Don't Want Tos

I have a bad case of the don't want tos...

My husband is at work. My younger child is at camp. I could be accomplishing all sorts of things. But, I don't want to. I don't want to wash the dishes. I don't want to wash and put away the laundry. I don't want to grade papers. I don't want to clean my house. I don't want to garden.  I don't want to cook. I don't want to do much of anything today.  I just don't want to.

Was it too much Christmas excitement? Has it been the stress of the past year?

I am tired. I am worn. I feel trampled upon and worn thin (though my hips would note otherwise).

Perhaps the moment of just being alone insists upon rest.
