Starting next week, I'll have a ton of work coming in every week for the rest of the year. But this week there was very little work, so I took the opportunity to get some long-postponed chores out of the way.
We took two big boxes of professional clothing to the thrift store -- dresses and suits that could have been Seanette's if she had ever gotten the basic housecleaning caught up enough that I could ask her to spend a couple hours doing something non-essential like helping me clean out the closet. She chose not to do the basics, so she lost out on the opportunity to have a full office-job wardrobe for free. And has only herself to blame.
Stubbornness and slothfulness can be costly in the long run. You never know what bonuses your employer has in mind for a job well-done.
Now I'm going to spend the weekend enjoying a last burst of stitching, because once the work starts coming in, there won't be much time for that. Fortunately, I'm almost done with my Christmas presents.
