(Sorry, flashbacks to Information Society…)
I woke up about nine this morning, and somehow was in the mood to do ALL THE THINGS. I had a to-do list that was 21 items long. (I use Toodledo for my task management, by the way, and it is Fucking Awesome.) A lot of it was serious, like making doctors appointments, but a few things were fun, like buying a couple of albums I wanted. I got all but two things done! Plus I did a shitload of cleaning. I found the floor in the den. And the couch. And my desk. And some other horizontal surfaces that I’d buried in crap. Go me! Tomorrow I want to clean up the place between the couch and the wall, where I keep my crafty stuff that needs to be handy when I work on a project. I’m going to get a set of plastic drawers to put it all in; then I have everything within arm’s reach, but it’s not in a pile on the floor. Speaking of which… there, now that errand is on my task list, and Joanns has a “30% off one item” coupon this week. Perfect.
Unsurprisingly, all this resulted in no crafting today. I’m going to finish up a plying job on my wheel after I finish writing this, and then there will be weaving until bedtime. I’m going to try to go to bed by midnight and get up by nine. I downloaded the Sleep Cycle app for my iPhone, and I’m going to use it tonight. It would be nice to be up at a decent hour every day.
Tomorrow I have therapy, two errands to run (I have to mail out my old loom, and go to Joanns as mentioned), and cleaning to do. Plus I want to exercise in the morning, and finally start the paperwork for my legal name change. I really, really hope I have at least half as much energy as I did today. It felt really good to get stuff done.
Oh, there’s a school update worth mentioning. The dean of my college is letting me retake the class I failed as a Directed Study course, because it’s not available this year at a location near me. This is awesome. It’ll be October before I can start, but better late than never!
I also did spend an hour relaxing in bed with a book, covered in sleeping babbies. It was lovely. I finished Charles Stross’ The Atrocity Archives and immediately hunted down the second Laundry Files book. So good. I normally don’t read fiction, but I’m addicted now.
