Running away from responsibility

As a Forty Plusser I can’t stand it when people run away from responsibilities.  Don’t be a coward.  Just get a grip and deal what you have to deal with!  Be a good wife, be a good husband, be a good parent, be a responsible adult. Do what you have to do!  But hey, we are all human and sometimes I have this big urge to run away… no… sprint away from everyday responsibilities.  Full speed…

It is not one the “Wonders of the World”.  It’s plain common sense.  When you run away from all of your problems, you run away from yourself, and even right into infinitely more!  You must work from your downfalls.  You must accept your shortcomings and work on it.  Don’t pretend that reality doesn’t exist.  Change is hard.  When you are responsible you are reliable and strong.

But today is not that day.  I want to run away from responsibilities that are not fun.  I don’t want to deal with washing the dishes!  I don’t want to do the laundry!  I don’t want to deal with my poor exercise regime.  I want to eat unhealthy junk food that comforts my soul and not worry about poor dietary habits.  I want to ignore “Mommy do this, Mommy do that…”, I don’t want to answer the telephone.  I don’t want to engage in any arguments.  I want to ignore any demands that’s coming my way… sorry Hubby of mine…  Just for ONE day I want to escape from any issues.  You get the picture?  Today I feel like just doing nothing at all!   Just chill and forget about everything…

No need to worry.  I will be responsible again tomorrow. (Lol!).  Your duty to be responsible is more important than your right of freedom.

  • Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor after her husband has walked across it in his barn boots. —Hoosier Farmer

      Listen to this song

    • Song  – Bruno Mars  – The Lazy Song

    • The Lazy Song

      Today I don’t feel like doing anything
      I just wanna lay in my bed
      Don’t feel like picking up my phone
      So leave a message at the tone
      ‘Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything
      Uh, I’m gonna kick my feet up and stare at the fan
      Turn the TV on
      Throw my hand in my pants
      Nobody’s gon’ tell me I can’t, no
      I’ll be loungin’ on the couch, just chillin’ in my snuggie
      Flip to MTV so they can teach me how to Dougie
      ‘Cause in my castle I’m the freakin’ man
      Oh
      Yes I said it
      I said it
      I said it ’cause I can
      Today I don’t feel like doing anything
      I just wanna lay in my bed
      Don’t feel like picking up my phone
      So leave a message at the tone
      ‘Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything
      Nothing at all
      Ooh hoo ooh hoo
      Hoo ooh ooh
      Nothing at all
      Ooh hoo ooh hoo
      Hoo ooh ooh
      Tomorrow, I’ll
      Tomorrow, I’ll wake up, do some P90x
      Meet a really nice girl, have some really nice sex
      And she’s gonna scream out, “This is great”
      I might mess around and get my college degree
      I bet my old man will be so proud of me
      But sorry pops, you’ll just have to wait
      Oh
      Yes I said it
      I said it
      I said it ’cause I can
      Today I don’t feel like doing anything
      I just wanna lay in my bed
      Don’t feel like picking up my phone
      So leave a message at the tone
      ‘Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything
      No, I ain’t gonna comb my hair
      ‘Cause I ain’t goin’ anywhere
      No no no no no no no no no oh
      I’ll just strut in my birthday suit
      And let everything hang loose
      Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
      Oh, today I don’t feel like doing anything
      I just wanna lay in my bed
      Don’t feel like picking up my phone
      So leave a message at the tone
      ‘Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything
      Nothing at all
      Ooh hoo ooh hoo
      Hoo ooh ooh
      Nothing at all
      Ooh hoo ooh hoo
      Hoo ooh ooh
      Nothing at all
      Songwriters: Philip Lawrence / Ari Levine / Bruno Mars / Keinan Warsame
