Shh...I have to whisper..

I have to whisper...I can't let my captor know I am trying to contact the outside world on company time.  You read it right...I am at work.  Wait a minute, you say...you don't have a job do you? Aren't you retired?  YES, yes I am..or I was, it would seem. Now here I sit, trapped in this office.

Time is dragging by.  No, it's crawling. Actually, it doesn't seem to be moving at all..  I keep acccidently looking at the clock. It's like poking something dead with a stick. It's disgusting, but I can't stop myself.

How did this travesty happen you might ask? Well even if you didn't ask, I'm going to tell you. And since I don't know how to do one teeny, tiny little thing that would be even remotely helpful to anyone here at this office, I'm going to start at the beginning and give you the really, really long drawn out version.

Many years ago, in a land far, far away (Cooper Michigan) there was a happy mom with four VERY rambunctious little boys that took up all her time and energy..

Oh rats, here comes the boss.

They grew up. Her husband forced her out into the work world..

The End.

Oooh! Yuck, I hate when the most exciting thing you have to do is look at the clock. I like to use the analogy "its like having a bruise, you can't help but poke it even though it hurts" haha. Painful is right.

Well, I hope you were not captured and I hope your day goes/went by faster!

Work SUCKS! I've worked since I was 16 and I'm just exhausted. If only we could figure out a way to get paid to blog full-time, we'd be in business!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

This is so funny! I had a job in the "grey cube" for a long time - just about drove me crazy. The ONE positive thing about it was that paycheck that came every 2 weeks! :-) I can relate to what you're feeling. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Thanks for dropping by, nice to know that someone survived four boys, most days I don't think I (or they) will live to see their teens. Love your horses, Andalusians are spectacular, mine is an old retired Standard Bred but I love him even if he can't get out of an extended trot. On another note, I noticed you have Beautiful Joe as one of your favourite books, I live one town away from where the dog that inspired the story lived. Small world we mothers of boys live in.

Haha, office work sucks. I feel your pain. Hopefully you have some eyecandy to keep you somewhat occupied [Lucky, in your case ;-) ]

Hi! Stopping by from SITS. I am in the trenches with the little ones still but when my kids all grow up someday I don't think I have any desire to return to the work-force.
Good luck.

Aw, working stinks!

Deborah said...

Your very funny, maybe you should write the book! Tori is funny also!
Nice blog! I'm going to follow!

Perfect example of returning to the work force after working your butt off to raise kids - and end up doing something so mundane. Keep your chin up. I can so appreciate this.

Such a funny post! I noticed you started following me ages ago and I'm just getting back to you to return the favor! Sorry it took so long!
