Do you sometimes feel like your laziness is rewarded?

Last Sunday, for example, I thought several times about how I should definitely water my plants outside because they hadn’t been watered since Monday. But, eh, I never did. And then it rained for a couple of hours. Brilliant.

Also, our lawn is dying because it’s been so hot and dry and Bart and I keep talking about watering it. But then, it poured for about an hour today. Good thing we didn’t water it over the weekend.

I think I’m going to try this with the dishes. . . .

    You already do this with the dishes, Sweety.

    Haha… love this post. You are totally hilarious, Janssen! I like Bart’s input as well. I’ve definitely tried that with the dishes and it has yet to work… unless you count Aaron doing them as a reward for my laziness. 🙂

    I’m going to try this on the bathrooms too.

    So, apparently your friend Bethany deletes comments from strangers or something? Anyway, the Wii’s Virtual Console has about 50 NES games.

    If this works I am sending my dishes to your house!

    As usual, I’m late responding.

    Sorry, but the only way out of doing the dishes is to throw them away.

    Here’s a trick I discovered after the dishwasher died: Wash the big and/or greasy grimey stuff first, dry them, and put them away. Then, washing the plates, glasses, and utensils is a snap.

    (This is completely backwards of what I was taught, but most of us don’t have to pack in the water and/or heat it on the stove anymore.)
