…you might so involved in it that you’ll ignore your surroundings and even your own growing hunger.
Your stomach will then loudly remind you that it needs filling.
So you’ll go into the kitchen to make a rather late lunch.
You’ll reach into the fridge and pull out food.
At some point, you will walk to the cabinet holding the trash can and toss something in…
… and you will notice that the trash bag is full and needs to be taken to the large can in the garage.
On the walk to the garage, you’ll have to navigate the mess in the Man Cave, as you still have not put away the boxes of Christmas decorations.
You’ll sidle through the narrow pathway between your tandem bike and the bins.
You’ll do that thing where you’re carrying a bulky trash bag through a too-small area and you’ll snag some things and they’ll fall over.
So you’ll finish taking the trash bag to the garage and then you’ll go back to the Man Cave and stoop to pick up the mess…
…at which point your ass will pump into the tandem bike and almost knock that rather heavy contraption onto yourself, but you’ll stop the bike from its fall.
And you will breathe a sigh of relief that you’re not lying on the cold floor with a bike on top of you.
A bike that you cannot lift on your own.
And you wonder how you would have gotten out of that mess, as your husband is at work and you don’t have a phone in your pocket to call him.
And you ponder the need for always having a phone in your pocket.
Sort of a I’ve done something stupid (again) and need your help (again) insurance policy.
As you go back upstairs, you’ll see your laptop and get distracted by Facebook, so your stomach will rumble again and remind you that you need lunch.
So you will go back into the kitchen and see the trash can sitting out and be reminded that you need to put an empty bag in.
As you put the empty bag into the trash can, you’ll see some of that nasty gunk that accumulates in garbage cans and you’ll decide to clean it up.
And you do.
Then, as you’re sliding the newly emptied and clean trash can back into its cabinet, you’ll notice that someone spilled food in there at some point and you realize that you need to clean out the cabinet itself.
And while you’re on your hands and knees sweeping up the crumbs, you’ll see that the entire cabinet needs to be cleaned with a rag and cleaner.
And the cabinet door needs cleaning.
And the kick plate under the cabinet.
And the stove just to the left of the trash cabinet.
And the dishwasher to the right of the trash cabinet.
And then you’ll notice that all of the kick plates under the lower cabinets in the kitchen are filthy.
As are the lower cabinets.
And the floor.
So you’ll get on your hands and knees and clean everything, including the kick plates and cabinets and floors.
And you’ll get up, with your knees creaking in protest.
You’ll put away the cleaning supplies.
You’ll wash your hands.
And then your stomach will once again remind you that it is in need of sustenance and so you’ll go back to the food you were preparing to eat.
And you will eat.
And then you’ll remember your unfinished blog post.
But now you have a new blog post idea, so you will work on that.
And you’ll finish it.
You still haven’t finished the first blog post you were working on, but at least now you have a blog post for today.
