Friday already?

Friday is my favorite day of the week - it's the only day I don't work, so I catch up on my housework....


So maybe Friday ISn't my favorite day of the week.

Flowers are springing up all over. Violets and forget-me-nots cover the ground. I mentined that to my husband as we took out the garbage this morning. His reply "Hmph." I guess men aren't into flowers. If I'd pointed out a wild boar in the garden, the enthusiasm would have been higher.

That's not the only difference I've found between men and women. :-)

I got home from work yesterday (it seems odd to say that - I haven't officially worked since the twins were born) and dishes were piled in the sink, and there were dust bunnies the size of tricerotops in the corners. Hubby (a neat freak) was walking around with a martyred expression. He did the dishes this morning, which is an indication of how bad things are. He Never does the dishes. (He irons, which saves him from any criticism.) I had to catch up on my work, so I was up until nearly midnight loading books into a database. Then, this morning, I discovered that nothing I did yesterday was showing up on the site & I have to start all over. I banged my head a few times on the keyboard and then decided to go to the pool.

Swim out the kinks.

Drown my sorrows.

I've learned to appreciat flowers and birds a lot more since Lana came along. But still, I'm probably more fascinated with say a vulture than a songbird.

Ugh, don't you just hate it when you put in all that work only to have to go right back and redo everything? that's happened to me before. Your day could have been worse, you could have been shook out of bed by an earthquake like I was this morning. Come on, an earthquake in Indiana? It's just not right.

Charles - you're definitely a guy, lol!
And Daisy - an earthquake???
Are you sure it wasn't one of your naighbors blowing up something?

Wild boar! Where?

I try those domestic chores, like cooking (not always with success) and I load the dishwasher and dry off the counters with zealous intent.

I do not iron anything however. I only wear unironed clothes.

And I'm nutters about backing up my files on photoshop! On that you can rely. There is no substitute for a good backup drive.
