It’s Hard Being a Grown-up

Now, I don’t mean to complain, but I’m gonna complain anyway: being this busy is tough! JO and I work about 70 hours a week and only have 1 day off a week. My precious little free time is often filled with mundane tasks like laundry, cleaning, dishes, and grocery-shopping (well, okay, I went to a bikram class today so life really ain’t that bad). Indeed, my grown-up responsibilities were staring me in the face this afternoon when I couldn’t get to the bathroom without stepping on someone’s – I won’t name names here – polka-dot boxers.

Hello, laundry.

Okay, okay, to be fair, I also stepped on someone else’s pink camisole.This afternoon  was spent dealing with all the things I let slide during the week. I also spent some time getting my bake on in the kitchen, which you’ll hear about tomorrow. All I can say is that during this endeavor, white chocolate chips presented themselves to me as manna from heaven.


Yes, these chocolate chips contain processed sugar. But, when you see what I turned down, you will forgive this misstep.

By the time 7 o’clock rolled around, I was ready to kick up my feet and relax.  I fixed myself a plate of pickles, carrots with tahini drizzle, and leftover steak from Tuesday’s dinner .  I poured myself a glass of Prosecco, put on my cozy pjs, and settled in to watch a cheesy movie that I had picked up from Redbox.



Now, after a few hours of relaxing, I feel almost, almost ready to face a 15 hour day tomorrow. Oy.

    Gah, chores … 😕 Just facing piles of laundry myself today, and my kitchen is stuffed with laundry racks. 15 hours sounds like a heavy day, I hope you’ll get through it well! And there’s nothing better than a glass of prosecco (or wine) in the evening, no? 😉
