Do Stuff You Hate

Because, in the words of Calvin and Hobbes (and Calvin's dad): "Being miserable builds character."

Today I worked outside in our jungle yard. When I could take no more of that I left Prince Charming hacking at weeds taller than our oldest child and came inside. Certain legitimate plants my have paid a high price for his weed destroying antics. But don't criticize the one who does the work, right? So (after getting dirty, itchy, and tired myself) I left him outside in his endeavors.

And then I ironed. Clothes. For an hour.

So, I can safely say that today I did two of my least favorite chores. My character is growing already. For those of you who might be tempted to comment that I'm already quite a character I say nothing. But you can imagine me sticking out my tongue at you.

I know how you feel. I just spent all of Saturday finishing up projects that I've put off for months because I just don't enjoy them enough to complete them.
