The novel will be written. Or an outline for the novel will be completed. Or I will use up all 140 characters in my Twitter updates.
The house will be cleaner. Or straightened-er. Or I will get that sticky area off of the floor between the big chair and the bookcase that showed up last spring that I'm pretty sure is cat barf.
I will dress like the moms in Cookie Magazine. Or I will dress in street clothes instead of pajamas. Or I will wear actual clean pajamas, not “clean” as decided by a sniff test.
So, I have plans, lofty plans. Here's how it's going so far:
On Day One, I came home and used my two free hours to clean the baseboards, make a wish list on the Anthropologie website, and do some research for the novel.
On Day Two I watched 3½ Tivo'd episodes of How I Met Your Mother.
On Day Three I changed back into the pajamas I slept in and ate a 12 oz bag of Trader Joe’s Veggie and Flax Seed Tortilla Chips while getting misty watching baby videos of my son on YouTube. Then I counted the minutes until I could pick him up from school, drove back early and sat in my station wagon in the parking lot until that damned two hours was up.
I think I'm really hitting my stride.
