Conscious Catholicism

Not much to say today, granted it is only 10:23am. I woke up at 5 ish this morning, Mike was on the phone with Maria (his boss). Mike has to be at work at 7am so he gets up early, usually around 4ish, naturally. I think that that is just perverse. So having gotten up so early and it being cold and snowy-like outside, I drove him to work. I’ve since come home and done both his taxes and my own. I efiled, so hopefully the money will be direct depositted correctly into our joint account all for the consumption of bills. They are a voracious evil child. I went food shopping yesterday as well my usual house cleaning (laundry, dishes, vacuum dust and polish) and had a thoroughly enjoyable time doing it. I am not sure if my getting so much pleasure out of domesticity means that I was meant to be a house-husband , or I watch too much Martha Stewart (which I do!), or I’m channelling some sort of New York Italian/Jewish bobbeh (grandmother in Yiddish).

I’m going to get something to eat and then take a nap so that I’m not sleepy at 6 this evening.
