Work?!?!? WTF?

Can someone please explain to me why it is that work keeps getting in the way of me wasting time? I mean...c'mon, this is getting ridiculous? I thought we had a deal...you overpay me, and I look super cute in my suits every day. It really seemed like a win-win! I don't know why you had to go and ruin our arrangement like this...

Given the status of the labor market, I should stop complaining. That doesn't mean that I will, just that I should;-). OK, I will.

Guess what tomorrow is? Tinkerbelle's 10th birthday:-) Would you like to guess what I got her? I will give you a hint...it's a trip to Disneyworld:-P.

It is not lost on me that she is now just about the age that Munchkin was when she moved in with me (Munchkin was 10 years and a couple months). Fortunately, I don't see any set of circumstances in which I have to take this one in, too... So that's good;-). One teenager at a time, please.

It is amazing how different they are while still being sort of similar. They have the same temperament and the same kind of outlook on things, but they are really, really different. Honestly, though...the difference is in Munchkin. Tinkerbelle is a pretty normal girl of her age, and thinks and acts like most fourth graders do. Munchkin just works a little differently than other kids...and having the other little one to compare her to really makes me appreciate those differences.

OK, I am sort of rambling...and it has taken me like three hours to write this, which is a good sign that I should be concentrating more on the work that is distracting me;-).

Indeed feel blessed that you're employed as opposed to the many who aren't and are very worried ... Rambling; that's half the fun !!

I can relate! Sometimes it is so hard to get anything done. And I don't even look cute in a suit. At least you have that!

Aww my sister was eleven when I started looking after her. It's a great age for girls, I think. They haven't hit that awkward teen stage yet but they're not as babyish anymore.

Happy Birthday Tinkerbelle :)

As the title of my blog kind of indicates, I totally relate to you and your idea of how work gets in the way of free time.

Darn work and how it steals hours from us each and every day!
