i just spent the last few hours ironing whilst enjoying a cold beer. there were more than a few times i thought, 'why do i insist on buying so many shirts with ruffles?' and 'i used to pay people to do this for me!' and 'why didn't my mom ever grab a beer when she was doing this?'
now admittedly, i like ironing more than the average person, but i have a word of advice for the intertubes here. when you feel as though life is overwhelming you, do your ironing. it is amazing how much better you can feel if you just tackle the pile of wrinkled fabrics. the rest will follow.
