Put down those dirty dishes! Hang up your brooms! Today, April 7th, is National No Housework Day.
When I first heard this, I did a little happy dance around my kitchen.
Just a day to put my feet up and relax? Awesome!
There isn’t a single day in the entire year that I don’t clean something.
Even on my birthday, I do housework (I actually received a vacuum as a gift from my husband one year – don’t ask how that turned out!).
Mother’s Day? YEP. I cook, clean, do whatever is needed. So the thought of ONE DAY OFF sounds amazing.
But then I thought about it more…
What happens AFTER #National No Housework Day? I guess tomorrow will be #National Freak Out Because My House Is So Messy Day? Or #National Why Are The Kids Covered in Dog Fur Day? Or #National How The Heck Did We Use That Many Dishes Day?
Is it really a good idea to just ignore the mess? What will happen tomorrow is that I will have DOUBLE the housework. Unfortunately it just needs to get done. And if momma isn’t doing it, who will? Uh, I know that answer… me TOMORROW!
So I have decided it’s not worth it to celebrate today. I will continue on with my housework today.
But I did have a great idea. Since it’s also #National Beer Day today, I’ve decided that I will choose to celebrate that one instead! I think that’s a much better idea.
