So, things have been going well at work. I’m up to 4 clients now. I’m going from 8:30 to 5:30 non stop. I’m working on getting used to having a lot less time to myself all around. Afterwards, I want to just lay down and unwind and that’s when Andrew comes home. I’m assuming I’ll get used to it but it’s like everyone needs something from me all day and then I can’t even get 5 minutes to myself afterwards, not even in the bathroom (since Andrew thinks it’s funny to just walk in on me and it’s become a normal thing for him to stand there and talk to me while I’m on the toilet). It doesn’t help that I’ve had the kids 2 weekends in a row and am taking them next weekend on Friday to Saturday. I mean, it’s to help my step dad out so he and my brother could go to the St. Patrick’s Day parade today. I’m really looking forward to next Saturday when the house is quiet, and hopefully clean, and I can just sit down and relax and have a few drinks.
Speaking of the house, it’s in shambles. When I wasn’t working, it wasn’t spotless, that’s for sure, but it all fell on me. I was in charge of the house because I wasn’t working. Fair enough, right? I’m not the best housekeeper and Andrew, bless his heart, never said a word about it. He had a right to but never did. Now that I’m working, I think it’s only fair that we share the housework. However, this hasn’t been properly vocalized to anyone, yet. But it’s coming. I know if I don’t do it soon, it’s going to come out in the form of an explosion that Andrew is going to get the brunt of because my brother is never home. I’m seriously thinking a chore chart might be best for this. Of course, anything relating to the animals is my responsibility and something I need to work on. As of now, my life is being run by alarms and notifications so I don’t see what it can hurt to set a few more to do the litter boxes and dog papers. Andrew already does the laundry because I’m a little bitch and can’t enter the basement by myself. I’ll give Patrick something to do because even, though, he’s never home, he can at least keep his room clean and maybe the bathroom. I need to get the house in order because everything is chaos, and when I have to move soda bottles or coffee cups off of my desk to work in the morning, it makes for a miserable Randi.
As a matter of fact, I’m not doing anything now (I was playing Minecraft but it keeps crashing because of a driver issue I can’t figure out) so I should probably get on some of it now and tomorrow. It’s difficult with 2 extra people (the kids) parked in my way but I’ll just sweep them into the piles with the broom too.
