The Wednesday Restoration Trick

This is a choose your own adventure tip:

If you're a bit frazzled, go to #1 below.
If you're feeling energetic, go to #2 below.

1. What really, no, really, absolutely must get done tonight? Maybe those dishes from Monday? Maybe mail that bill? But how long will that take? Not so long. So, do that which must be done and only that. Then be a big lazy slug and enjoy the hell out of it. Read a trashy novel in the bath, play video games, go watch cartoons, whatever is unproductive. Let it wind you down and get a good night's rest. Thursday & Friday will go better.

2. Whirlwind cleaning dervish! What can you do fastest that will make the place look best and stress you out less when you get home from work tomorrow? Put on some perky music and round up the stuff that's where it doesn't belong. Get the piles put away or at least made more neat. Then find one icky chore that ya don't wanna do but you'll wanna do even less on the weekend and knock that sucker down. Take a shower before bed and go to sleep with the pride of a job well done.
