Cleaning has me occupied.
I've wiped my porch, vacuumed, laundry (including the smelly dog bed), bathed the dog.
Right now I am taking a chocolate and Earl Grey tea break (very very good combination)
and then I shall go to Home Depot to buy potted plants before the kids come home from school.
After I put on my running shoes this morning, I realized that I was avoiding housework.
So I resisted the urge to run in favor of the aforementioned chores.
I shall reward myself after plant buying with a run later this afternoon.
Yes, when the kids are home.
I will use running to avoid mothering....
