Vacation land--day one

So here I am with the day off. I'm still in my jammies. I'm trying to decide if I should shower now or wait until later. My housekeeper is here. Yes, I have a housekeeper. A lovely woman who probably makes more money than I do. I have the IKEA furniture to put together, some decorations to get out, a trip to the produce store and the five and dime planned, and some bill-paying. A full day. I'd also like to find the time to write a little, but am feeling compelled to get organized today, leaving me time to write on Thursday and Friday.

I'm looking around at all my various piles and hoping to make them at least smaller. I also have this weird desire to organize the kitchen cabinets--scary. I see everyone is kind of in a slump, dealing with grading, cranky students, and dumb meetings (I'd link, but choose pretty much any link to the right at random and you'll find something). I feel for you all. Been there and now must listen to it in person regularly from Mr. GM.

I think a shower is definitely in order. I need to be clean before I start cleaning the house.
