Susie Homemaker........

I am not highly domestic by nature.

And those of you who know me are screaming in unison, "THAT IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!"

However, I can be compelled to do a few domestic chores, particularly if it allows me to put off doing other things that I really NEED to do. I haven't been very motivated to keep up with my online grading since I decided to resign. I'm not a short-timer, and it's not an indication of my bad attitude. I think it's more a result of my feeling hurt in the first place, which is what led to my resignation.


Hubby took the day off from golf today, so we were homebodies most of the day. (I tried to think of a nice way to tell him it was really, really, really, really, really okay if he went and played, but I didn't want to insult him. Besides, I may need that wild card in my pocket sometime in the future.)

I stripped our bed and the bed in the motorhome and put fresh sheets on both beds. I did a load of laundry and then decided to iron some khaki slacks to wear tomorrow. What? What happened to ironing them at 7:15 tomorrow morning? Then I ironed a few MORE pairs of slacks, some of which I will wear in the coming week and some I will wear NEXT week. Then I remembered I need to sew a button (or three, as it turned out) on one of my favorite pairs of slacks. Then I sewed a button (or two, as it turned out) on another pair. Then I remembered a pair of Hubby's golf shorts that had been on the dresser for........ I'm not going to admit how long...... and I sewed a button on those too. (It will still be shorts weather for him for several more weeks.) I worked on my quilt, and I put away some of Hubby's tools that were still in our bedroom after the renovations were complete. (I tried to outwait him, but I gave in. Gave up. Whatever.) I cooked some chili for dinner, which will also serve as my lunch tomorrow, so that chore is done too. I swept the kitchen, I moved a lamp, I put the sewing machine away, I moved two craft containers into my closet.

I did get around to SOME of my grading, and I DID manage to post a news announcement about this week's live online session. So I'm not a complete slacker.

Wow you were a busy bee today! Did you find my pile of ironing on your door step? ;)

I was sitting here looking at your slide show, and I think I will steal some of your photos, frame them and put them on my walls. What do you think?
