My Last Manic Monday

This is my last Monday on the Corporate Merry Go Round. Yee Haa! Probably won’t have a chance to get bored, so this picture is really a joke. I would never burn someone’s house down…on purpose. No really, I swear on my mother’s grave. Oh wait, my mother is alive. Ok well I wouldn’t anyway, you’re just going to have to take my word for it.

Had to drag myself out of bed by my hair this morning. Cool and rainy morning, a perfect day to stay in bed. But, must show up at work, go that last mile, tote that last bale, dig that last ditch…zzzz. Woops, dozed off there.

I caught a good wind over the weekend. Purchased some flowers for the pots out on the patio and actually planted them. Absolutely amazing. Last year I bought them and they died on the patio from heat stroke before I planted them. It was a rough summer.

Feeling a bit better about the actual act of not going to work. It occurred to me that because I was the oldest of 6 kids and a single mother at 17, my entire teen and adult life has been about bringing home the bacon. Taking care of people, kids, making money, making sure that everything for every one is taken care of because no one else is going to do it. I don’t know how to be any other way.

Now I know Mr. Husband is scratching his head in puzzlement. Huh, you seem to be quite ok with vegetating for days on end. A good imitation of a Boa Constrictor sleeping of that snack of an entire wild boar a week ago. Well Mr. Husband, you didn’t see the 48 years of my life before you met me. So there! I didn’t materialize on your doorstep out of nothingness 7 years ago. Not only that. It’s a full time job being your wife! I’d like for it to be my only job. I will enjoy.

    Loved this post, Mr Husband! LOL

    1. Mr. Husband loves it too. He likes to play master of the universe.

  2. Oh the prospect of not always being the one in charge! Wistful thinking on this end. But glad you’re getting to go there on your end. Yeehaw!

    1. Me too. However, I will have to keep it together to book travel 🙂

    1. Isn’t it evil? The look on the kids face is priceless.

  3. Oh yeah, you’re almost there – almost to the starting line! I can feel the tingle of your beating breath!

    1. I can barely keep it together. I want to run away so bad. I may start packing for my trip tonight!

  4. Good for you! Laughing at the concept of you pulling yourself out of bed by your own hair – the visual is disturbing!

    1. LOL, it’s especially hard to do with short hair.
