Another work week has slipped by us all. Friday is upon us once again and with it the promise of deserved rest over the weekend. Of course, if you are like me there is a complete list of things to do just waiting. Those of you who have regular jobs probably think us loafing full-time writers have all kinds of time to get those little home chores done during the week.
I have seen the looks at Lowes. “You look retired. What the hell are you doing here on the weekend? Why don’t you give us workers a break and stay the hell home.” That was the look put down in words. I have an answer. There never is enough time during the week to get those tiny tasks done. After all, there are posts to write, edits to do, new fiction to invent, new google research topics, coffee to drink, and tweets to publish. I haven’t even mentioned the dogs to walk, the bike to ride and photo’s to be taken I DESERVE TO GO TO LOWES ON THE WEEKEND JUST AS MUCH AS THE NEXT PERSON.
Whew. I had to get that off my chest. The truth is I just can’t imagine going to Lowes during the week. I would miss the crowds, the lack of checkers, the unavailable help, and the general feeling of accomplishment just getting out of the place with half of what I went there to buy. So I’ll still truck to Lowes on the weekend to check in with my fellow do it your selfers (yes, I know that is not a word) and revel in our mutual bond of misery. Why change? Oh, and the John Ku this week asks a question about change. Hope you like it.

Satisfied that all is good. . .
Is change to be feared?
