I Need A Maid
Weekends are never long enough to hang out with friends, sleep for hours and then do all those necessary chores. In my world, the chores are always the last thing to get done. Last night around 11pm I broke down and went to the grocery store after accepting the fact that food was not going to magically appear no matter how many times I went to the fridge. Food was such a scarcity in my house that prior to shopping, the only things to be found in fridge were various condiments and several bottles of champagne. The cupboards are also quite barren – except for a few ramen noodles that I refused to eat yesterday even thought I was wicked hungry and was holding ground against ordering takeout. There was no food as I hadn’t been grocery shopping in over a month. Mostly I’ve been eating out or ordering takeout. Part of it is laziness but I just don’t enjoy cooking. Well actually the cooking part isn’t so bad, it’s the cleaning up I detest. It really would be nice to have a dishwasher. In addition to grocery shopping, I did manage to do laundry yesterday. Yet another thing I had not done in a month. I’m one of those people that goes out and buys clean underwear and sox before doing laundry. Once again, I can’t help but think that it would be nice to have a helper (code work for maid). I don’t want to give the impression that I keep a messy apartment. I do try and keep a tidy living space as I hate coming home to a chaotic environment, plus you never know when someone might drop by, but I hate all the time and energy I have to devote to household activities. Dusting and cleaning is simply not my forte.
