so classes are officially done and i’ve turned everything in. the mother of one of my friends is taking care of my daughter in the mornings this week so that I have some time to get some things done. the problem is i have hardly gotten anything done because i am 1) paralyzed by all that i have to do and 2) don’t really want to do any of it.
the list: take a shower, buy a digital camera, buy a wireless router, organize the children’s clothes, take both laptops to be fixed, buy and decorate a christmas tree, figure ideas for what we’re gonna do when the parents get here, finish my master’s thesis, buy gifts for my children’s caregivers, cook, vacuum upstairs, match and put away the socks, clear the bathroom shelves, organize the hall closet, buy more lights, buy gift for my husband, do my yoga practice everyday, prepare data set for next quarter, write these posts, create new pages, fix my favorite sweater, find and scan an old paper, take the car to get the license plates put on, plan dinners with two other couples, figure out what we are going to do during the planned 10-hour power outage, find recipes, and i’m sure there’s more.
now, most of these things are not really things that HAVE to be done, but it would be nice if they were. but all i want to do is sit and drink tea, do crossword puzzles, finish two books, read magazines, watch oprah, and listen to alicia keys and jilly from philly. just chill.
