I am glad Hubbie's vacation is over. I don't think I could have survived another week. I spent all day today cleaning the house and getting clothes washed. Tonight I will have to go through a week's worth of mail and pay some bills. Hopefully, by tomorrow life will be back to normal.
I like routine - it allows me to take care of all the normal tasks needed to keep the household running smoothly without a lot of thought. When my routine gets interrupted as it did last week, something always gets neglected or forgotten. This morning I faced a pile of laundry, a dirty floor, dusty furniture, and bathrooms that needed scrubbing.
My Hubbie is not the type of guy who goes out and tackles projects on his own. He has to have a helper or partner- usually me. Last week he stayed busy with several projects around the house. That meant that I was busy with the same projects. When we would finally stop for the day, I was too tired to do any of my usual chores.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy his company and I'm thankful that he is willing to work around the house. I just missed having some time to myself. He will retire in two years. When he does, we'll have to find a way to give me time alone for the things I need to do.
