I know there are so many things to do around the house (like that fridge I haven’t cleaned in… ever? Oops.) but there are so many things I’d rather do. Like read, or play with A, or heck, even get ahead on some work.
I’ve tried lots of ways to make them better. Giving myself a reward afterward sometimes helps, but I have no discipline apparently, and sometimes say “well, I did my best,” and take my reward anyway. Same with “prewarding” myself with the intention of doing the thing I don’t want to do later: it’s just not happening.
