Is This Lying?

So yesterday my girlfriend asked me to wash the sheets after I just finished a load of laundry (Last time I brag over text about doing laundry because it results in being asked to do more laundry) For context, she works on the weekends from 8-4. I responded back via text "I will soon", but wanted to go for a run before I did more laundry. Well, I ended up running about 4 miles and was pretty gassed when I got back. I made the bed and cleaned the house a little, but by the time my girlfriend got home, I still had not gotten around to doing the sheets. However, she comes in and gleefully runs up to me, kisses me, and says "Thanks for doing the sheets and cleaning up I love you". I responded I love you too and proceed to laugh because I did not do the sheets I just made the bed. So my question is do you consider that lying or is this a case of ignorance is bliss?

No harm, no foul and IMO, you passed the vibe check. โœ… ๐Ÿ˜‚

however, there is a learning moment here. You know that if you do a few of these things without being asked then you get more than a few Brownie points. Use this knowledge young padawanย
