the speed of time

We, as a society, really need to come together and work for 4/10 work weeks. You know, getting rid of the whole '8 hours for work, 8 hours for play, 8 hours for rest' schedule that runs our entire lives because it's truly a farce. My 8 hours off of work are usually designated not for 'play' but for exercising, getting to and/or from work, cleaning my house, cooking my meals, getting ready... etc. etc. There's just not enough time for everything! I would soo love working a 10-hour day, 4 times a week. I just wish we as a United people, came to this conclusion.
^Saturday night baby shower prepping

I say this because this weekend was busy, so very busy! And as great as it was, it left me with noooo time to take care of anything else until it was Monday morning again and work and responsibility were slapping me in the face. Literally, because Chandler associates my alarm with a morning walk now and starts slapping his paw on my face bright and early. And this Monday morning I was STILL sick from a bug I got this weekend. Oy, Coughy & Tired would have been my names in Snow White in that moment (and right now, my name would clearly be "Whiney").
^Friday night was spent watching movies & continuing party prep

Illness aside, my Sister's baby shower went great and I'm planning to have pictures of the whole thing up on Thursday or Friday. After months of work and a weekend of designing, shopping, decorating and organizing for its Sunday arrival, I was really happy with the way it turned out. I must say the internet has made these things quite the breeze.
^These designs will all be explained soon. A British themed shower for a half-British Nephew comin' on board.
So anyway, back at the normal work week vibe and trying to cure this tickle in my throat so my colleagues don't hate me as I cough to the beat of 'Stayin' Alive' for eight hours. Perhaps in this instance, it's good we don't have ten hour work days.

Hopefully you shed the germs and Whiny self soon lol I agree with that, it would be soooo much better. I actually worked a 4 day work week for years, so much nicer.

I wish I could work 4 8 hour days but still get paid for 5! Haha! Love the shower theme. I lived in London for a semester and LOVE that city!!!

For some strange reason, mainly being tipsy and tired, i had to read 3 times that part where it said Chandler does this and that and his paw on your face. Again, i forget at times you have a doggie and I was like: Your husband does what now?

Ever since that post where you mentioned making out with your dog and cuddling with the husband, I got my wires crossed and whatever. Ha :)

But ok, it's all clear for the time being. Until a next post where I will surely need clarification.

Don't blame, I'm a man. You know we don't ask for directions, nor we understand crap until it's repeatedly mentioned, like puppies. But with us, it usually works with smacking upside the head and eye rolling from your gender.

@Porkstar haha, I meant just letting the dog kiss me! :) Lots of people do that!

@jodi- ha! smart.

@steph & pat: Yes indeedy!

Half British as in, the daddy has an accent??? I wonder if that means baby will get a slight hint of an accent too??? Hmmmm hahaha

Glad that the baby shower went great!!! And, I would totally sign those papers for the shorter work weeks. I need more time for fun too!! :)

Elle Sees said...

I've often said that if I ever run for president i will campaign on proposing three days weekends. I'll win in a landslide!!

I am SO with you on transferring to a 4 day/10 hour work schedule...I feel like I would be so much more productive in all areas!
