Thursday Thirteen #7

At two I have a conference call - other than that... I have the entire day to myself! At home, all alone... just me and my thoughts... or my bed, whichever is more inviting! :) So to celebrate I'm writing a TT on the Thirteen things that I want to do today.

Thirteen Things I want to do today...

1…. Having a huge breakfast without any rushing! That's right... I'm going to take my own sweet time! Doesn't sound like a big deal, but if you eat on the run every day, you know how great this is.

2.... I'm going to stroll through the blogging world and catch up on all the things I missed in the last couple of weeks. Yeah, looking at the dishes in front of me says I should be doing something else - but since the dishes can't talk I figure nobody will ever know if they get done now or later! Heeeeeheeeee! :)

3.... Finish my critique partners edits. Yeah. I'm seriously committing myself to getting this done today! Before she fires me! :)

4.... The edits should take me till about... 12. Which just coincidentally takes us to NewsRadio - Dave tries to stay calm when Lisa's ex-boyfriend comes to town. :) I bought some chips and popcorn yesterday, and I plan on planting my big butt in front of the TV and enjoying every moment of the show.

5.... 12:30ish... taking an afternoon nap. Yeah, that's right! :) Nothing better than an afternoon nap. Especially knowing that I'm working Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. So yeah, I'm definitely going to appreciate that nap. :)

6.... Huh... this is getting hard... I guess this was a bad idea... I really don't plan on doing 13 things today.

7.... The dishes are still staring at me... and I'm still ignoring them, because instead I could reading a book. I don't even know what that's like. I wonder if I can still read.

8.... Go pick up the mail waiting for me at the post office... but that requires me getting dressed out of my pajama's and getting in my car and driving down to the post office. I don't know if that's going to happen, because in all honesty I don't see myself getting dressed today. It feels like an all pajama day!

9.... On that note... I hope they never invent (which, wait a minute they have) the camera phones. God forbid everyone in Canada and the US can see into my house and stare at my dirty dishes and pajama's during my conference call! As long as I can hear them... it should be good enough!

10.... Pretend to take notes while I'm on my call... maybe even say a word here or there. Maybe. Maybe not.

11.... After the call... sit back, relax, and try to forget everything that I learned or was said... at least until I need it on Friday. As far as I'm concerned my brain does not need to be turned on today. Hopefully, my boss will agree with me when I make this same excuse for not knowing the answers to her questions. :)

12.... Maybe make something for dinner.... maybe just order something. Depends on how much energy I wasted on doing nothing all day. ;)

13.... Yeah, so the one thing I should be doing is writing, but what's the point if tomorrow I go back to 13 hour work days? Yeah, I'll get a break soon... but not worth me catching up to where I am because by then there won't even be any time to do any edits... So I apologize to all the writer's shaking their heads, but instead I'm just going to slack off and relax... maybe even get to those dishes. Probably not. :)

Happy TT everyone! What are you doing today?

Sounds like my kind of day!! Sadly, my #1 is chasing 2 yr old Spencer around the house. I can't wait til naptime!!

Vicky said...

Wylie - me neither! So excited! ;)

Angela/SciFiChick said...

You get to take a nap? I'm jealous already...

Annie said...

I took a mental health day on Monday and made it an all day in pajamas day! Hope you're able to be a Lady of Leisure today!!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Yeah, I wouldn't get dressed if I didn't have to, either. Fortunately, today's an easy day -- we're waiting for friends to come over and then I'll nap, too, after they leave.

Hopefully the rain won't start while I'm napping -- I've got windows open all over the house.

Happy TT and thanks for visiting West of Mars!

Christine said...

I want to be home!!! I'm glad you have a chance to relax. It sounded like you've had a crazy few weeks.

Amy Ruttan said...

You so funny.

I would love to have a day like that. Alas, I am at work, doing boring litigation type things.

Happy TT, you lie a bed you!

AGK said...

Wish I'd have done #1, and on #2, I think I'll do a bit of this too ;)

Have a great day!
Happy TT!

Michelle said...

I'd like this kind of day - truly. Of course I just got a call from the pediatrician that we weren't schedule to see until May but they have a cancellation today and don't I want to go? Well of course I do but, crap, that changes my entire day. Have fun relaxing!

Elle Fredrix said...

It's a great day in T.O. to be inside. I'm sitting here in my home office listening to the wind and the rain buffet the side of the house.

I'm seriously jealous about that afternoon nap you're taking!

Anonymous said...

Have a great afternoon nap! Life's sounded so crazy for you -- enjoy your decompression time. :)

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Rene said...

I went to the gym. I thought that was ambitious enough.

amy said...

I hope you had a great day..I love having things to look forward to!

spyscribbler said...

Wow! I need about ten days of those days to recover from the last year! Then I need another twenty, to catch up. Phew.

Sounds heavenly! I hope it was wonderful for you!

Happy TT!

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Don't feel even a moment of guilt--everyone needs a day like that!

Happy restful T13!

Staying in PJ's all day and a nap...sounds fabulous to me!!!
