The assignment: Put on a timer for five minutes and just write.
And this is what I wrote, unedited.
Clearly, I have a lot to do because my stream of consciousness is a long to-do list!!
Here it is:
My husband’s birthday party this Friday, tons of work to be done for that.
The house needs cleaning and those weeds need pulling. Will the party guests notice the weeds?
My husband’s sister and mother are coming on Thursday and staying through the weekend. Is the bedding clean. Are the guestrooms ready?
Do we have enough tonic for the gin?
The bedding needs to be changed from the last guests. That means laundry today.
I think I have gin AND tonic, somewhere.
Our trip to San Diego and BlogHer looms ahead the weekend after that. We leave on Tuesday. The car needs the oil changed and to be cleaned out. What am I going to wear?!?!
I need to give myself a pedicure RIGHT NOW.
Oh, and a new German Shepherd puppy arrives in just a few days. WERE WE CRAZY?!?!?!?!?!
The area rug needs pulling from the living room before the party and definitely before that puppy arrives.
I need an office put together right now! Working here at the kitchen counter is beginning to hurt my knee. I’ve got to get to that today. I hope I don’t get called into work today. But I need the money for our trip. Ugh.
I have too much on my plate right now, but eat it all I must. Cram it in and swallow it whole. Every last bit.
