I am tired of doing everything for people who literally have endless resources if only they could be bothered to help themselves ever. I decided, rather rashly, in the supermarket last night that I was tired of being held hostage by the kitchen.
Please be aware that I almost did not buy those soup packets because the second item listed on the instructions is 1.5lbs baby red potatoes, chopped, because uh, there are potatoes in there! I see them! But then it reads OR 24-oz frozen hashbrowns. Now we're talking!
Also, it tells you to use an immersion blender which, guess what?, means chopping baby red potatoes is freaking makework, but people neverrrrr get tired of kitchen makework.
Anyhow, tomorrow in Eat The Same Damn Pre-made Food Everyone Else In Our Income Bracket Eats All The Time: Kids will be amazed butternut squash comes in a bag from the freezer section. (I actually was kind of surprised.)
Since I have bought a week's menu of Who Cares, I realize that I am just feeling generally resentful about doing everything for two people who have everything, to be honest. I think what started it was giving birth. Hahaha!
Ok, yes, but also, more seriously, just how freaked-out everyone is by every single thing, mostly just because they are staring into a crystal ball or reading the news reports from the crystal ball & that is not how I want to live.
Seriously. I am unlikely to look back on this time in my life & wish I had spent more time peering into my device from wherever I was standing, uselessly wringing my hands over world affairs. I'm working on relaxing, like it's my new thing. Plus, the post-Lenten Omer Experience and the Yogi Bhajan book I am reading. The sum of it is very whatever, stop worrying, everything is as it should be, do the task you are given, you'll see it, there, right in front of you.
I think what's right in front of me is a nap. Wow. (Relaxing!) I can not wait until it is warm enough for me to just roll out my mat & do a Baptiste class at home instead of being so bound to an outlet's schedule!
