We are up to our nostrils in busyness. I am scheming to get more time to either do stuff or to not do stuff. I think this will work:
1 Stop sleeping.
2 Stop eating. Eating wastes time, especially eating food that has no curry in it.
3 Surgically alter right index finger into a needle, so that I can sew on the go, wherever I am, even while walking. Surgically alter left hand into a gluegun.
4 Buy this clock.
5 Stop blogging.
6 Stop emailing.
7 Live on an aeroplane that keeps flying Westwards (or is it Eastwards?) so that I am always several hours ahead.
8 Boycott daylight savings.
9 Stop cleaning the house, and any chore that has similarly low returns and high repetition factor.
10 Stop cooking. Bulk-buy everyone those little packet meals that astronauts eat on spaceships. Surely Costco has those? Costco has everything.
11 Speaking of Costco, stop doing the grocery rounds. Plant a garden and have everyone harvest whatever they like to go with their Astronaut Snack Packs. Revolutionize the family diet to include novel but healthy options like Green Pea Juice and Tomato Torte with Whipped Jalepeno Frosting.
12 Stop making lists.
Explanation: we are having a garage sale this weekend. It has taken over our universe. We have so much baby stuff in storage that it is ridiculous. And - to add insult to injury - I unearthed old books. I used to read! Wow.
P.S. I made three plaid things for Emily since that denim skirt. I did it by ordering in pizza (no time to procure Astronaut Snack Packs). See, my list works.
