big plans, take 2

I was all talk a few weeks ago when I was losing my mind finishing up the school year. Here is an update on the things I was planning on doing before now:
  • Taking a long, luxurious bath in the new tub while listening to Water for Elephants (so I'm actually prepared to rejoin my book group in July): Have taken long, luxurious baths but keep forgetting to listen to the book on tape; I still have a week before the book group meeting. Must schedule more baths, with CD player.
  • Dinner at Marrakesh with marriage group friends: Check. It was super fun (even though I ordered the same thing I always do); not sure which was more interesting - watching the belly dancer or the 20-something guys next to us trying to not look directly at her in front of their dates.
  • Watching The Happening & The Incredible Hulk: Check for The Happening, though now I get why the opening scene is the girl putting a hairpin through her neck. Wish I had longer hair...
  • Beginning my couch potato adventure in TV series viewing: Check, am thoroughly enmeshed with The Sopranos, to the point of having a strange & slightly discomfiting crush on Tony.
  • Preparing little presents for BlogHer friends: I have them, but they are not yet properly wrapped. SO excited!
  • Packing for BlogHer: Will do it after next laundry day. It is going to be laborious as I do not want to check any bags because a) I'm cheap and b) I'll be taking BART to the hotel and would rather not look like a vagabond.
  • Packing for Europe: Well, I do only have about 6 weeks until we leave...I'll start after BlogHer.

Now I have to include planning for next school year in my summer to-do list (oh the irony). And I'm still working on that plan-meals-and-create-a-housework-schedule thing; it seemed so easy when I thought every day would be all open & carefree...

Thank you, amazing Anne Taintor.

I am always astounded by the amount of things you (seemingly, without effort) do.

No matter what the big plans entail, I know you will have them by the tail.

Did I just say 'entail' and 'tail' in the same sentence?

Ack. Back to putting the groceries away....

Is Bart anything like B.O.B.?

Sounds pretty ambitious. Remember, however....

Hard work might pay off later, laziness pays of NOW!

Make the best use of your summer so you can find the balance between carelessness and efficiency! It's all we can really hope for, right?

Water For Elephants is really quite good - you'll enjoy it if you get to it :-)

sounds like an excellent start.

I heart Incredible Hulk was INCREDIBLE!!

Just an FYI, I heard that Water For Elephants is not so great on tape (actually, I was told "it sucked"). I thought the book was really good - one of my favorites!

You're doing pretty well there. Think a luxury day would be great. Maybe I can get one in before BlogHer. I suppose I should think about packing hey. You're way ahead of me there.

If I fold myself up really small can you take me to BlogHer with you. Carry-on baggage, naturally. It gets hot down in cargo.

i am very mary said...

I am too paranoid to check luggage. Does this make us weird?

JCK said...

You are packing for BlogHer already?? God, that is intimidating... Are you taking BART from SFO? Or are you flying into San Jose and doing BART?

We should be able to recognize each other. Our hair is a very similar cut. My hair will be WHITE and yours brown.

My parents were involved with a marriage encounter group back in the day and it worked...they were married 59 years, til Mom passed.
