Pa, why is Ma curled up in the corner of our little house muttering "so much work, so much work, damn kids, so much work...?"

Work is seriously cutting into my leisure time these days.

I don't know where you all find the time, inclination or energy to:

a) Have a life that includes things like "activities" and "socializing" and "bathing".

b) Wake up before the crack of 9:00.

c) Have time to read literature that doesn't have the word "Interview", "Vanity Fair" or "Dairy Goat" on the cover.

I mean, come on. I so miss the sweet days of this past marginally-employed summer of mine. Remember when I used to have time to write about things like sniffing my kitchen clogs, bloaty gassyness, vaginal itch creams, sadomasochistic boot-lickers, and drunk camping while eating penis cake?

Yeah, I miss those magical Little House on the Prarie-esque moments too.

Maybe tomorrow, my probably-migrating-south-to-more interesting-pastures little songbirds.

I like being a little songbird.

Sounds like it's time to give up sleep. I know at first it'll be difficult, but I'm sure you'll get used to it. I know I have.

Holy hell I follwed those links and read about your clogs, your hatred of Vagisil, and the bootlicker and I can honestly say that I still like you. Now what does that say about me?

Don't feel bad...I just posted three times in two days (GAH! WHA!? yep. THREE TIMES, baby!) and nobody's come over. Okay, not NOBODY...but where the hell is everyone? Are you holding them hostage with this "WORK" you speak of? (haha, I should get to doing my own "WORK" before my "BOSS" needs to have another little "TALK" with me. Okay, I'm going to. Right now. Promise.)

Work sucks! Even now that I have a job I don't hate, it still sucks.

TOTALLY looking forward to a post on your birds! :0) (or was that just your sarcasm? Sorry, I'm a dorky birder.)

They're all coming south? Damn, now I have to clean my bathroom and spare bedroom.

One day when you're making 8 figures you'll look back at this busy time and laugh. Then you'll go count your money.

Well, I definitely headed south, but would much rather be having a Northerner's fall. Maybe then it wouldn't be hitting the lower 90's every day.

As for having spare time and energy, I've found the best way is to not have a job. It's (barely) allowing me to do all of the loafing necessary, and to have people draw on you with electric needles, yet still taking up too much time to really blog about it.

Sounds to me like you need a break. Only two more days till the weekend!

Rebecca said...

Have a break. Your little songbirds will remain loyal.

Stacey said...

Oh how we miss those posts. Doesn't it suck when work gets in the way of blogging. I used to be obsessed w/posting each day. Yep...not so much anymore. Can't hang.

We'll wait. We think you rule enough to do that for you.

Did you ever watch Highway to Heaven? I loved that show when I was little. Aw, Michael Landon.
