Sometimes you have to take a day off from work to take care of chores that you just don’t have time for. Today was such a day.
I took our sleeping bags, curtains, slip covers, and a pile of blankets to the laundromat (knitting on socks while I waited), then I filled up the gas tank, took the truck for its emissions test (passed), dropped our computer off at the repair shop, went to the bank, and picked up cat litter – all before noon. After a few hours of cleaning the house, I took the kids to the mall to get some clothes they needed. Soon it’s off to book club, and then packing up a soap order.
For having the day off, I am exhausted.
