Call it whining. Call it ranting. Call it first world problems. I have perspective but sometimes there are things you just don’t want to do. Maybe you’re tired or you need a break or you’d rather spend your hard-earned money elsewhere. But there’s got to be something you don’t want to do. I’m full of those things tonight and I’m going to let them all out.
Today’s Writing Prompt: What are the things in your life right now that you just don’t want to do?
Here we go…
I don’t wanna…
- Write my post. I love to write but I’ve had so much going on personally in the last 2 weeks that posting has felt more like an obligation than fun. So sorry about that if it feels that way for your too. Also, I’m tired and don’t feel like writing.
- Take care of a sick kid all by myself. With my husband traveling so much, I feel a bit like a part-time single parent. Now he’s home and I’m traveling but I have the sick kid. And it’s hard.
- Find a new place to live. I mean, I do but I don’t. I want to find the perfect house but I want it to be available now for the price I want and we can move in in 30 days.
- Tell anyone that we sold our house. But I guess I just did. We accepted an offer, signed a contract, and now we wait and make sure everything goes as planned. And then we move.
- Go downstairs to pee. Sounds silly but I’m staying at my sister’s in Baltimore. In her old house, she had but one bathroom for the 5 people staying here. And I’m sleeping in the guest room in the attic. And the bathroom is all the way downstairs.
- Sleep another night without my Tempur-Pedic bed. Yes, it’s a first world problem but damn, I love that bed. Any other bed gives me shoulder aches in the morning.
- Be worried about my little guy all night. He waits until we travel out of town to develop a fever and vomiting. And nothing puts me on higher alert than to have a sick little boy,
- Have a tummyache. Because when my little guy throws up, I have a stomachache (real or imagined) until we’re WELL out of the woods.
At least you’re close to Hopkins’ pediatric ER should you need it. Been there, done that. They are wonderful!!
Chin up, Fadra. xo
Hope your little boy gets well soon.
wow congrats on selling the house! And, I’m sorry about sick little boy: SO hard when you’re far from home. Hey: all of us are allowed a night to whine a little, to call out all the things we don’t wanna do, and be ok with it. The morning arrives soon enough, and it’ll expect us to be over it. 🙂
Sicks kids are the worst! The again, having to pee with a bathroom too far away is also unpleasant. I hope this week is a great one for you and that your persona life calms DOWN.
I do hope your little one is feeling better really fast, like today and congrats on selling your house.
aww! Hope your little boy gets better soon! And congrats on the house and good luck on finding a new one!
Congrats on the sale! I hope you find what you are looking for – and that both you and your little dude feel so much better today after some good rest. ((HUGS))
I grew up in Baltimore, Towson really. Hope you find a great house–and congrats on the sale as well.
Also, please pardon the double link to my blog post. A reader kindly informed me of a typo in my first link. You can delete #13 as it is now re-listed as #22! Hope I didn’t mess things up too much. Have a good week!
LOL about the peeing. I was at a track meet yesterday that only had porta-potties and I made it my mission to not have to use the bathroom through the whole 7 hour ordeal – the smell was just atrocious even when you got 20m from them. I succeeded, but then suffered the effects of dehydration.
I am feeling the same thing about writing myself.
Awesome prompt. I never want to write when I’m traveling either. Or when I have a sick child. So I’m amazed you still found the drive to do it in the midst of both! Also – congrats on the house!
