Service vs Work

Service vs Work

So… this morning I headed outside to mow the lawns.  If you have seen our backyard you know that this is no small task… it is kind of like mowing a park… and I don’t even have a self propelled mower.  I have noticed that when I go outside to mow my lawn it is sooo much hotter and I get soooo much sweatier than when I spend an entire day outside painting or working at another persons house.  I think it is like this in many areas of life.  It is always easier to clear the table and do the dishes, or to fix a broken toilet, work on a computer or do some yardwork at someone elses house.  These things that I despise doing at my own house I don’t mind at all doing for someone else.

I think this is the difference between service and work.  At home it is work… I don’t want to do it, I need to do it.  To do it for someone else changes the category from work to service…

For some reason I think Shelley would like to change the address on the outside of our house so that I can “pretend” I am doing it for someone else… and get some of the stuff done around here that has gone undone!

    This would explain why the paneling in my entry way isn’t finished yet after 15 years. Maybe I should think about changing the address on the outside of the house.
