Box o' Sox

We are out gallivanting tonight, so here is a short post in our continuing Suzy Homemaker series.

What do you do when you wake up two hours before the alarm clock is set to go off, and you know you won't go back to sleep?  If your parents burdened you with Work Ethic, you pick something from the very long To Do List, and then do it.  Make sure you pick something that you know will take less than two hours so you don't get frustrated.

Some of you might be asking how long this orderly set-up is supposed to last.  If you've ever cleaned up your sock drawer, you already know exactly how long it will last.

When your sock drawer is finished, you can

Oh, no, wait.  Sorry - wrong image.  You can go off to work, whistling all the way!
