What's my motivation?

I woke up this morning with a serious case of "I don't want to". I looked at the laundry sitting in the hallway, the full dishwasher that needs to be emptied, and I just want to blow raspberries at the whole lot of it. Why can't I have Samantha Steven's (Bewitched) nose twinkling power? I want to be able to zap my house to cleanliness without having to lift a finger. That should come standard with birth, in my opinion. Can you imagine how much frustration that would save parents alone?

Anyway, I bypassed the laundry and the dishes, and went straight for the coffee and the laptop. It was a difficult decision to make, you see, but I have a feeling it's going to be one of those days...

Want to try a quiz that will make you feel REALLY, EXTREMELY old? Find out what took place in the year you were born!

  1. Love the kitty pic! Yeah, I know what you mean about having one of those "I don't wanna" days. I've been in one of those for most of the week. Hope things get better. *hugs*

  2. Um I so wish I had the twitching nose power. I feel like I don't wanna every day I wake up! That's not good, huh? LOL

  3. Great pic Cora! I love kitties. :) You know when I always want the nose twitching power? When it's time to move the furniture. I get bored easily and it would make it so much easier to see what fits where. lol

    I swear sometimes lately, I think I'm having an I don't wanna life.

    Hugs. :)

  4. The year you were born? All that happened my junior year of high school. Now, that's old! BTW, love the kitty.

  5. I know the feeling. I get days like that a lot too. Although the Samantha power would really make things so much better.
