I’m sipping my coffee as I wait for my brain to wake up and I’m staring at Sylvia’s reading nook where lies a heap of the weekend’s laundry. I was supposed to use the last day of my 9 day break to finally organize my closet, but there it is, evidence of my superior ability to procrastinate, staring right back at me. It’s a simple matter really, fold then pile together clothes of similar use, i.e. for going out, for the office or for staying at home. Then further separate them by certain characteristics: collared, full sleeves, sleeveless. Then come the linens, separate pillowcases from quilt covers, then the towels, etc. I know exactly what to do and even just how long it would take me to do it. But sadly, as with most things in my life, just thinking about it already exhausts me. So me and my pile of laundry will just continue this staring contest until one of us (namely, me) finally gives in and does what’s necessary.
