Just a little funk

The things I should be doing:

Making a chocolate cake: one for school lunches and, lets face it, one for me to eat so I don’t feel deprived
Making a you-beaut new vegetable garden
Replying to 1,897 emails
Downloading photos
Sewing with my fabulous SF/NY fabrics
Getting the roast beef ready for the lunch I got SH and the kids ramped about yesterday
Doing the school uniform washing
And the towels
Finding, buying and reading the book I’m supposed to be discussing at bookclub on Wednesday
Marketing my book
Writing a new one
Wrting anything
Eeew vacuuming
Changing the linen
Which, of course means, more washing
Getting the kids to clean up their rooms
Cleaning up my room
Remembering how to blog

The things I want to do

Believe it or not, I actually want to do many of the things on the above list on some cellular level.  Well, 5 of them anyway.  But overriding that feeling is the desire to lie about and gaze out the window and flick aimlessly through a magazine.  With some chocolate cake.

I think I’m ovulating.

Sorry, guys.

About Alyson

I am a 45+ chick. I live in the country with 3 almost (apparently) adult children teenagers, 1 husband and many animals. Here's the thing: The black dog also hangs with me occasionally and, thank the baby cheeses, life is not perfect. That's OK, because I work hard to be a glass half-full person and I can't lie! I write to help my head, heart and humor...and I tell myself 'I've got this!'


  1. You could make the chocolate cake, thus crossing one thing off the top list, and then eat it while gazing out the window and flicking through a magazine, thus crossing three things off the second list …
