I can't be bothered.....

Are there any things that you are truly adverse to doing?
I don't mean like the dishes or the washing.

For example...

My car needs petrol.
I can't be bothered to go and get any. I realise it's expensive these days, but thats not even the point.
If I had a million dollars, I still think it's one of those things I would like to palm off to James.
It ALMOST scrapes into the 'blue job' category.  (you know, where there are pink jobs and blue jobs.... I consider car related matters to be a blue job.)

So, I'll drive around for at least a day (if not 2) without putting petrol in the car.
In my defense, it hasn't (quite) ever actually broken down.

Returning DVD's.
Actually hopeless.
I can't seem to process the idea of getting into the car (which is empty anyway) and taking them back on time.
It's just in the 'I'll do it later'
and later and later...

$16 in fees later and I wish I had just done it.
But, I won't.
James can almost guarantee it.

In fact if I want to really make him smile and freak him out at the same time, I can come home and tell him I actually TOOK the DVD's back on time.

But it's rare.

Posting letters.
I can't ever be bothered.
This is one of the reasons that we sent out our thankyou cards about 6 weeks after the wedding!

If it's a parcel I'll do it, as I have to buy the box, and postage etc...
But I have just become accustomed to putting letters that need to be posted into james's lunchbox in the morning.
That way they'll actually get posted.
- genius

Some of this stuff just shouldn't be a big deal but I just find my self putting off and putting off etc.

And to be fair, James is SO good at posting letters and filling up my car and dropping DVD's back..

There must be more of you out there??


  1. was having the petrol argument with myself on the drive home tonight. IF I were a kind person to myself I would have filled up tonight on my way home, even though I'm dog tired, so I don't have to run the risk of being late tomorrow morning where it's absolutely vital I will need gas as soon as I turn the ignition...
    so tomorrow I will run the risk of being late, probably have to park in the mall carpark again, possibly this time get towed instead of just a good clamping like I got tonight. Will we actually ever learn? I'm guessing no.

  2. oh and I had 4 kids so i could have 4 library cards. all of which are currently in debt. lots.

    I TOTALLY forgot to mention library books!! I've been barred more times than I have actually ever had books out. currently not allowed in the library. also killed Holly's card the same way. FAIL.
