Countdown

It’s my last week at Hearst. I made a point of transitioning my work as quickly as I could so that I would still be around to clarify and answer questions. And I did it so well that… I’m kind of bored. I made a list of things to accomplish this week and most of them are already done. Hence you see this rare workday posting from me.

I haven’t cleaned out my office significantly yet because that will prove to me that I’m leaving. Which makes a little hitch come up in my chest. I’m terribly excited to make this move. But the trees in Central Park (of which I have a fabulous view) have exploded into green and I haven’t spent enough time yet gazing out over them. I keep reminding myself that I will be even happier gazing at my son playing in his own backyard. But that backyard is theoretical to me, while my office and the park are real. I’m relying on logic to power me through.

As I type this I can see a naked guy in the condos across from my office. How can I give this up?

Well, I can. Because if we move to Tennessee we can afford a cleaning lady. And I will love her even more than I love random naked men, and that is a lot.

  1. The trees are nice in Tennessee, I think. And you may get some of that blue grass down from Kentucky.

  8. Could you ask her to clean naked, and thus combine the best of both worlds?

  15. It is gorgeous in TN right now. It is much, much better than Central Park, though I’ll admit I’ve never been anywhere that had any sort of view from above the park. The dogwoods are just finishing up their show, and the oaks are in full spring burst. You are not going to want for scenery, except presumably in the naked man department.
    My husband and I wish we had a cleaning lady. Well, two, actually. I want Rosa, a large, efficient woman who gets stuff done. He wants her daughter, Rosita, who will wear the appropriate maid outfit and walk around looking sexy. I greatly envy you your cleaning lady-to-be.

    • Thank you. That really does make me feel more confident. We had our first open house today, so I guess we really are on our way.
      You know, I’ve never had a cleaning lady as an adult. I’d be delighted to settle for a large, efficient woman who cleans in a sexy maid outfit. Whatever she wants.

  22. Honestly, she can append any old thing as long as the cleaning part is covered.
