Domestic Dude

I'm not really a stay-at-home Dad, even though I play one on TV.

We have cats instead of kids, for one thing. And I do have a semi-regular job, but one that allows me to work from home most days.  But today really felt like a domestic Daddy day.  Check it out:

  • Got up around 6-ish to finish up some work before seeing a client at their office today.
  • Fed the cats.  Shut up.
  • Cleaned out the fridge as the leftovers in there were beginning to mutate into intelligent beings.
  • Took the garbage, including the mutated leftovers, out to the curb on my way to see my client.
  • Spent three hours or so in the office. do you people do it?
  • Dropped off some of Gia's prescriptions at the pharmacist.
  • Did a small grocery shopping.  Needed some half & half.
  • Picked up the filled prescriptions from the pharmacist.
  • Did another 3-4 hours of work at home.
  • Dyed Gia's roots for her.  I did it once about a year ago and she loved how it came out so I've been doing it ever since.  Once again...shut up!
  • Cooked dinner for the two of us.  OK, it was basically heating up sauce and meatballs purchased from the Italian Pork Store around the corner, but I did cook the pasta.  Shut up!
  • Did a load of laundry and folded another two loads.
  • Collapsed on the couch to spit out this here nonsense on this here blog.

I'd be a good stay-at-home Dad.

If I could stomach kids, that is.

Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. I did manage to fit in the Yankee game, though.  I need a little "me" time.

I would love it if you were my daddy. WHOA...that sounded better in my head. As you would say, "SHUT UP!"

Verdant Earl said...

Heff - yeah, but I get to sleep in tomorrow and work in my jammies.

Doggie - It sounded better in your head? Dude, you got a gay head. Too soon?

I'm impressed with your multi-tasking skills.

I love my two days a week working at home, they almost make up for the 14 hour days when I am in London. And I get to do the domestic stuff in between work too. Marvellous.

Verdant Earl said...

Holly - Hey, she asked. I obliged. In a very manly fashion.

Verdant Earl said...

Rachel - ah, relax! Being off work is reward enough.

Candy - Tell me about it. No, wait! Tell GIA about it. ;)

Kate - Shucks! :)

badger - try not to be so literal. ;)

Kaye Waller said...

You have an Italian pork store? You mean, all they sell is pork?

sybil law said...

Whew! That was a lot! Gia is a luck,y lucky woman. :)But I am glad you got some "me" time.

Verdant Earl said...

Steph - Ha! No, but for some reason a lot of Italian food specialty stores in the NY-area are called Italian Pork stores. It's gotta be the sauseege!

Sybil - It wasn't so bad, but yes...she is lucky!

hello haha narf said...

Verdant Earl said...

Becky - If you think you can support the both of us, then by all means. ;)

Miss Britt said...

Well, for sure, you'd make a hell of a stay at home mom.
