I’ve been giving this whole “blog” thing a thought for some time. I decided that today is the day. I don’t know how that happened, exactly. But here it is. I just tried not to give it much thought. Which is one of my problems. I over think everything. I’ve realized lately that I give much more thought than action to my problems. But when you really think about all the things that everyone tells you that you should be doing, any given day would look something like this:
5:45 a.m. ~ Turn off alarm clock. Get out of bed. Do yoga to warm up for 15 minutes, then run around the block several times. While showering, exfoliate body with natural sugar body scrub and detoxify with facial mask. Shave legs and moisturize following.
8:00 – 5:00 ~ Work. During lunch hour, go to Whole Foods to get ingrediants for dinner. Don’t forget to stop by Library to return books on organic gardening and Fung Shui decorating. On way home, stop and get your oil changed, tires rotated and everything that should be, properly “lubed.”
5:45 – 6:00 ~ Pay some attention to your children. Separately, and together.
6:00 – 7:00 ~ Prepare meal from fresh ingredients, very little preservatives or additives, and be sure to cut your potatoes into the shapes of celestial beings to ensure that your little ones will eat them willingly. Never force your children to eat things on their plates, but rather “entice” them to eat right.
7:00 – 8:00 ~ Do laundry and set out the family’s clothing for the following morning. If necessary, bathe the dog. (But only after the children have bathed. Then, thoroughly clean the tub with antibacterial cleanser.)
8:00 ~ Sit down and write a letter to a close friend or family member whom you’ve not been in contact with lately. Traditional mail shows that you are truly thinking of someone.
8:30 ~ Prepare your lunch for tomorrow, making enough arugula for the children to take along to school with them, as well.
8:45 ~ Read a story to each of your children. Make sure the subject matter is appropriate for each child.
9:30 ~ Take your vitamins, and go to bed. Going to bed early ensures that you get the rest you need for tomorrow.
[By the way, if this is the kind of crap you like to read in a blog post, you won’t find anymore of that here.]
So, I think it better to not think too much (or listen too much or read too much) about what you should be doing, and just DO what you should be doing.
So maybe today’s the day. We’ll see. I’ll give that some thought.
