You’ve heard it before

I’m not even going to apologize for being absent for so long, nor say I’ll do better. You’ve heard it before. Moving on…

I’m going to go ahead and call today a complete write-off. I shower at night, so I’m clean, and I did brush my teeth this morning. I put on clothes when I got up. (I really don’t like hanging around in my pajamas.) But as for washing my face, putting on makeup, going, you know, outside or anything like that—uh, nope.

As for what I’ve done, well. Let’s compare it to the list of what I had planned to do:

Planned: Actually did:
Do a bunch of laundry Not yet, but there’s still hope for a load or two
Mop the kitchen Nope
Sew: finish my green top Um, probably not
Sew: cut out the print top I just don’t see it happening today
Finish the dogs’ car seats Nuh-uh.
Dump the MBR litter box Tomorrow. I’ll just add more litter tonight.
Sanitize the Dobie sponge* Nuh-uh
Add water to the pool Nope, though it’s better to do it when it’s not so hot anyway. That’s my story.
Buy a cheap curling iron Meh. I’m getting my hair cut Tuesday anyway.
Buy the cat food I forgot yesterday when I was at Petsmart We’ve got enough for today and tomorrow morning.
 Work out  HAA Hahahaha!

*Hey, I’m sensitive to that dirty dishwater smell, and I found a method that actually works.**
**1/4 cup of bleach in 5 cups of water. Soak for 5 minutes. Amazing! It smells completely clean.

What I did do, even though I hadn’t planned on it:

Didn’t plan but did:
Downloaded music from Freegal
Updated my iTunes Wish List
Went through the vinyl records I saved because I couldn’t find them on iTunes to put on my wish list; realized they’re still not on iTunes.
Updated my Gift Registry list to include CDs with songs I can’t get on iTunes
Ordered gifts for some of the other fall birthdays for the upcoming Fall Birthday Bash
Wrote niece a harassing email, reminding her to update her gift list
Looked up the no-soak bean cooking method
Started beans cooking for dinner. Warned Rich that I might not know what I’m doing and we could end up at Chipotle.
Checked Facebook a few times
Checked Twitter & didn’t know what the first three tweets on my feed were referring to; left.
 Looked at the clock and said, “Oh, my gosh! It’s 11:00!”
 Looked at the clock and said, “Oh, my gosh! It’s 12:30!”
 Looked at the clock and said, “Oh, my gosh! It’s 2:00!”
 Looked at the clock and said, “Oh, my gosh! It’s almost 4:00!”
 Wrote a new blog post.

Yeah, that about sums it up.

So I think I’ll just give up and go knit (which means I might—hey!—finish the Hitchhiker scarf that’s been on my To Do list for weeks).

But I’m not going to count on that.
