Week in Review – A Clothes Call
Washed my clothes last night,
including what I wore to work yesterday.
Now I can’t remember what that was.
So, I’m pretty sure I wore the same shirt to work two days in a row.
I must be breaking my caffeine addiction,
because I didn’t get a headache until 5pm.
**Tuesday update – 3pm headache,
I think I’ll just keep the caffeine.
I looked at a house today, but I’m not so sure about it.
It’s a very good price, but lots of home-improvement jobs need doing.
But then I realized that I can not do all the projects there,
just as easily as I don’t do them where I live now.
A 19-year-old at work looks much, much younger.
I told her people said that to me when I was her age,
and I hated it.
I said she should embrace it, because
it really pays off when you’re in your 30s.
*sigh* And then they never say it again.
Speaking of getting older…
Invincibility isn’t a given for me anymore.
I know this because I’m going away for the weekend,
and I felt the need to tidy my kitchen.
Because I could be in a wreck or fall off the mountain…
This is what I think about now,
and people seeing my dirty house
when I’m gone.
It’s raining today…
enough that I need the wipers,
but not enough to keep them
from making that awful sound.
Spent a lovely day with friends old and new.
Why don’t I do that more often?
