Coming out of Retirement

I have really been enjoying my summer. We started it out by taking the best vacation ever to Savannah, GA, and we have kept the fun going all summer long. We have been having so much fun and all responsibilities have been pushed to the side.

Ok, not all responsibilities. As much as we wanted to, it has been nearly impossible to escape reality for very long this summer. With work issues, and *gasp* Leland’s parents creeping back into the picture, there really isn’t much we can do except pour another beer.

Yes, we go to work like we have to, but the laundry? It has been sitting in baskets all over my house for weeks. I manage to get the laundry clean, but only after we are all out of underwear, and it never makes it in the closet or drawers where clean laundry belongs. My dining room is a mess. I have an entire summers worth of mail piled up on the dining room table. I have coupons scattered everywhere because although I find the time to clip them, I just cannot break myself away from the daiquiris long enough to organize them. And we haven’t weeded our yard, flowerboxes or driveway all summer. Yes, I said driveway. It needs to be seal coated so badly be we haven’t done that either. My house is so unkempt that it is starting to look like a foreclosure property.

But my neighbors aren’t complaining yet so I don’t care. I am just going to continue having fun, because the work will still be waiting there for me when I am done. And now that I am blogging again, I have no idea when any chores will be completed. And that’s ok with me. I have a neat freak husband who will do it all when he gets overwhelmed. I just need to wait long enough for that to happen.

YAY so glad you're back! I kept thinking my blogger was messed up because i couldn't see any of your updates. Can't wait for your hilarious posts and hump day posts (of those are still on).

Welcome back! I was wondering where you ran off to.

And my yard sounds similar to yours too... Stick a bending over old lady in it, it's done!

Vodka Logic said...

I've heard Savannah is beautiful.

Your house and yard sounds EXACTLY like mine... there's too much vodka to drink to waste my time cleaning

So happy to be reading blogs again

It's too hot to be the anal weeder (I say this because my yard is in the same condition). Enjoy the summer and remember come November the weeds will be dead. :-)
