Busier, it seems than normal, I mean the kind of busy where everything gets neglected in a certain order. My blog seems to be the first thing to suffer. Next is the house, shopping and other domestic duties. When it started to affect my working with A, I decided enough was enough and delegated some of the other duties out. I have an employee now. Odd.
Not much lifestyle stuff to report, nothing exciting aside from daily maintenance. In short our lives are kinda boring.
Next weekend tho, both Omega and I have cleared our schedules and are escaping to the coast to winterize the house.
I did spend a few uninterrupted minutes flipping through a Williams-Sonoma catalog today. I drooled over some pretty dishes...which I won't mention to Omega in any kind of formal way since he knows I have a dish fetish. And I'm currently banned from ever purchasing any kind of dishware for the rest of my life. Unless I get rid of the dishes I currently have. Yes, Omega found the secret stash of Fiestaware in the back of my closet. And no, he was not amused...I'm sorry the explanation that I have them sorta arranged by season didn't fly.
One thing that has really saved my sorry rear is that I'm carefully planning meals in advance, I make a list and shop for just those things and use up what I have before buying more. Omega's been happy with the meals for the most part, and I'm happy with the less hassled results. Over the weekend I check out the freezer and see what I can cook during the week, take things out as needed, and shop for the rest. It does add some extra shopping tho when we start to run low on items but it's not a bad thing. In fact it's been kinda nice not having to worry about it. I've even started doing a lot of double duty cooking, which I'm learning is easier than I thought it would ever be.
