SAH...Do I have to?
I miss working outside of the house.
Miss the years I worked in an office, miss the years I worked at the local television station, miss the years I worked with the flower delivery company as a secretary.
After my back injury 13 years ago, I landed on disability, and for that first year I was like "whoopie I have all this time to write"
That got old fast. Now, I would just like a reason to get out of my pajamas every day and have someplace to go.
I have a briefcase and travel mug that would like to be used. Seriously, I actually still have a briefcase. One of those hard cased ones. It sits in the corner of my living room covered in dust because I haven't been able to use it in 13 years. I'm suddenly feeling very American Psycho. You know the part where the lead character is talking about the one up-manship of the business cards. Yeah, that's how we were with our briefcases.
While on the topic of movie office gear, you know the scene in Reality Bites when Ryder's character holds up her dayplanner and it's jam packed with pages and sticky notes, yeah mine used to look like that too. Now, it is very empty and thin. Just when did my dayplanner go on a diet anyway?
