More: How not to make deadline…

Actual game of tiddlywinks.Ah… So Tiddly Winks actually exist.

NOT just a cliché. SEE! Take THAT, all you editors, who struck them out of my writing with your non-repro blue china markers… there IS such a thing after all.

I wonder if they’re fun?

Because now I really, really want a set. Okay. Ebay, next up, right after I post to this blog, then, oh wait: this computer monitor is kinda dusty. Better wipe that off.

Where’s my rag?

STOP! FOCUS! You have a CLIENT to meet. In the MORNING, no less. It’s not like you can get up early and fake it…

(yeah, like you EVER get up early)

YES I do – I get up with the kids every morning…

(Getting up and smoking at your desk, cheering them on in your pajamas, “work-at-home-mom,” while they get themselves ready, doesn’t count. Especially if you sneak back to bed for “five more minutes” after.)

It counts! I walk the dog every morning, after I walk Annie to the schoolbus stop, don’t I? Er, most mornings?

(Only if your hair doesn’t look like Madeline Kahn in Young Frankenstein, and providing you can find a hat if it does… otherwise it’s the backyard of doo for the dog.)

I really have to try that trick of training him to go in just one spot.

(Sure. Like you’re EVER going to pile up dogsh*t in a lump in your own yard… like there exist gloves THAT industrial. Have you gotten a load of the size of that dog?)

Hmm. Good point. Speaking of which, what’s our point again?


Is that why I’m talking to myself?

Beats getting down to business.

How not to make deadline

The Easiest Song in the World, © Elizabeth Williams Bushey

DominoesIt’s been a day full of piling up dominoes, and knocking them down. Fruitless, but sort of fun.

Don’t get me wrong: I’ve had days, literally, where stacking up dominoes and knocking them down was a good, productive day – but today wasn’t one of them.

I DID re-record the above song, though.

And I redid the look of this blog. (SO very important. MMM-yeah.)

So technically, I DID get stuff done today.

Oh – and I built a table. (Well, I sanded wood down, covered it in batting and fabric… still trying to figure out the coolest way to coordinate legs for it…)

But I still have things I’m putting off doing. And a pile of junk.

I only have until June to clean 3000 square feet for Peter when he comes home. Peter is extremely tidy, and I really would like it to be better than when he left.

My friends are right when they say my life is like a movie. Today, though, it was the part when you run out for popcorn.
