There was a pile of leftover Christmas gifts on a small table. I decided to take care of them – throw out the boxes and trash, and put away whatever items were left, including a thermometer that needed it’s batteries activated.
I took the thermometer in to the kitchen and set it on the counter. I went to the bottom “junk” drawer to find the little tiny screwdrivers. Asked P-Man if he knew where they were. While he was thinking, I decided to empty the junk drawer to see if I could find them. Once the drawer was empty I decided to throw away the “real” junk and organize the rest of it. Then I had to do the other drawers – which included the silverware and cooking utensil drawers – which entailed filling and running the dishwasher.
Then P-Man located the screwdrivers (in a completely different cabinet) and we proceeded to activate and hang the thermometer.
2 hours after starting the process.
And I wonder why I don’t get more accomplished every day.
