Today I feel like rambling on...and on...and on. I work full-time, but part of that time is from home. Hence the title WAHC (work-at-home-chick). I'm not yet a mama, unless you count the sweet pup (which I do) or the step daughter (who is now out of the house.) For now, I am fine with chick, not mom.
I hear it all the time... "Oh, you don't work tomorrow." "Do this on your day off." "Why didn't that get done, you didn't have to work today?" I cringe at those ignorant comments. I want to punch you in the forehead when you come at me with such foolishness. Today though, I will let you have things your way. I will not work today. Nope. I will give you reason to ask why something isn't done. Because, folks, I am tired. I am tired of working nonstop only to be asked why I didn't do ANYTHING today. I did complete a few orders, answer some work related emails, put dinner in the crock pot, pay all the bills and I will do the dishes, but that is it. That is what I consider nothing for today. (For a moment, imagine what my "non-nothing" days consist of!) My goal today is to beat my record on Bejewelled Blitz on Face Book. Ha, ha, ha! Yeah, how does that sound? I am going to lay under the covers in bed for the better half of the day. I don't care what you say. If I get told that I do nothing, I am going to find out what this thing called nothing really feels like.
I am working on silencing those voices in my head that keep telling me to go sweep the floors or dust. I am not going to spend a few hours marketing Little Painted Polka Dots. I will not answer any work-related phone calls (or non work-related, depending on whose calling). I will not do laundry. I will not start any new orders for LPPD today. I will not traipse room to room, picking up all the mess leftover from the weekend. I will not feel even slightly guilty when you tell me that "nothing got done today." In fact, I'll probably laugh as I proudly tell you that YES, something did get done today.... I beat my Bejewelled Blitz record, FINALLY! Ahhh, success.
