Don’t you hate it when your mate comes home from a hard day at work, or your boss comes up to you and says those words? Moms do this to their kids all the time.
When it happens to me, my mind immediately goes blank. I am programmed to answer something, so I do a quick mental scan. I made the bed, I think. Maybe my husband did it while I was typing on the computer. I posted two articles, one for Manny and one for me. That’s fun stuff, so it doesn’t count. I shouldn’t even mention it.
Kalev and I walked two miles. That’s impressive. I made lunch. It was good, but hardly noteworthy when expounding on what I “did.” Here’s the most time-consuming, “I answered emails.” Again that activity falls into the ho-hum category. Let’s see, I edited an article or two for “What’s Happening in the Foothills.” That might be impressive if it hadn’t taken me two hours to tweeze out 75 words with the help of a Style Writing program that keeps shutting down. I posted the assignment for my writing class online. My last assignment didn’t get award-winning stars and A+ remarks from the teacher, so that took a while, too.
So when my husband came home and asked me that intimidating question, I knew he would not be overly impressed with my morning’s work. But now you know, I worked really hard yesterday morning, and accomplished quite a bit. It just didn’t look impressive.
What did you do today? (hehe) 🙂
