A Request

Dear Laziness,

You are overwhelming me these days! I know it's cold outside, I know they are calling for snow, but why do you think you should curl up in my home? It seems you have sat in my comfy green chair, with a little hot chocolate and have settled in.

I have projects to finish, a house to clean, and someone needs to teach this kiddo to keep her tongue in her mouth. The poor kid wanders around with her nappy  hanging out begging for a pair of suspenders or something, but gosh, Laziness, here you are trailing behind me, slowing my every step down.

I'm not sure what to do with you, but I'm getting awfully close to making pals with you. I'm thinking it maybe is time to head into hibernation mode. Maybe I could give you a nickname and share a bit of foreign chocolate with you.

Maybe I could call you Relax or Rest and then I'd feel more chummy. Do you think you could come back when everything is canned and all the Fall cleaning is done? There is a neighbour momma around here who seems to be able to do everything, could you go visit her?

Sincerely,

Cheyenne

PS-Do you know how hard it is to type with mittens on? Could you go visit someone in the south and haul some sunshine back up here? I know this is where you insert the eye roll. Thanks a lot, Laziness, I'm just going to call you Lazy from now on, 'cause that's what you deserve!

That picture with her tounge ahnging out is adorable!
I agree laziness is trying to hang around here as well, but I keep trying to ban him, something about the cold weather must be bringing him on.

Snow? It's going to be 97 here tomorrow, lol.

Oh! I hear you , Lazy has a twin living here! I could easily stay snuggled in bed all day. The little one is too cute with her tounge hanging out, show her those pics when she is a 16 yr beauty (we know she will be,look at those beautiful eyes!)

Funny how that happens when it turns cold. Don't think you're the only sufferer, "Lazy" comes to my house too. But it sure is nice to have a nice warm home to snuggle up in isn't it?

well even though its not exactly cold here yet. Mrs. Lazy has hit my house!!!! I'm going back to bed :D I loved this post. You gave me my morning laugh!! :D thanks!!!

I love this! Boy, I hear ya. Loud music seems to help scare Lazy away, but he's a sneaky fatherless child, that's for sure. (Ha, I'm snickering at my non-swear swear.) I hope you find some inspiration soon!! Momma's who are tortured by Lazy tend to find things out of control, FAST. At least I do. And, that photo of little miss tongue is PRICELESS... too cute!

I would offer to come up and help, but you used the worst four-letter word EVER! Me and Mr. Snow are not friends - that is FOR SURE!

Super sweet picture of the baby!

Missouri Gal Nicole said...

Sure! I'll take your snow and send you the 90 degree heat we have here! It's so hot and sticky here.
And I think that little one with the tongue hanging out is too cute!

lol. I much prefer rest or relaxation!

Red said...

She is so adorable! Hope you find inspiration, & in the meantime enjoy those snuggles relaxing together too.

Grandma K said...

No, I don't think it is Laziness. It is FALL and I succumb to it and find a good book.

Sweet, sweet gal you have there! and a priceless picture!

ain't for city gals said...

I'm glad it is not just me feeling this way...some days I just say the heck with it and give in and enjoy it!

Jamie said...

Great post - I like "rest and relaxation" a lot better!!!

Jennifer said...

Very cute post! I imagine it's hard to be lazy with such an adorable little one running around the home. But I feel you, girl.
