I think Garrett may leave me.
Things are getting tense.
Garrett’s job is a little more flexible than mine, meaning he has a little more time during this quarantine than I do.
Meaning, I MIGHT be asking him to do my usual chores for me. Sue me! At first, he offered to pitch in a little more. Then, I saw how good he was at household tasks and started making lil honey-do lists for him. He pouted and procrastinated, but eventually everything got done. Ya girl has somehow not folded laundry or scrubbed a dish this entire quarantine. Little blessings everywhere! But I feel like I’m starting to get too spoiled. Like, I might be acting like an ungrateful brat which is really off brand for me. I noticed it when I was working on a project today and without even batting an eye asked Garrett to refill my water and take out the trash immediately because the stench was annoying me.
Self-isolating with me is fun!

Interesting. I just happen to have pineapple on my counter right now. 🍍
Have to try out this recipe, sounds so tasty 🙂
Not really that off-brand for you…..
Rebranding is good practice from time to time ….
Love the idea of the pineapple in this!
