Today I am . . .
- Going to a friend’s staged reading, and bringing two canned goods, which is the price of admission.
- Happy that the birthday party that my son went to was a “no gifts” event. My son will have a sleepover with friends next weekend, and he spontaneously told me that that he wants his party to be no gifts as well.
- Thinking it’s funny that my son worked at his job yesterday, and then went to a sleepover afterwards. This boy is straddling the line between adulthood and childhood.
- Bringing my receipt back to Fred Meyer to get a refund on some sausage that tasted spoiled. They were marked down, as the sell-by date was imminent, but I had to run to the bathroom to spit it out. This was a first for me, as I always choose the marked-down food, and it’s never been rotten before. Blegh!
- Arranging to come by work one day this week to catch up on continuing education. I could do it at home, but I’d rather clock in and be paid for required work. Even if I have to drive 18 miles.
- Sitting near a south-facing window instead of turning on the overhead light.
- Not doing anything particularly different due to the holiday. My family has no traditions that are tied to Memorial day.
- Done reading Little Heathens, and looking forward to picking up my copy of Beverly Cleary’s A Girl From Yamhill when the libraries open again tomorrow. (I’ve read it before, but it’s been at least twenty years.)
- Clicking Swagbucks while writing this blog post. My goal is to earn a $25 PayPal gift card every month.
- Pleased that my fridge is full of work and school lunch necessities.
- Pretty much just taking it easy.
Now your turn. What are you doing today?
