What I Was Going To Do vs. What Actually Happened (spoiler: it involves a new to me chili recipe)

The title of today’s post could easily be the name of this blog but there’s no way I’m ever going to summon the energy or motivation to change the whole damn thing.

As is the case with many days, today did not turn out as planned.

The intent was to go to work, leave at 3, stop by my doctor’s to get blood drawn before the physical scheduled for next week, gas up my car on the way home, then relax all afternoon and evening. I wanted to paint my nails, continue watching season 5 of Jane the Virgin on Netflix, and go to bed early.

To anything, really.

I sat down to type so a post will go live tomorrow, but I’m exhausted and can barely think.

I don’t know how anyone is able to do more on any given day. I’d love to have a cleaner house and be more productive and such, but even on a good night’s sleep when I’m animated by work and hang time I don’t have the energy to do any more than work, eat dinner, and sleep.

Thank God I never had kids.
