I’m abandoning the blog once more, but only until Monday. While I can’t explain why or where I will be, just know that I won’t be home, nor will I be logging into WordPress.
How’s that for mysterious?
In my absence, I’m leaving Scott with a brief list of things that need to be taken care of before I return. Some I haven’t had time to do myself. Some I’m too lazy to do myself. But with most of these items, I’m simply not domestic enough to do them myself. (Thank goodness I “married up” in the cooking and cleaning department.)
The “Complete before your wife returns or she will threaten to microwave your favorite deodorant and create a huge mess in the process when she gets home” list
(That list title is a joke. Mostly.)
Make and can salsa
Our neighbor gifted us with tons of fresh tomatoes from his garden, and they need to be dealt with. I’d do this myself if I weren’t so afraid of giving myself Botulism in the canning process.
Watch Season 1 and 2 of House of Cards
There’s no way in Hades I’m having another Frank Underwood marathon all by my lonesome.
Our apple tree has been harvested, and we’re up to our eyeballs in spoiling fruit. Wine seems like the perfect way to use them all up. Also? Katrina be thirsty.
Pick up the Kitchenaid
Our standup mixer broke down earlier this year, forcing yours truly to mix all of her baked goods with –gasp–a wooden spoon! (Cue the violins.) We took the mixer to a repair shop in St. Paul, who called us a few days later to let us know that a mere fifty bucks was all it would take to get the Kitchenaid back in tip top shape. The embarrassing part? We received that call…oh…about four months ago.
Remove our dock from the lake
I’d do this myself but…oh, that’s right…I really hate being waist-deep in frigid lake water while lifting heavy stuff.
Aren’t you so glad you’re not married to me?
