More often than not I spend a good deal of the week wishing I could be outside to get just a little fresh air, and then when the weekend comes I'm so exhausted and the place is such a wreck all I want to do is sleep and clean. Neither of those two things occur outdoors, by the way. Another reason to justify life in a teepee. And now you know why I mentioned thinking about a maid, maid, maid in Friday's post.
Who's with me? (and yes I may or may not be mildly whining but am almost over it due to grateful to have work at all)
But what if they don't get in the corners like we do? What if there's dust left over? And what if our hand wash only items accidentally get tossed in the washing machine? (first world pains) Sometimes I'm my own worst enemy. I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't so I just get stuck at a standstill and do nothing. Damn you nothing! You're of no use to me!!
So I said to myself on Sunday, 'Today you are getting out of this house. Do not look at the computer. Do not trip in that pile of laundry. Turn your head away from the chair filled with need-to-be-folded clothing and for the love of God do not sit down in front of the television or it's going to be lights out on the ID Channel.'
*As I was giving myself this pep talk a high priority work email came through *the dreaded BING* and I had to work. Thereby defeating my moments earlier pep talk of not looking at the computer, but when you love what you do you do what you have to do. And in the end it's not all that bad except when the next day is Monday and it feels like Friday is prettttty darn far away.*
This was the weekend of approximately 14 non-working hours. During which time I washed a load of laundry, still don't know if it's in the dryer, and briefly escaped the maison with the Chef in order to get some sun on my face and slurp back a margarita just in time for Monday to chase me down.
This is life. The big ol' hamster wheel. Cling to the sides before retirement's here and all you have left to your name is three cents and an amazing fringy sweater. See if you want to live in teepee then. Not likely.

My own form is comprised of fringe with a side of turquoise and cats (not pictured here).
AKA security blanket.
These are a few of my favorite things (can you hear the tune?)
Cut to twelve hours later and we're in a torrential downpour. Upside? I don't wanna go outside now. Ha! Take that between the eyes Monday!
