Yes, I've been bad [Aug. 24th, 2005|10:58 pm]

I haven't posted very much the last few weeks. I think I need a vacation. I realized today that the only time off I've taken this year has been to stay home sick, or stay home with a sick kid. It's almost September, and I haven't even taken all the unused vacation time I rolled over from last year.

Lately, I've had an overwhelming desire to just stay home. To get my house in order (not like that's ever going to happen; I'm convinced this house creates its own dirt and thrives on disarray) and spend my days preparing healthy nutritious meals my family will thank me for cooking and sew badges on Middle Daughter's scout vest and alphabetize the canned goods in the pantry and write beautiful poetry while The Boy naps.

I wish I could feel as excited by alphabetizing the canned goods in my pantry. I think I got frustrated and discouraged a few years ago, when I alphabetized and the next week they were in disarray again. It always makes me depressed to think about my canned goods.

It's not the canned goods that depress me...it's the weevils in my pasta. We are plagued.

No no no. Canned goods are not to be alphabetized but CATEGORIZED.

I hear you. Some days the idea of being a kept woman to do nothing but care for family and home are so appealing....*sigh* for me it's just a case of the grass looking greener over there than here.
