Today was my day off. Job one? To write a story for class next week. Unfortunately I was like a maniac on speed. I could not settle down to write. I would sit for a minute, then do laundry.
Another few minutes and I was up taking a picture of my neighbor's back yard. I plan to send it to him as a postcard with a nasty note on the back.
I spent about thirty minutes looking for a manual that went with a leader's guide that I found in a box at my office. I thought I could do a good retreat with my friends. If I had found it I could have.
I spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about food (see yesterday's post) and the boat (it was sixty degrees and beautiful). I called Whole Foods to find out the ingredients in their vegan almond cookies so I could figure out how many points I would use if I ate one. Seven. Out of twenty-one for the day.
I sent emails about my husband's upcoming gig.
I cursed the aphids on my orchids and tried to spray them to death (the aphids, not the orchids.)
I talked to all three sisters, two daughters, my husband about ten times, the HVAC guy because the heat isn't working, and a couple of friends.
It was 9:00 p.m. Where did the day go? But I didn't have time to think about it because American Idol was coming on and I had to watch until the bitter end when that cute Alexis got voted off. I cried. But at least she can go home to her daughter.
And now, it's bedtime. I got a lot done, but job one is still pending.
