Last night we were discussing the whole employment thing, and I mentioned that we should just get the local community college to pay Alex a gazillion dollars a year to teach classes in his favorite subjects, like maybe building electric cars, photoshop, or shooting and editing video.
He said, "I'm sure a lot of people would love for the college to do that. Hmmm. Quilting 101. Professor, we all just wanted to say that we have brought pieces of our favorite fabric to share with you. Brrrring, Brrrring, Professor? This is The Quilted Works, we just wanted to offer you samples of all of our best fabrics to use in your class since you are such a great and influential quilter. What's that? JoAnn already offered to do this last month? That's okay. We don't mind if you double endorse."
I'm so glad we have worked this out for me now. I was really wondering what I would do with myself when the munchkins reach school age.
PS. Here are a couple of neurotic thoughts that I am typing so that I can realize how patently ridiculous they are: Hmm. I wonder if this laundry soap will run out before we have found another job. If it does, can I just quit doing laundry? I love having no job.
Should I really eat this? What if we run out of food? What will we do? This unemployment thing is great. If we run completely out of food I can finally lose my baby weight. I guess I better eat more and faster so I can lose the weight faster.
