Minikin's Journal

Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I'm staring at a mountain of everything to do. Hard to pick.

Someone on my friend's list has starting writing fantasy journal entries. Journals which chronicle the daily activities of the life she fantisizes. I think this is an interesting exercise in looking at you really want out of life. I was surprised that her first entry of this nature seemed so attainable.

And then I realized. Often, when I type out lists and plan what I'll do the next day, I'm writing my fantasy journal.

And sometimes, I live parts of my fantasies. :)

So I tackled the largest, in physical volume of my mountains, today, while also giving a nod to time constraints. I'm having Nurse over for dinner and it's likely to snow tonight AND the temperature is expected to plummet.

So far, I've:
  • assembled the Ham and Swiss Casserole, ready to bake tonight.
  • sorted the clothes on top of the jacuzzi
  • washed & dried whites
  • washed & drying colors
  • washing sweaters and fleece
  • packed Flar's bag for him
  • had a nice lunch
  • added a link to my memories to my friends view

Tonight, I'll:
  • get Critter to do dishes
  • get Tigger to rinse recycling
  • hand-wash the rest
  • wash the rest of the laundry
  • get bowling forms ready
  • visit with Nurse

And now it's time to take Flar to the airport.

That recipe looks good, thanks for posting it! :)

I'm glad I did. I've no idea where the card went after, though.

Thanks, it is good.

But I really shouldn't have had that second helping.

I was too hungry when we sat down to dinner, and I kind of inhaled my first helping. I had a banana and milk to finish up, and should have had them before taking a second helping. After all, the theory behind concentrating on adding fruit and milk to my diet, is that it will fill me up and keep me from overeating other foods...

I could explain why they are currently not attainable but then everyone would remind me again of how wrong and defeatist I am so I'll just shut up.

I actually understand the part about why it's fantasy, even if it seems attainable to outside observers.

My things-to-lists are attainable, but I never seem to get them all done. I spend a lot of time on other things. Or I stare into space, or play solitaire, etc.

But you know, the days where I have lists are better than the days where I don't even make a list. So I think it would be good for you in the long run, if you write these alternative posts, of what you'd like your life to be.
