Oh, there goes the buzzer on the dryer. It can wait. But my new blouse is in there, and it wrinkles very easily. Iíll just quick grab it out of the dryer and hang it up. Well, I might as well take care of the rest of the clothes in the dryer while Iím here. Itíll just take a minute.
Okay, Iím ready. Hereís my favorite spot on the couch. The warmth of the coffee cup in my hands and the aroma is so relaxing. Oh no! I should have unplugged the phone. I better answer it in case itís an emergency. Be right back, Lord. Itís Amy and she does seem anxious. I better let her talk. Itíll be just a minute.
Okay, it was twenty minutes talking with Amy. It wasnít too serious of a crisis. I have to microwave my coffee, so Iíll be right back.
While my coffee is reheating, I should see what there is to fix for dinner tonight. Hmmm, I think the chicken sounds good. Iíll just put that in the refrigerator to begin thawing. What would be good with that? Iím looking for inspiration in the cupboards. Sounds like my coffee is done. Iíll get right to it, but itíll only take a moment to get some side dish picked out. I wonder if I have some carrots in the refrigerator. Yes, thereís plenty. Iíll just quickly clean them and have them ready to go. I wonder if that craft program is on. They have such cute ideas. Iíll just click the TV on for a moment while I clean these carrots.
I think I have a lot of the materials to make that craft. Iíll go check a moment and see. I do have a lot of it. The rest Iíll quickly get from the craft store. It wonít take long at all. My coffee is cold again anyway. Iíll just get another cup from the pot when I get back. Iíll be right back.
I knew that wouldnít take long. Iím already back. How great that these craft items were on sale! Whatís that? The school bus is outside. The kids are home. Oh Lord, I just donít seem to have enough time in the day to get started with our quiet time. Thereís just so much to do.
