Somehow we all made it. It’s Thursday, and the long weekend has officially begun. On one hand, I’m really happy, since I’m exhausted from a week of handling paperwork and juggling errands and would really benefit from a good heap of rest; but on the other hand, I seem to follow the pattern of many of my fellow middle-classers around these parts in that I try to pack as much leftover work as possible from the week into the weekend so that it’s out of the way once and for all!
At last check, this is a sample of the to-do list for the weekend (between Sarah and myself):
- 9 shirts to iron
- 1 house to vacuum
- 1 bathroom to clean
- 1 website to put together
- 75-odd wedding programs to finish up
- 1 reception itinerary to put together
- 2 loads of laundry
- 2 loads of dishes
and that’s not including the things that I just want to do for the sake of doing them. But let’s not confuse this for complaining — it’s just the facts. There’s things to do. I’m going to want to elaborate on this at a later time, but I had a chat with a coworker today about the entire concept of the “middle class”. Those who live in constant fear of losing their foothold on life and becoming lower class, and feeling as if they’ll never make enough money to move up to the upper class. It’s this strange existence where one exists to work and almost everything else becomes secondary. I know this isn’t what I’d want for myself, but I know a good number of my friends who firmly believe that these are simply the cards that life has dealt them. Again, another topic for another time.
One thing I can say for sure is that I’m happy to see some more feedback from you readers 🙂 Whether they’re serious or in jest, I still read and reply to just about anything you send over, and I just wanted to say thank you 🙂 It definitely means a lot to me.
So if you have a post idea, want to make a suggestion, or just feel like ranting if I struck a chord, feel free to drop me a line.
However, for the time being, I think there’s only one more thing I wanted to say:
Thank Goodness it’s Thursday.
See you later, one and all.
