since I have a long list of to-dos).
