It is Sunday evening. You are exhausted since you have had a weekend full of activities, maybe even too many activities. You still need to prepare things related to work/school as you have been procrastinating throughout the entire weekend… You do not have the energy to get up and do the laundry that has been staring at you since Thursday afternoon.
