It's not that these chores don't need to be done. It's that I will be attending the junior high volleyball regionals to support the hubby coach and the area girls I've been watching all season.
I don't think anyone who knows me would call me a slattern, in either sense of the word. (Alas, one sense is "slut.") Perhaps, yes, some would call me slovenly or untidy in appearance, due to my layered lackadaisical fashion sense and hair in a perpetual scrunchee.
Once, for about 4 years, I wore the same golden suede boots everywhere. They were comfortable, OK?
Those of you who have read the Bridget Jones books will recall that Helen Fielding uses "sluttish" to mean careless washing up (see the Wikipedia article!). But when I do wash up (the dishes), I am careful, and when I do do the laundry, I fold it straight out of the dryer so it won't just lie there and wrinkle. (I just wanted to say "do do.") Anyhoo...
Saturday was named, not for slatterns, but for Saturn, pictured in a somewhat slatternly stance above.
