If you make your family dinner you will go to your fridge and realize you have 5 lbs of hamburger that needs to be split up and put into the freezer.
If you have 5 lbs of hamburger in your fridge that needs to be split up and put in the freezer you will take it out and realize that the juices from the meat have spread all over your shelf in your fridge.
If you realize that the juices are all over you will take the shelf out of the fridge and realize that the box of cookie dough will need to be peeled off the shelf because the cardboard and juices have become a sticky mess. You will also realize you have no space in your sink because no one has done the dishes.
If you start doing the dishes so you can clean the shelf, your children will decide that they need help RIGHT NOW making a valentines box for school.
If you tell them they will have to wait, they will whine at you the whole time you are filling the dishwasher and cleaning the shelf and putting the meat into the freezer.
If you do all this you will then realize that you need to make your family dinner.
Maybe giving cookies is a better idea!
