The Importance of Being Earnest...and Frank

This weekend no OT; 21 yr old and Wifey are celebrating their birthdays!
We got (finally) paid our (child?)tax returns and our EBT cards so it's a big cookout on Saturday and Friday inviting the 21 yr old's friends over.
Plus all that OT from the last check and I got a nice bonus (yay)
I wish we could just cater everything and hire cleaning ladies, Wifey already has her plans tho. I said "it's not a rich people thing, but if we budget it why not."
I told her I finally see the main thing for people of our (or any age); it's time.
And more time for other things can be done by hiring others to do things like cleaning, yardwork, etc.
Yes, it's admirable and a good workout to do it yourself but what I finally taught her the last time we moved and hired cleaning help and movers of the heavy shit
JUST BC YOU CAN DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD
She grew up hardcore (1st nation anyway) hard with her Mom doing menial jobs, me we were lower Middle Class...yes chores and all
You never want to break down (gently or otherwise ) a woman with a plan; she'll eventually say "fuck it" and anything she was goal setting will end up trashed. I told her about hiring the help briefly and she was almost getting upset so I quit.
YOU GOTTA READ THE ROOM. BUT SOMETIMES THERE IS NO RIGHT TIME TO SAY ANYTHING.
But anyway....yeah. Last day at work.
Tomorrow, taking Leave. Gonna do a decent trot b4 the sun comes completely up on base and then jet for (I'm sure) a big 'Honey-Do' list
Just thought I'd vent!
