I've got a million things to do today and I'd like to just run away from them all. I'm bitter because I told myself I was going to get a pedicure this weekend BECAUSE I DESERVE IT, DARN IT, (plus my feet are reeeally sorry lookin') but I was trapped by my "awesome" To Do List. The weekend came and went and my feet are still rough as cobs and I'm still depressed about it.
Well, the next best thing to running away from your work is to become engrossed in something that's not on your list of things to do but will make you feel enormously proud of yourself afterward. I have just the perfect thing.
Yep. Since we're already feeling trapped, let's just extend that feeling to our Small Thing and work on the traps that work so hard in our homes and yet never get much recognition. Think of how THEY feel.
I can think of several traps right off the bat that could use some attention:
Dryer lint trap
Air conditioning filters
Sink food trap/stopper thingies
Car oil filter
Mouse traps (hey, you never know)
Today's Small Thing is to follow the old adage, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em," and clean at least one of the above mentioned traps (or another one of your choice).
It'll be like sticking a finger in the eye of freedom and and saying, "who needs ya??" Yeah, that'll feel good.
Feel free to clean as many traps as you can find- I don't want to hold you back.
What other traps can you find around the house??
