Last week I watched as my laundry pile grew and grew.
It was already past the point where I knew it would require two duffels. I’d be carrying two massive bags about 4 feet wide trying to walk down my narrow staircase and through the alley behind my apartment.
I dreaded that walk. I knew it would only be a matter of a couple of hours to get it all done, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it and the pile grew.
Returning to my apartment from a music festival in Louisville this weekend, I was first greeted by the massive, ever-growing pile of laundry. I had actually forgotten about it for a few days, but here it was – a reminder of my lack of willpower.
Today, I’ll have to find a way to lug three duffels to the laundromat.
When you put something off, it rarely becomes easier. It looms in the back of your mind hanging over you and becoming more and more intimidating. On some level, you start to make it sound worse in your mind than it really is.
And sometimes, it actually becomes much more difficult (or expensive).
