I'm back from my friend's house. She left for vacation yesterday. I collected the mail and the newspaper and the phone book outside her door. Those chores were easy. Then I started my own chores. 3 loads of laundry (I brought my sheets and blanket), dyed my hair (good thing I didn't spill!), took a long hot shower, and raided her fridge. Don't worry, she knew I was going to do all of that...well, maybe not the hair dye part. I brought the half gallon of milk and 3 old oranges back home with me. They wouldn't survive the week.
I also filled up 20 old one gallon ice tea jugs, one 3 gallon camping container and one 5 gallon bottle for my drinking/cooking water. All of that hauling from the faucet to the truck made me tired. Then when I got home I carried them to the RV. Who needs a gym? If everyone had to haul their own water I bet they would learn how to conserve really fast!
I was tired after all of that hauling but then I had to put my laundry away and make my bed. How come I'm always tired when I have to make my bed? Now I am writing this post while I cook chicken and rice for my lunches this week. What I really want to do is make a rootbeer float, curl up on the couch and watch tv. But then I wouldn't have anything to eat for lunch and I would be tempted to buy a sandwich from Subway for $5 plus a drink, plus chips which is more like $8. I'll be good and make my lunch.
