RAWR! Look at me be productive!  
So far today I have folded and put away a metric butt ton of laundry, worked on WW stuff, approved a bunch of folks for my new email list, and done a ton of cleaning/yardwork.

I have an anaphyllactic allergy to bee stings, so I usually like to have a "babysitter" when I work in the yard. Since my usual suspects are all currently employed or otherwise busy, I hired a minion from craigslist instead. Best. Minion. Ever. He helped me empty the shed, clean it, and put everything back in, plus a bunch of stuff from the basement that I wanted out of the furnace room. There was a momma mouse who had taken up residence in there so we evicted her, threw away her nest (don't worry corvusjoyous  - no pinkies, I checked, just for you), and tore out all the padding on the walls that she was using as nesting material. The rent-a-minion is an unemployed construction worker, so he's even coming back tomorrow with tools to fix the doors. :)

Then there was a lunch/custard break. Mmmm... Custard. We even happened to run into goldfrog, R, and their spawn at the neighborhood Culver's.

After lunch, he still had time and needed more cash for rent, so when we returned, we did a bunch of heavy-duty weed pulling, transplanting, and digging. Much improvement in the side yard was made,but there's still a lot to do there. Ooof. I'm beat. I'm thinking a shower, then a nap, then indoors cleaning, which is what I was supposed to be doing today. It was just so beautiful, even though storms were forecast, I wanted to get some of the yard stuff done while it was nice.

Anyway, clean my person, nap, then clean the inside of the house...

It actually works remarkably well. I get a babysitter and an extra set of hands/someone with the magical power of tall and meanwhile get to help out an un- or under-employed person. I've done it a fair bit and generally I have been happy with the results.

Not only am I shamed by your productivity, but you once again evidence yourself as a genius. I bow.
