So this is my first Monday without a job in a long time. Well, long for me. It's all relative, really. So how does one spend a thrilling Monday in the EJ? Coffee to start - I'm meeting some of the girls. I always laugh with my girls. End then to delve into the thrilling world of laundry! What shoes go with laundry? I can wear whatever shoes I want to now, without fear of playground wood chips getting stuck in my peeptoe, or a kickball throwing off my balance as I teeter on my stilettos around the play structure (see, I totally lied! Kickballs aren't allowed anywhere NEAR the play structure). Before I got my job I wore my hot pink patent leather heels for vacuuming (before you even think about it, I was otherwise fully clothed, thankyouverymuch)...but the thought of a different pair for laundry never even entered my mind. Shame, shame on me! There are stairs involved, 2 sets, so that has to be taken into consideration. And it's Spring now, of course, so that brings up a whole new style of shoes. Can't wear suede boots to do the laundry in spring. This takes some serious consideration...I'm going to have to ponder this one for a bit.
While I'm here may I also mention that I almost typed "style of shoe", then changed it to "shoes", for the same reason that I get very uncomfortable when someone says "pant", as in "this is a lovely spring pant". Ew....just typing it makes me squirmy. It's on my list. I have a list of words I don't like, but that list has been used against me in the past, so I'm not sure if I should reveal those blechy words here. Another thing to think about.
Oh, and today is World Autism Awareness Day. I had shirts made that I would have looked REALLY cute in, but it has TJ's name on it, and he started crying when he saw it and said it made him feel too different. I almost wore it inside out, only to flip it back after he got dropped off at school, but what kind of mother would that make me? So it's sitting upstairs. Anyway, we're aware.
