Looking at my house, you can tell that cleaning isn’t high on my must-do list. There are too many other things on my need-to-do list. Luckily, there are a couple of things I enjoy: balancing my checkbook and laundry.
When my checkbook is balanced, I feel like my life is in order. Today I spent the better part of my free time —about three hours—doing it. I was astonished to see that I haven’t for three months. No wonder I felt so frazzled, so stressed. Not anymore. Just going through everything and making some credit card payments has made me feel lighter. A huge burden has been lifted. WHEW.
As for laundry, it calms me. There is something about the sorting, the timing and the folding that I find relaxing. I can’t put my finger on it, but I really enjoy doing this chore—always have. [Sorry, I won’t do yours.]
Is there a household chore you like to do? Maybe even savor? If so, share.
