Tonight, I need to pick up the clothes someone left on the floor, restock toilet paper and paper towels, stack the magazines lying around, feed kibbles to the kittens, turn off unneeded lights in unused rooms… write, iron, hang laundry to dry, fill the dishwasher, wash the frying pan, exterminate fruit flies, close windows, brush teeth, pick an outfit for tomorrow, pick the kids outfits for tomorrow, and get the kids backpacks ready for school tomorrow.

But instead, I’m browsing eBay searching for lamps, loft beds and electric fireplaces. I don’t think I need any of those.
