I just folded and put away clothes that were recently washed while everyone was asleep.
If you’re a parent with your neurotransmitters in check, this post isn’t for you!
I’ve seen it done in the movies and honest, swear on my grave, have always wanted to do that. My brain and my body feel feelings and energy like no tomorrow. So when the house is asleep I feel so much at peace. My body starts to slow down, my brain distresses (it doesn’t stop thinking… completely separate), my whole world is good. The problem is…
It’s ME, PHONE, ALL INCLUSIVE JESS TIME which usually doesn’t include stupid laundry or any other household chore that’s mundane.
I get tired… I get tired like everyone else so I start to go cross eyed, heavy eyelids, forget what I’m doing, entering a dream… it’s weird,
Tonight I don’t know what came over me but I wanted to do it! I wanted the laundry to be done for tomorrow?
If you are a parent and you have ADHD with a 70% chance of accurate medication management then maybe this is your norm? Me? Not so much.
So, as I’m doing the laundry, I come to find my husband isn’t asleep! He’s actually on his fricken phone! I’m like what? Here I thought I could surprise him when he wakes up? HELLO, if you’re not asleep get down here and help me! Isn’t that how it feels though? Right like, unless you’re sleeping, puking, or dead… if I’m doing something, you better be helping or doing something as equally boring.
Ok I woke up this morning, cleaned our room, showered, & problem solved by putting all of the stuff on my nightstand in a small box. Our son has eczema so we have a ton of lotions, diaper rash cream, my early morning meds… you name it. I even hung up my towels. It was like… the planets were aligned!
It’s nighttime now again and I have zero motivation to do anything. The towels were left in the dryer. Damn. You’ll have to wait and see what I decide to do. Am I going to surprise everyone, run down- fold- put away… or will I fall into a deep sleep, forget to set my alarm, wake up late and start the day off as I always do? Stay tuned,
