If I really did what I wanted…
I would iron dish towels, sheets, and underwear.
I would sell all of our surplus china, pizza stones, pots, and vases. We have too many as it is. The ones under the bed really need another home.
I would never check the mail. Period.
I would make everything from scratch. Everything! Bread, crushed tomatoes, pasta, soap, lotion. Everything.
I would vacuum and mop the whole house every day.
I obsessively flatten the dish towels with my hands, and stretch the sheets so tight they look ironed.
I keep the comforter hanging as low as possible so I don’t have to see the mess under the bed.
I give the mail a quick glance, but then it all just goes into the designated mail box to rot. I never go back to it. Ever.
I make sauce from scratch in the summer and freeze it all winter. The rest I buy.
I vacuum and Swiffer the kitchen every afternoon, when PB can’t see me singing and dancing to the Glee soundtrack.
If I really did what I wanted, I would run every single morning.
For now I have to settle for boot camp, yoga, swimming, biking and walking.
I can’t wait to run again!!!!
