I've been busier than usual the past couple of weeks. Whenever I get busy, personal things start to slip. Compromises, if you will. The first thing that gets cut is reading. (I created the lists on the side of this blog to help me motivate myself NOT to cut reading ["I LOVE checklists"...name that movie!]). The second thing that gets cut is laundry. It is so easy for me to justify doing it later. And later. And later. And before long, my laundry pile is three feet tall. Like tonight. Oh gosh.
