"Parkinson's law is the adage that "work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion""- This is so true. Sometimes, I can get a few hours of chores shoved in 20 minutes. Mind you, my work is not as good if I rush through things but in a pinch, I can manage to get a house picked up and sort of clean. Maybe it has more to do with what is acceptable for time spent?
Parkinson's law also applies to money. If you are terribly broke, you will find a way to make it on very little. But the more money that we have coming in, we stop being as frugal(the broke mentality leaves) and we shop according to what we have coming in.
Now enter the dreaded Murphy's law(anything that can go wrong, will go wrong). So life makes a mess of things and we are stuck sorting it out. And it usually means that our checkbook is going to take a massive hit along with the Kleenex box.
Now for Sonya's law, bet you didn't know there was one of those? It's more like Parkinson's law and Murphy's law on steroids and then adding alcohol, mental illness and some fun but poor choices. Oh and too many cookies!
I think I may just be craving some control over my fat ass, the checkbook and time. I love the kids and we had a pretty good holiday but I just want to go back to normal. I'm a bit done with feeling out of control. Do you crave control?
Problems with the law,
