I took yesterday off everything that required the tiniest wisp of effort. (OK, I might have cleaned out a closet).
Today, I turn to the list. It is five legal pad pages long and itemizes... items that must be accomplished in both the near and short term. Some items, such as "call for dental appointment" can be crossed out in less than a minute. Others, such as "conquer your daddy issues" are so intimidating that they can send a person into bed with a book and a pint of ice cream* before she even turns to the yellow pages to find a reputable therapist.**
So that I don't upset myself by trying too hard today, only items on the housework and home improvement sectors of the list will be attempted. Go ahead and be a little impressed, because that sector includes the item where I go to the local hardware store and rent a carpet cleaner. I might post before and after pictures. It depends on whether the "buy a decent camera" item gets crossed off before or after I drag my ass into the hardware store. Also featured prominently on today's agenda: "don't be so gross."
Because I know that lately, you have come to expect from my a never-ending litany of online quiz results, I give you this:
If my passion for integrity kicks in - you know - between scrubbing the floor under my refrigerator and shaving the pills off my sweaters - I'll write a post about why I love other people's old dish towels. I know you won't want to miss that.
Happy New Year.*** (And thank you for reading).
*No, I do not eat ice cream in bed. I am gross, but not that gross.
** Headologist Bootstraps is about to get fired on account of her reluctance to prescribe even reasonable, tiny little doses of Xanax and her love prescribing dangerous mood stabilizing drugs that I do not need.
*** Will somebody please explain why we need to capitalize all three words of this phrase? I know there is a reason, but I don't know what it is. Hm.
