The moving’s done. The boxes are unpacked. The garage sale is over. I can finally have my “weekends” for myself!
So when Hubby came out of his office (our bedroom) and saw me laying on the couch in front of The Price is Right, he had to ask. “What do you think you’re doing?”
“I’m seeing how this feels,” I replied innocently. And lemme tell ya, it felt NICE. I don’t usually indulge in day time TV, or TV in general, but spoiling myself with some daytime couch time was pretty awesome.
When I began feeling guilty, I decided a trip to the store was in order. I was excited to get some candy corn and peanuts for my October indulgences. I mixed the two together, careful to get the correct candy corn to peanut ratio, and savored a handful of my creation. By day 2, they were gone. Apparently someone else in my family has my sweet and salty October addiction too! Back to the store I’ll go. But THIS time, I’ll store them in my underwear drawer. They’ll be safe there.
But first, I gotta get back to work. Got lots of Cardinals fans to cater to. (And a few players, I might add.) My commute is a few minutes shorter now that we’ve moved. So when I saw the signs last month to find an alternate route due to planned bridge work, I was bummed! There IS no easy alternate route, so my commute would be 20 minutes longer! When the day came for them to begin work, I decided to chance it. Good thing, because they hadn’t even set up the signals for the one lane traffic yet! That was September 19th. Soon new signs warned us the work would begin September 24th and to find alternate routes. Nothing. They were now going to try for October 1. Then the 6th. And at the end of the day on the 13th, the sign blinked mockingly that the bridge work would begin the 13th. Today. Missed again.
The suspense is killing me! I want to know when they’re going to start so I can determine how long it’ll take me to get to work. They’ve been crying wolf for a long time now. I’ve become so conditioned to their warnings, that if and when it finally happens, I’ll be shocked. And probably late for work.
I don’t know why I’m complaining anyway. I’m just as bad. I started this post LAST “weekend” and I’m just now finishing it up. I’m sure it was worth the wait. Ha! But at least it’s done and published, and I can check it off my list.
Now to get started on next week’s post….
