FOR TODAY, December 8, 2008
Outside My Window... It's gray outside still. I don't know if it's going to be a cloudy day or what. I haven't made it outside yet. Leaves are falling, and yard companies are leaving notes on my door: "Don't you want us to rake your leaves?"
I am thinking... I think the whole BCS thing stinks. And I want a college playoff. I know, I know, not gonna happen. But still!
I am thankful for... the fact that most of the hard stuff I have to do has to get done this week. At least if I have to run like crazy, I can do it this week and maybe calm down a little next week. I'm hoping.
From the kitchen... last night? Nothing. I went to a cookie exchange. Tonight, some sort of soup, because we'll probably have to eat pretty late--after mass.
I am wearing... Blue track pants, flowery shirt with silver sparkles, tennies, silver earrings. Mondays are always a big work day for me, so I'm always dressed for it.
I am creating... #12 of my originally only 10 things. Hmmm. I am also creating panic in myself, thinking about what I need to be doing.
I am going... to the grocery store as soon as I finish blog entries. Then I'm going to pay bills for my family and for my dad. Then.......
I am reading... The Reluctant Widow by Georgette Heyer. I need to pick up The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey, which is our book club selection for December.
I am hoping... that my knee is sore because I had it stretched out funny while I was sleeping. It hurts!
I am hearing... the hum of the refrigerator. And a teeny small voice saying, "I'm empty! Go to the store, get groceries, fill me up!"
Around the house... are a million, small, unfinished projects. Exactly what I hate most. Today's the day to start finishing them and putting them away.
One of my favorite things... a clean house. The fact that I never actually have one only enhances my love of one.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Grocery shopping, bill paying, church tonight, cleaning the parish hall, doing parish financial statements, falling into bed in a coma after the parish council meeting on Thursday night.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... the perfect representation of my life at the moment:
