We’re so tired

I must point out that I get a lot less done than I let on:

I suspect the reason some people are so much more productive than others is that they have spouses who don’t work so long outside the house (if they do at all) and those spouses take care of them. Yes, I’m saying I’d like to go back and somehow be a stereotypical 1950s husband. But really: work is a full-time job, taking care of the house, laundry, cooking, and marketing is a full-time job, and during the warm months here, taking care of the yard is a full-time job. That’s three full-time jobs. And that’s terrible. I probably need to break down and hire a lawn service, I don’t know.

I’m toying with the idea of getting someone to mow; I’ve already (as of the beginning of 2013) signed with a weed/feed specialist. In combination, this would run close to $1000 a year. On the other hand, it would free up some time I can obtain no other way, with the possible exception of Not Sleeping, which is not an acceptable option.

    I am beginning to believe that the reason I found DS9 to be the most interesting of the Star Trek variants was the notion that Bajor had a 26-hour day, which would simplify my life (and my circadian rhythms) markedly.
