No Such Thing as Tomorrow, Only, One, Two, Three, Go!
Like I said before, I got the Martin Luther King holiday off work yesterday. John always makes fun of me because every time I have a day off by myself, I have a list of a bout 900 things I want to do in that time. He used to worry that I'd be upset with myself, for not getting even half of the crap done, but now he knows I don't work like that. I'm excited to do all of the stuff I can't normally get done when I work all day, and I'm curious to see what I actually will get done. If I don't get 894 of those things done? Eh, it will all be waiting for me on another day.
So, yesterday started out great. I woke-up, made some tea and read my book for a while, made a grocery list, and got ready to head out to buy things to make eggplant parmesan for Monday's dinner and then stuff to make a pot of curried red lentil soup to go with the hummus and falafel pita sandwiches I was planning on making for dinner Tuesday. I was so excited at the prospect of a whole Monday at home, when I tried to start my car and all I got was crazed clicking noises. Damn! It was dead. I always thought if I had a new car, those kinds of things wouldn't happen in frigid temps. Apparently, I was lying to myself.
Oh well, I did some things around the house, made some lunch and watched House Hunters while I was eating it and texted Stinky to see if she had jumper cables. She did not, but she said she was free until 3, when she was going to meet her sister to work-out. Sweet! I tried the car a couple of times, because I'm a sucker for false hope.
After we got back from running errands, I read a little more, and then worked on some more stick people running drawings. I finally got it to the loopy flowy running stick person I wanted, so I painted it over the background I painted on Sunday. It is the first time I ever did a painting for me. It should match our living room perfectly.
Anyway, I did get the eggplant parmesan and the red lentil soup made and not much else. Eh, I'd hate to run out of things to do on my time off anyway....
