Mah Jongg Night!
I love the freedom in my life now and it’s a struggle to settle into much of a *routine*. Coffee in the morning and wine in the evening, with a dog walk or two thrown in – I can pretty much count on these. But come every Thursday night – it’s time for Mah Jongg with some of my favorite Island friends.
And this week it’s at MY house!
It’s taken me a couple of days to process the heaps of laundry, so we can get to the dining room table. And yes, you can actually SEE the table-top. This is good since the Mah Jongg tiles require one.
My housekeeping efforts are sporadic these days – it seems impossible for my yard, home and body to ALL look well-groomed at the same time! Once I *was* fairly neurotic about all these, and oh yes, at the same time I worked at a JOB and raised 2 kids, too. Honestly, I don’t know how I did it, and I did it pretty darned well!!
I ponder sometimes (not very much) if I’m relaxed or just lazy. My priorities have shifted a LOT over the years.
I do happen to love the *look* of clean, well-organized, groomed and all that – I just don’t like to be the one *making it happen.* Was I a princess in a previous life? I need staff…
I don’t know about you, but if I didn’t have Mah Jongg or house guests occasionally, to force me to tackle the regular maintenance cleaning, and maybe even wrap up a few pending projects, it might take me a very long time to get around to it.
