Being a SAHM mom is beyond exciting, less than sexy and sometimes goes without reward. If there's something on the floor that needs to be picked up I swear everyone in this house will step over or around it before they bend over and pick it up themselves. Why? Is it beneath them to do such a menial task? Perhaps I've spoiled them and they just know I'll do it. I wonder what would happen if I didn't. I wonder what they would do if I quit my job?
What does my job entail? Well, it's Monday so that means the house gets cleaned top to bottom, clean sheets, all laundry is washed, dried, folded, and waiting to be put away, everything is dusted, vacuumed, mopped, all bathrooms are scrubbed, windows cleaned etc., etc., etc. But you know what, today I don't feel like going to work. It's a beautiful day and I think I would much rather sit in the sun with a good book than scrape dried who-knows-what off the back of a toilet tank.
I need a break too every once in a while plus the vitamin D is so good for me. I do need to get some more color, after all I head off to seeIA,JK,Viv,Becca, Jen, and Conniein just 16 days and the Floridian cannot be the transparent one!
Sadly, doing all of the above is my job. As unfabulous as it can be at times I am beyond blessed to have been able to keep this job for almost 18 years. It is a job I love and one that I'm pretty good at it so maybe I'll make a compromise and kick it into high gear, get as much done as I can before lunch and take a 2 hour break in the sun before finishing. Sounds more than fair right? Who wants to play Words With Friends, Scrammble, share Instagrams or Tweet today between 12-2 EST? Look for me I'm seriouslyshawn and I'll be free!
Happy Monday friends whether you're spending it at the office or scrubbing crap off a toilet make it a good one!
