Better way to spend the day
I would soooo much rather spend the day here, in this beautiful setting for a Chanel opening in Paris, than in my kitchen cleaning out cabinets and drawers, and sorting through the thousands of catalogues that seem to multiply by the hour!!!!!!
All day today I kept thinking to myself that there are so many people that must view my profile on facebook and on my blog and because I don't have a business title, and don't 'earn a salary" assume I don't "work".
For those of you who think the women and men of today are more enlightened, think again. For many, including my children, I am ALWAYS supposed to be available to chat, or BBM, or TEXT. To them, I am always on vacation, can always run errands, and don't add anything to the household.
While it is true that I am lucky enough to have household help for the major cleaning, REAL clean, only happens when you do it yourself. NO ONE, can toss your garbage but you. NO ONE can organize your stuff (or should) but you. I'm STILL trying to come to terms with the whirlwind that I called my daughter during Thanksgiving break. Her room was sort of picked up, spun around, and dropped.
Boy would I rather be sitting at the Chanel show.
