Friday Shuffle - Rutted Edition
Are you technically in a rut if you simply don't have time to get anything else done but the rut-like activities in which you're currently engaged? And does it matter?
I take care of my husband. I shop. I clean. I cook. I go back to cleaning. I continue to be buried under a mountain of dirty laundry and cardboard. The cardboard I'll eventually rid myself of by hauling it down the street to the old paper recycling bin but the laundry? Well I suppose that problem could be solved by me hauling my dirty clothes to the old clothes collection bin but that leaves me without panties and I simply can't go visit my mother without panties.
And while I'm on the subject of hauling things out of here, may I make one simple request? Could it possibly stop raining long enough for me to get all this cardboard hauled out of here? I'm running out of room in the apartment and it seems to be a bad idea to cart around cardboard in the pouring rain.
You're wondering why I have so much cardboard, right? I mean one family couldn't have so many cardboard boxes, could they? Oh ho! They certainly could if they never threw any out over the course of the year. I have a spare room that tends to be used as a storage area. I get medical supplies for B in these big ass cardboard boxes that are stored in that room that no one but me goes into. They get emptied and if I don't cut them up and throw them out right away, they build up. Add to that the zillion things we order online - books, CDs, clothes, electronics, shoes, etc. - and the packages family and friends send me. Those empty boxes tend to get thrown in the empty medical supply boxes. And all this cardboard in their pressed paper condos get all friendly with one another and they get fruitful and multiply and I end up with the China of the empty carton world.
May as well shuffle while I have time. Then it's back to the cardboard torture chamber before my box cutter cools off.
