Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

A quiet night

So far.

We're quietly sitting in the family room, using our individual laptops. I caught up on LJ while canuckgirl was lying down to appease her tummy. The boys are due back anytime now from trick or treat. Aren't we clever about using using our alone time?

Dinner was Campbell's Baked Dinner, with Pepperidge Farm Cheese Bread and Mrs. Smith's Apple Pie. Go freezer go! Tomorrow I cook from scratch.

I have read the paper today. I haven't caught up the dishes or mail. Laundry is mostly done, with some towels to be folded and some linens in process. Coupons are caught up until Sunday.

We had some nice cuddle time between school pick-up and dinnertime, but I'm currently quite annoyed with my body. Nothing like entertaining an out of town SO when Auntie Flo insists on being there, too.

There was only time for a shortish cuddle on the couch this morning, between getting home from Boo! Sing and leaving for carline.

Boo! Sing was fun, but Tigger was damn hard to spot on stage. His class was blocked at the back of the stage, and his costume this year (as Blade) is black pants, a black t-shirt, a black leather coat, and sunglasses. (The weapons: a wooden sword and daggers, and a foam Blade™ throwing blade had to stay home from school.)

Yesterday after bowling, I dropped off the school picture orders, which were late. I've managed to vent enough at my mom and then in more dilute versions to Sydb and Canuckgirl that I don't feel the need to rant about it here. Suffice it to say that I screwed up, and have to pay late fees and wait longer for school pictures to come back. But, on the bright side, having to drive to the studio meant that I finally got around to ordering class pictures from last year. We never got our act together to do it last year, at all.

I also picked up the bread for bread bowls for tomorrow night's dinner.

At home, I had time for lunch, and to sweep the kitchen floor. I think sweeping helped with the need to vent, too.

I had a varied list at work. The first two queues were really short, so I not only indexed and double-keyed them, I image processed them (giving myself a longish break ;). The next two queues didn't have double-keying, and looking longish for image processing, and then I finished the evening out with a longish queue that double-keyed much faster than I was expecting, so I got my whole list done by when I wanted to leave the office, which was 11:32pm. Even after taking a 50 minute dinner break.

To summarize, I used up all the work, and then left on time to pick up Canuckgirl at the airport. Her flight landed on-time, deplaned its passengers somewhat slowly, and then took "forever" to get the luggage out.

Is there anything with your bookkeeping that I can help with? I know that kind of thing is mostly something you have to do personally, but if having someone sit down with everything and sort into categories, throw out envelopes, etc. and get it in order would help, I could do that. I suck at housework, but sorting bills/paperwork is actually something I don't mind doing, once I sit down and actually do it.

I would love help at this.

And you are unique in offering.

I can even see that you would be a positive help with it, and be grateful for it. See me not pooh-poohing the idea.

The only problem is, we live 90 miles apart, and I'm having trouble figuring out when you could help me?

Thank you for offering. :)
