When we were growing up, my mother would always bug us to do "first things first". Whats that supposed to mean anyway? When you're a teenager its probably homework before tv, shower before dinner, chores before going out and the list goes on.
My mother must have bugged us enough that her teachings are still ringing around my head today and I do do all "work" before play. (She reads this sometimes so...I'll have to be careful) So my question is what does "First things first" mean today? And, is it really the best approach to things?
For a few days now, I have procrastinated on doing the dishes and hanging up the laundry until after I've sat down and "wasted" some time on the internet. I find that I'm much happier to do the chores afterwards. Do a better job too because I'm not in a rush to take a break.
So, just as I'm starting to choose the battles with Aaron, I think I'll also take time to procrastinate. It just makes me a happier person to do "Second things First".
Edited 5 mins later to add:
Sheesh! What sort of example will this be for Aaron then? Oh no!....I should have thought of "Second things First" before he came along. Well, a few more days of it won't hurt.
