Services Rendered

It was high time I go to the market. Even the dog agreed!

I really, really dislike grocery shopping. It’s an hour of my life I’ll never get back. There are 43,628 things I’d rather do than grocery shop.

Yesterday evening I came home from work, prepared rice to steam, changed clothes, and did a little workout. I returned to the kitchen to prepare dinner (stir-fry, yum!) as Hubs arrived home. We ate and cleaned up. I watered my dead/dying plants and played fetch with pooch until he made me fetch the ball three times and I realized he was over the game.

Then, I prepared to go to the market.

Hubs proposed an interesting trade. He would go the market for me if I would perform a little service for him. Hmmm.... I weighed the pros and cons and wondered if I should take his little offer. I decided it was indeed worth the trade as the service wasn’t that bad.

I happily agreed and sent him off to the grocery store.

Then I went downstairs to the office and did his powerpoint presentation for his International Management class.

Services rendered indeed!

I also have a dirrty mind - not at all the services I was thinking, although I'm sure he very much appreciated it!!

I'm amazed at everything you get done after work. I don't leave the office until 6:30. Get home at 7:30, cook dinner and usually collapse.

I miss the 10 minute commute.

I too hate grocery shopping, too bad DH isn't willing to trade services with me :S

Wow, not the kind of services I was thinking :)
I don't mind getting groceries, it's the putting them away I don't care for.
