spring is when I get jealous

Thursday, May 7, 2009

It is 71 degrees and sunny outside right now. I just came back from a meeting and a quick stop at Taco John's for a taco bravo and potato oles (I love me some oles). I do not want to be at the office. I do not want to be at my desk. I do not want to be looking at my computer screen.

Days like today make me wish for 2 things:
  • First, that I never went outside in the first place (that way I didn't know how nice of a day I missed).
  • Second that I didn't have to work. I suppose I don't HAVE to work in the sense of money (or maybe I do, we have just never considered it), but I do HAVE to work for sake of my own sanity. I made a terrible stay at home mom. I was "between opportunities" for about 6 months after Carson was born, and I stayed at home with him. It sucked. Me with no adult conversation makes for a really bad wife, mother and all around person.

Days like today make me jealous of "lunching ladies." They make me jealous of those moms who are able to run their kiddos around to all of their various activities all day long. Days like today make me jealous of folks who are out working in their gardens and enjoying iced tea from a sweating glass during a break (it's really humid here in Kansas). Give me 2 weeks, and I won't be jealous any longer. It will be 600 degrees and no one will want to step foot outside, much less eat anything...other that watermelon while standing in front of the fridge with the door open.

That's all for today, thanks for reading!

It was beautiful in Kansas yesterday and then there were tornadoes in Missouri. Probably not something of note to Those Who Live Here, but for this little east-coaster, it was something. The weather made me wish that I was able to be outside gardening too and not going in and out of meetings all day. And now it's raining.

I agree...I get super jealous! I'm not sure how I would have done as a stay at home mom when my son was little, but now that he's in school I think I would be awesome at it!

Oh, yes, I've been seriously considering being a kept woman, unless for the summer...
