10 excellent reasons not to…

… do house chores.

  1. Obvious: Freja told me not to do them. I listen to her, when her orders suit me. Or when doing what she wants allows me a couple extra sleeping hours.
  2. I’m on vacation. Vacations should be chore-free!
  3. The first episode of The Bachelor – New Zealand has just started. I mean, who’d want to miss out on a guy dating 20 totally awesome chicks to find true love???
  4.  Di, from Matters for the heart reminded me this morning that I had dust bunnies in my spam file (no… I would never compare any of your comments with dirt… I just really like the expression “dust bunnies”).
  5. I could draw myself a hot bath. Make that a bubble bath! Lavender scented, please! Oh, and I could get the wax out… And why not all those creams that every girl buys but that I never use? Oh yeah! Pampering day, baby!!
  6. Maybe I should update my Ipod’s playlist. No, not maybe… I need my latest favs to be added before I have to leave, thinking “dang! I knew I’d run out of time and forget this!!”
  7. There’s blue cheese in the fridge. Need I say more? Hmmm a grilled piece of bread, Danish blue cheese and a drop of honey… Chores can wait.
  8. I’d love a quick nap. Not that I am particularly tired… I am not. But I have the most vivid dreams when I nap in the afternoon.
  9. The weather is beautiful today… Blue sky, warm but not too hot. Perfect for a long walk. An afternoon long. I could eat downtown, go for a movie? Hmmm…
  10. Even if I put my mind to it… I really should make a list of the things I have to do first… I really really should.


So many things to do… So little time.

What are your best excuses, not to get chores done? (See? Just engaging a dialog, to have an 11th one! Clever me!)

    1. Mouahahahahahahahahaha I really laughed out loud when I got to the last one!!

      I’m still thinking about it, and I figured, maybe I shouldn’t put everything back where it belongs… If I do the exact opposite (really make a mess), it might give the impression we’ve been robbed if people break in while I am away! That way, they’d just go on and rob my neighbour instead!

    1. Mouahahahahahaha 2 and 3 are my favorites by far… I’ve actually been using the broom just because I can’t remember where I’ve put the exta bags for my vacuum cleaner LOL

      I think we should travel to Scotland together! For one, it’d be a whole lot of fun (for us, maybe a tad annoying for the rest of the plane, but what will they do? Throw us off the plane??) and that way, we can corner him when we get there!! 😉
