Clever Title  

I'm sorry that I haven't been around (has anyone noticed that I haven't been around?) much the past few weeks.  Just a few more and rehearsals will be over and life will go back to normal.

Or as normal as my life ever gets.
Bullet points, because I can't think.
  • Clean my house (No, really.  I mean I have to clean my house, 'cause ugh)
  • Tackle Mt. Laundry  (It is HUGE.  Everest better move over, because our dirty clothes pile is about to take the #1 spot)
  • Get freaking off book for Act II  (I would rather memorize entire pages of passages rather than the little conversational dialogue-y stuff.  I say "Chet!" about 15 million times.  I've started saying it when I go up on my lines, just because odds are, that that's the one I've missed.)
  • Fixed that blasted dress  (I'm close.  Really, really close.)
  • Stay on my diet (Nothing gives incentive like being humiliated by clothing)
  • Something else, I'm sure
I have a funeral to attend tomorrow morning.  I really, really don't like funerals.
I hear:: the washing machine going off

I'm sad you have to go to a funeral. I hope it wasn't someone super close to you - they aren't my favourite thing to attend either.

*hugs you* Good luck with your to-do list. I've just gone and burned mine. Looking at it was painful. :(

Burning the to-do list. Now THERE's something I hadn't thought of.

Lovely icon. *giggles*

*SMOOSHES of encouragement*

Thanks. I've got a ton finished today, so I feel better!
Elle Blessingway: Aaaah! Jack Sparrowelle_blessing on February 24th, 2009 08:20 pm (UTC)

Seriously. There's nothing like the build up of 'to do's' and clutter to make a woman go crazy.

I think I recall you saying something like that about funerals once or twice, yup. Is it strange that I kind of like them? Probably is. It's the tribute component that I like, and the ceremonial part too. When I was little I wanted to be a priest... stop laughing, I did!

Sorry about the funeral. They're never pleasant.

Good luck with everything else!

Bullet points are super nifty. :)

Gah, to-do lists only help de-clutter my head. I never actually DO anything on them :\ So I'm probably not much help with the stress relieving (I agree with Jandy on the burning by the way). Good luck with rehearsals and tackling the chores.

Will we get pictures of the play when you finally do it?

Certainly. Pictures forthcoming after I get them. :D

Ah, to-do lists. They can be helpful, and overwhelming. Blech. Here's a trick a friend shared with me about how she finished grad school:

"Every day I crossed something off my list, whether I'd done it or not." Hee! Applied to daily house-elf chores I'd recommend making that 'every hour (or 15 minutes) I cross something off..'. :D

Crossing something off the list without doing it?

My type A personality just flailed. :D
