Anyway, yes, list-making is a favorite past time of mine, and this exercise made me realize how many things I've been meaning to do*... and have been putting off. So I thought maybe if I wrote them all down (or, at least the first 10 that came to my mind) in black and white, I might actually get the motivation to do them. Well, a girl can hope anyway...
- Clean out my über-tiny closet, switch out winter clothes for
summer clothesthe three t-shirts and one pair of shorts that are in a box labeled "summer clothes" in the basement.
- Buy some new summer clothes - oh, and buy a dress! Yes, I want to wear dresses. Summery, casual ones. That go with casual sandals.
- List items on eBay that I've been meaning to sell for... a while.
- Go through Eliza's dresser and box up clothes that no longer fit her or are too warm to wear - it was 104 degrees here yesterday, people! It's time for the warm clothes to move over (for at least a few months...) and make room for summer clothes.
- Pay more attention to my cats. This includes: brushing them, clipping their
daggersnails regularly, and other good-cat-owner behaviors. They have been seriously neglected since approximately 11-14-09.
- Get my sewing machine fixed so that I can...
- Hem the dust ruffle (what an ugly name for something so pretty) on Eliza's crib. I made it so that it was the right length for the mattress at its highest/wee-baby setting, and now that it's on the lowest setting, it looks ridiculous.
- Find or develop a recipe for a healthy muffin for Eliza. That girl is SUCH a carb fiend (hubby wants to find this shirt in her size), and I'd like to offer her a nutrient-packed, whole wheat, grainy (read: not as yummy) version of one of her favorite treats: the muffin. Recommendations welcome!
- Weed my tomato bed. Buy cocoa bean mulch, add mulch to said tomato bed.
- Buy thistle seed and fill the backyard bird feeders.
*this list (obviously) only pertains to inter-household/domestic-awesomeness duties. My long list of grad school to-dos is tedious and boring, so I won't make you read it. You're welcome.
