I would rather...

I would rather clean the bathroom than go to work. I considered that, and realized the bathroom isn't really dirty, so it's not exactly an even exchange. I further considered cleaning all the bathrooms on the block in exchange for going to work, but that idea made me.

So, in all fairness, I decided on window washing. There are 24 windows in this house, and I need a hose and pole attachment to reach most of them. It would keep me outside most of the day, but the windows would be nice and clean.

I'd rather wash windows than go to work. Naturally, I'm actually going to work, but....it's always nice to have a fantasy, yes?

What would you rather do than go to work?

And, do have a nice day, everyone!


How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Right now I don't work outside the home but I do work at home all the time. I clean, cook, do laundry, mow lawn and garden work. Yes I would rather work at home then go out and work for someone else.

Indeed the thought of dragging your feet to go to work is rather daunting. Combing the countryside for edible mushrooms, chestnuts and sweet and delicious apples from abandoned field is the perfect way to spending a nice day.

Here I am wishing I wasn't at home and was back at work lol! I am missing my old job a lot. My ideal scenario is part time work....and I like that I keep my finger in a few career pies.....nothing worse for me than boredom at work. I manage to do some work from home too....which doesn't work for a lot of people but makes me happy. Only when people come round I have to be REALLY tidy, lol. When its just me typing away its bliss....me, comfy clothes on the sofa with my cats. I shower and make up in time for the husband to come home, lol!

I don't know about you people but I'd much rather be on a tropical beach somewhere than going to work anyday.

I quit working (retired) about 7 years ago, but I can really remember not wanting to go to work. I was having too much fun at home and not enough fun at work. So we developed an even lower life style than what we had, and I stay home full time to keep the homestead humming along. Yep, there is not much cash flow, but I would not trade what I have for anything. There is nothing I would rather be doing and I am blessed. Life is full of compromises, and I have not tired of this life choice, and do not expect to.

I overslept today. I wasn't late for work, but I had one of those frantic 10 minutes of getting ready. Now I'm at work but can't get motivated to DO work. I should go home.

Overslept today
I do not want to be here
Maybe I'll go home.

Well since I don't work outside the home... today, I'd like to go to work. Maybe as a IRS agent or a garbage man so that I can remember again how dang lucky I am that I don't work outside the home. :)

I would rather be home on the boat with my feet in my warm slippers than here in the office in flip flops with my feet freezing! (I hate shoes before Nov. 1!!!) It wasn't supposed to be cold today.
