What do you mean, game over?!?
Oh, it’s not like I’m lacking for things to do.
Quite the opposite, actually.
But you’d never know it with the way I’ve been procrastinating.
I’ve got laundry to sort through.
A dishwasher to empty.
Meals to prepare.
Floors to vacuum.
And an assortment of other tasks I’m legitimately forgetting…
Or choose to forget about.
It’s been raining every single day this week.
No sun + tons of rain = no motivation.
I’m behind on everything.
So why not take a break and play a round of Candy Crush?
Or maybe a few hundred rounds, while I’m at it.
I hadn’t played Candy Crush in years.
Yet, this week, I completed over 290 levels in just 3 days.
I don’t know whether to be proud or ashamed for allowing myself to get sucked into such a major time drain.
I might be in need of inspiration.
Or a nap.
But look at all those pretty colors!
It’s candy, for goodness sake!
Besides, the game’s claim of “swiping stress away” is too appealing to pass up.
I just earned infinite lives!
For two hours only!
Must. Keep. Playing.
It’s rather unfortunate that domestic pursuits don’t motivate me more.
The curse of being an Undomestic Goddess.
And every level successfully completed rewards me with a declaration of Fantastical!
Which should, theoretically, make me feel good about myself.
Except for the fact that I can’t help but question the actual existence of any such word.
When all five of my lives are used up, it’s time to do…
Well, whatever it is I’m supposed to be doing that I clearly would rather not be doing.
Sure, I could buy more lives.
But I won’t.
The offer to buy a little extra “help” is just not that appealing.
I’m not necessarily arguing the fact that I need help.
But my guess is that isn’t the kind of help I probably need.
I rarely download games to my phone.
But I do still have a few on my Kindle.
I’ve been reading the same page of the same book over and over for the last two weeks on that very Kindle.
And Candy Crush was just kind of there…
So I’m too distracted for distractions like reading.
But I can play for hours on something that’s meant to be played in short bursts.
Suffice it to say, my priorities are sorely lacking lately.
But I did manage to put up Halloween decorations.
And I also walked the dog during a lull from the rain.
So I managed to do something productive.
Oh, and I also scraped a sticky, melted wad of cherry Starburst out of the dryer.
I may not excel at domestic things.
But at least my problem solving skills are still intact.
Maybe Candy Crush is good for something, after all…
~Happy weekend, friends! So… What’s your guilty time-wasting pleasure? Haha!~
Swipe the stress away, huh? It’s not like I was doing anything productive, anyway…
