So it's my last weekday before school starts...

... and I've mixed emotions about that. Sure, I need to get my rump in gear and do 'things' I've got on 'lists'. Sure, I like lists, I just don't *always* feel like doing what they (or anyone) say. I've been big on some of the seven 'deadly' sins lately - especially sloth and gluttony. Not good, considering I'm going to a yoga retreat next friday. Sure, my hamstrings will be better (which is the reason I give myself for my inactivity) but my eating hasn't been very good.

Somehow there's a monsoon outside - it's been dark outside most of the day (for august, relatively speaking) and now I understand why. Dear, I've been meaning to mow the lawn (one of those things on a list) but the last two days it's looked like it was going to rain at any moment - not to mention that you've been home in the mornings and I've wanted to hang out with you instead of do chores and other things like clean the house.

I'm kind of trying to make myself sick enough of sitting around that I'll keep busy during the school year and not sit around here just because I technically have the time to do so. Let's hope that works. :)

Since I was thinking about it, here's a partial list of thing I'd like to do before pushing up daisies (in no particular order):

1. Go on a cross-country road trip in a convertible with Natha
2. Have a round room with nothing but bookshelves filled with books on the walls
3. Own and wear out to somewhere a dress that has a plunging neckline - the kind that goes down slightly past my bellybutton
4. Make a quilt out of Natha's baby clothes
5. See Natha get married and have a kid (if he wants one)
6. Sew a dress of my own design
7. Spend time traveling with Ed once Natha's out of the house
8. Go to Las Vegas and play poker (prepared to lose money)
9. Try a few more goofballs
10. Enter a bikini contest at a bar (just a wet t-shirt contest, maybe)
11. Watch Gone With the Wind every Thanksgiving
12. Go on several more solo vacations
13. Give Ed a small spoon every day until they day he dies

That's all for now - it's time to go stand in line to go pick up Natha from school. Natha's going to a Parent's Night Out tonight - he thinks we 'allow' him to go so he can have fun - and that's how we want it to stay, too. :)
