Sleepy Sunday

Sunday, September 08, 2013

Almost nine on Sunday morning and I'm still sleepy. It's overcast outside and much cooler, but I'm told we're getting an inferno later.

I'm actually going to the laundromat today while I still have only two loads to do. All of my lightweight loungewear needs to be washed. Yesterday I actually caught myself looking at some new ones online! I have four for summer and five for winter -- more than enough. I'm reminded of a great line from the wonderful show How Clean Is Your House. Delightfully tart Englishwoman Kim was talking with a woman whose house was strewn with everything imaginable (they actually found $1,500 in cash among the clutter!). The woman said she wanted to go shopping again. Kim gave her the fish-eye and said, "You have enough clothes. Do a wash!" So today I'm going to "do a wash."

Tomorrow I'm heading back to work. The next time I get a bit of a vacation is Thanksgiving. Oh well, it was great while it was lasted.

    I wish my MONEY would multiply as FAST as my DIRTY LAUNDRY! emoticon
There are only 2 of us here; but the dirty clothes pile up so damn fast, you'd think there were 10 people here! Won't even talk about towels & sheets! UGH! emoticon

    Ahhh.. I'm sorry tomorrow is a return to the grind for you.. emoticon Despite the mishap with the burns, it sounds like you had a really peaceful, enjoyable, joyful respite, and you know what? Thanksgiving emoticon will be here in just a couple of weeks! Think of all that Halloween candy in the stores right now, and even Christmas stuff at some places. Can Thanksgiving be far off on the horizon? LOVE How Clean Is Your House?! What fun that show is! Here's to a gentle, pleasant-as-possible re-entry for you... emoticon

    Thanks for reminding me. I have a couple more vacation days that I need to use wisely between now and the end of the year.

    So proud that you are off to laundry with only 2 loads. I think this says loads (excuse the pun) about your growing emotional healthy. Hurray!

    Good on you for doing the wash so soon! I always find clean clothes to be such a joy. I might need to get out more!
