Occupied By Thoughts

Lately now, I feel like Norma Rae, when she tells her husband, who complains about her busy schedule, that he can have sex with her while she does the dishes. Except I am not a labor organizer, I don’t have a husband, and I really need to concentrate when I do the dishes. I like a busy life, but I’m beginning to wonder if I’m not just spinning my wheels.
