Housewife Challenge – Days 20-26 The Lazy Days

Somehow I’ve become a complete slug. Not sure if it was a typical failure of week 3 or if it’s just my natural state (who am I kidding, it’s my natural state). I accomplished very little in the last week or so. Seeing the snake completely derailed my plans for the next day or two, since most of what I wanted to get done was in the garden. M had off Good Friday and I wouldn’t normally count it as a day, but we had the HVAC people out to service the AC before summer and while waiting for them we tackled a few weeds and I set up my soaker hose in my raised beds. After a few days with them that way though I don’t think they’re working as well as I’d like. They may not be getting my pea plants enough. The allysum I bought is already dying. I don’t know if it’s the container, our harder water, or what, but it’s looking really sad already. I want to plant it along the fence line but I’m scared of seeing another nope rope so it’s slowly dying while I work up the courage. The last batch bounced back pretty fast after dying multiple times, so hopefully it’ll work. If not, I might be able to take them back to Lowe’s. Not sure about that.

Anyways the following week was even lazier. Was it purely that woman’s reason? Probably I was just too lazy to care much. I managed some meals – spaghetti one night, homemade pizza with leftovers another night, a great breakfast burrito scramble. M worked from home one of the days so I got little done that day for “fear” of disturbing him. Really I was glad of the excuse to do nothing.

Things I could improve:
I failed to schedule anything at all for days 22-26. Perhaps that’s why I didn’t feel any sort of purpose. Having a schedule at least makes me feel a tad bit less lazy.
Perhaps my chore-of-the-days are on the wrong days.

Goals for the final 4 days:

  • Weed whack all the back yard and transplant dead allysum.
  • Buy more mulch from Lowe’s (currently $2.50/bag instead of $3.33) and spread it
  • Fold and put away last week’s laundry, put away this week’s laundry right away
  • Shut off computer at least 2 hours every day
  • Get photos off new camera
  • Plan a “low tech” week for April 22-27th
  • Research recipes to do a keto month for May (M’s request)

One thought on “Housewife Challenge – Days 20-26 The Lazy Days

  1. About laziness and shutting off the computer, for me the reason I wouldn’t meet my housework goals was more that I’m addicted than that I’m truly lazy. And then if I look up and the house is a mess, I feel like getting back on the internet than dealing with it. Last year I made a habit of (usually) not getting on the computer until noon, and setting a limit for non-working internet time afterwards.
