It is Wrist to Forehead Sunday indeed. I return to work tomorrow after two weeks off. YES (with eyes rolling), I am GRATFUL I have a job and YES I am GRATEFUL I got a vacation, some people just can’t bear to hear anybody else complain about anything. Sheesh!
Be all that as it may, I need to make a blog post before returning to enjoying what is left of my vacation and my Sunday. I must say, I am really looking forward to next Friday, when it will really be Friday for me. This past Friday, it being the last “real” day of vacation (since I normally have weekend off) (don’t hate), it felt not as delightful as a Friday ought, by rights, to feel. But, again, be that as it may, on with the blog post.
I have long felt that there was no point in trying to get anything done on a Sunday. Some Sunday I lament this, others I embrace the uselessness. Today I actually did a few thing. I took a short run (which, truth be known, I often do, even on the most useless of Sundays), I did the dishes, I did a load of laundry AND folded two baskets of previously done laundry, I laid out three outfits for work (I need five to get me through the week, but I only have so many pairs of work pants) (and I’ve gained weight, so they don’t all fit), I put away the dishes after the air and patience had dried them.
That is more than I have accomplished on previous Sundays. However, as I typed in the preceding paragraph, I realized there are a number of areas where some reader (or the critics in my head) could judge me. For example, why was there a pile of dishes to do first thing in the morning? Why was there laundry previously washed but still waiting to be folded? Why did I not immediately dry and put away the dishes, and where do I get off counting that as another chore and not part of “doing the dishes” as a normal person would?
To any such judgmental sorts, I explain, “Shut up!” mentally thanking S.J. Perelman as I do so. I see now I am over 350 words. I call that respectable for Wrist to Forehead Sunday. I hope you’ll tune in tomorrow for what I hope is not too Melancholy of a Monday.
