What I Should Be Doing Right Now

- Folding laundry.
- Wrapping presents.
- Ordering presents.
- Watering the Christmas tree.
- Cleaning the kitchen, the living room, the bedroom, the den, and my disgustingly messy car.
- Taking out the garbage, which is overflowing and has resulted in me putting a bag on the counter to house the excess.
- Contacting someone at my son's preschool regarding the upcoming auction.
- Taking a shower.
- Updating baby books.
- Putting photos in photo albums.
- Ordering photos still stuck on our camera.
- Following up about this summer's Cape Cod rental with the realtor who seems to refuse to call me back.
- Rolling over my two separate 401ks into an IRA (I have been meaning to do this for two years and am beginning to think I might just never do it).
- Figuring out how to get my kindle books onto our Ipad (thanks, Jodifur, for the tip!)
- Updating our address spreadsheet for holiday cards.
- Printing out address labels for holiday cards.
- Filling out Casey's paperwork for school (which he is starting January 2, aaaaaaa!).
- Scheduling an appointment for Braden to get his Hepatitis A vaccine, which I apparently never got for him and now the Board of Health says he can't come back to school in January unless he gets it.  Oops.
- Paying bills.
- Opening a week's worth of mail, which probably includes more bills.
- Taking my calcium pills, which I just realized I forgot to take this morning, but it would involve me getting up to get a glass of water, and I'm thinking it's not going to happen.
- Probably a thousand other things I can't even think of.

So what am I doing instead?

I am laying in bed, in my pajamas, with a computer on my lap, typing this post.  Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is on in the background.  And once I'm done with this, I plan to read Behind the Beautiful Forevers, a book about street life in Mumbai which I started last February but lost interest in and am now resurrecting because the New York Times says it is one of the best books of 2012 and I figure I should give it another chance.

Life at home isn't always so bad, you know?  T minus 62 minutes until Casey wakes up...


  1. take the garbage out!

  2. The kindle thing is easy. Download the kindle for ipad app. Register with the same email address as your kindle. When it "whisper syncs" (dumbest name ever is syncing ever loud?) your books MAGICALLY show up.

  3. can't wait to hear how the book is (by the way i'm reading wild right now and want to go backpacking :) - thanks for the suggestion!
