The Letter of the Law

Ok Ok  I have followed letter of the law.  There are things Dragon wants done every day and I get it done.  Bed made, house company ready, sink empty and bathroom cleaned.  I am not to do all of this myself but I am to make sure it gets done.

Yes, I have followed the letter of the law but not the spirit of the law.  Not his intent.  I run around the house in my PJs most of the day.  Our morning are taken up with school work.  This is my excuse for dishes in the sink and leaving the laundry unfolded all day. What about the bed?  It stays unmade until he pulls the truck into our drive way.

I admit it.  I am a lazy brat.  The weight of depression is still there.  I have not adjusted to our new life outside of the military yet.  He works longer hours now than he ever worked active duty!  I miss him.  Now he comes home tired and frustrated.

I am doing better than I was.  Now I am going to do one better.  When I get up to fix his breakfast at 5:30, I will be dressed to shoes for the day.  The bed will be made and I won't shut myself away in there for the day.  One thirty minute name as required by Dragon and that is it.

I can do this.
