So far today, I have…
Slept until 20 until 9 (I know this is not getting me any sympathy from any of you!)
Eaten brunch! (Yum!)
Gone to the grocery store! (So close to keeping it under $100! Damn you, 2 for $6 queso!)
Swept and mopped kitchen floor! (The Boy’s mom did this every day when she and Gene were married and I can’t understand how she did it. Just…err…floored)
Vacuumed the living room floor! (On the topic of “vacuum”, am I the only one who is surprised that of the 5 letters in that word, the letter that is duplicated is the “U”? English is a very funny language. Why not Vaacum, Vaccum or, hell, even Vacum?*)
Scrubbed the crud off the table on the patio! (So icky. I left a citronella candle on that table for YEARS and at some point, scientific events occurred and the next thing I know, bam! Wax on the table!)
(OK, after the vacuuming but before the scrubbing, I sat on the swing on the patio and finished a book, but still!)
And I guess Sunday Laundry is eternal, right? Mom’s probably doing hers right now, so I get the weekend laundry thing from her.
Oh, hey! Forgot the important part. I’m a genius because tonight’s dinner? “LEFTOVERS”. I made this and this for dinner last night (well, Gene grilled the pork) and there are tons of leftovers.
* If someone IMs you and his screen name is “Vacum”, you have my permission to NOT respond. He is a dirty man. I promise. Did I ever tell you about the time the GM from one of our locations sent me a work email from his AOL email address and it included the letters (egad) “C” “U” and… anyway. And I promise the address wasn’t BiznessAcumen@aol.com** or something that might have excused it. If your personal email address is pervy, then get a hotmail address that is innocuous. Seriously, what email address did he have on his resume??
(And finally, do you know how many tries it took to spell innocuous? Four).
** Although, that would make an equally hilarious email address. (I think I just scared off my last reader who is not related to me).
