Man. This staying at home stuff is some hard work. Stay at-home Moms should get a medal. Can I get a medal?
Some observations and things I'm doing:
- I'm somewhat watching over the construction guys who are rebuilding our porch (woohoo!)
- I've thoroughly cleaned the bathroom, cleaning the bathroom is usually something I don't do.
- Making dinner and thinking about stuff to make is harder now than when I had less time, because now there's more time to think about it. It's counter-intuitive but true.
- I'm doing a bunch of laundry and constantly washing dishes or loading/unloading the dishwasher.
- When I go out I'm surprised to see a lot of people out and about — a lot of older people and I'm not sure about the rest, retired young people, off day? Why isn't everyone working.
I still have steam clean the carpets, work on the landscaping outside and getting a landscaper, paint the master bedroom, get some artwork hung up, and lots of other stuff.
Rather than soap operas though I'm surfing the Web and checking out what's happening in Mozilla-land here and there. I'd like to devote the two hours I used to use to commute to work for mozilla.org stuff. What's interesting about not commuting to Mountain View is that my car stays a lot cleaner longer.
