No Matter What, There Is Always Laundry

I got back from Mayberry around seven last night and spent a few hours cleaning house and unpacking. I have a lot more cleaning to do today but, I’m employing the Scarlett O’Hara approach to the situation and, I’ll think about that later.

Happily, and, contrary to my worst fears; Hugh did not kill my garden in my absence, in fact, it appears to have exploded while I was away and I am looking forward to harvesting a bumper crop of tomatoes, lettuce, arugula, peppers, cucumbers, Japanese eggplant and green beans this evening.

However, before I can do that, I need to head to the store to catch up on my work. Emily handled things in my absence but, it’s Monday and that always means a full day’s work.

I also need to catch up on the laundry because; my life is Just. That. Exciting.

It is also very quiet without the children who, as I’ve mentioned, are staying with my parents in Mayberry this week. I have no doubt they are going to have a lot more fun without me than I am without them since their days will consist of spoilage at the hands of my parents while my days will consist of cleaning the spoiled items out of the fridge. Doesn’t quite seem fair but, I guess that’s how it goes.

In other whiney news, I miss my girlfriends, already; we had such a good time at Stampede and, even though my sides are still sore from all the laughing, I would take an evening with them over a Monday at work any day.

Of course that could just be because I’m lazy but, whatev.
