Do you like making lists? I think I should take a note from Cristina of The Frankenstein House and make more "this is like that" lists rather than to-do lists full of stupid shit I never get done. There is probably a much longer post in my future about how I fancy myself a do-it-yourselfer, or at least a makeshift apprentice of actual do-it-yourselfers I admire so much. Really though, my computer, phone, journal, and any and all scraps of paper in my house are filled with things I think I should do or at one point even wanted to do. Like buying frames for the prints I bought on my birthday. My birthday is in February. Today is August 7th.
I almost made another useless list today, but instead I think I will make a list of all the wonderful things I did that wouldn't have made it to the to-do list. Because I actually had quite a lovely day.

I started the day intending to get a lot of work done. I have this spreadsheet at work that's killing me, and I wanted to finish it. However, I chose to enjoy myself instead and am working hard to ignore the knot in my stomach that is trying to tell me LIES. It is a LIE that I should spend my Sunday finishing a spreadsheet. I will wake up crazy early tomorrow to get a jump on the day as a result, but for the rest of today (my today ends in about 45 minutes) I am happy to have accomplished 19 verrrrrry important to-dos.
