Okay, so…shortly after I wrote my last blog, I started a load of laundry then sat down to drink my coffee – Then, Byron said, “Let’s go…” – and now I’m just getting home to stay at 5:15! We made some more decisions – kept Barry and Darrell from going to lunch at a decent time – and planned, strategized and discussed like it wasn’t supposed to be my boring, mundane Thursday!
So, now I’m home and there’s supper to make, homework to do, and all the chores still here to do that I was supposed to leisurely accomplish on my boring, mundane Thursday.
Honestly, though, does my family really need to eat, wear clean clothes, and become educated? What if a natural disaster occurred and I couldn’t do those things? Peanut butter and dirty laundry is good enough during the aftermath of a hurricane – where are the hurricanes, anyway? Maybe we’ve all grown soft because of our dependence upon modern conveniences! Of course, if I lost power, I’d have no Internet…Never-mind, I love technology!!!
So, I’m gonna make dinner, wash 42 loads of laundry, and be thankful for electricity.
How come even though I am a grown woman who is relatively educated and intelligent, my fourth grader’s homework can reduce me to tears? Just a question! I’m really not that bitter.
Gotta run – that healthy and nutritious, yet completely microwaveable dinner won’t “cook” itself!
P. S. Byron says no one will read my blog if I put Opera music on it…But, Pavarotti died today, and I need to go back to my roots – Rigoletto, btw, is the first opera I ever went to…I was mesmerized! Then came The Magic Flute with my little German “Oma” – again, loved it! So turn the volume down or enjoy…Whatever! Peace.
