The Things I Should Be Doing

  • the dishes
  • cleaning the litter box
  • reading something
  • writing that pesky story
  • studying Spanish

But I'm not feeling very motivated tonight. Even reading doesn't sound appealing, and it's usually the one thing I can be content doing when I don't feel like doing anything. (After all these years of being an English major, I still have moments when I can't believe that reading novels is my homework.) But lately I've been falling into these hour-long naps on the couch whenever I read, and hour-long naps on the couch after dark always make me feel dull-witted for the rest of the night. In fact, I think the side effects of my naps are causing me to develop a Pavlovian aversion to reading.

So for now I'm kind of just biding my time until Eric gets home from work and we can go to Brigid's, where a former student of mine is supposed to be playing at 9:00. I've got a little over an hour to kill, and I'm burned out on The Sims. Maybe I'll attack the dishes and the litter box and see what's on PBS.

What happened?? I just got sucked into 3 home remodeling shows, back to back. That's an hour and a half of my life down the tubes... Jzzzooooooooooop!!

Hope you accomplished more than me tonight! (and if you didn't, I hope you enjoyed some relaxation :))

Didn't accomplish anything really, but I did enjoy myself. I had a beer and a peppermint patty...and was very impressed with Ana's voice. It was a good night. I'll get things done tomorrow.

Wow, except for the litterbox part and the PBS part (if we had cable I'd watch PBS) your life sounds eerily similar to mine. I couldn't read last night either -- such a weird feeling. (Oh my god?! What do I do if I don't want to read?)
