Two telephone calls to California: Alice, Kate.
Three here: Patty, Jack, Douggie.
One visit to car repair.
One visit to the office, and one e-mail from there to the outside world: Carlos, Gustavo.
One e-mail within Maringouin: Mickey.
Touch up paint in the bedroom.
Finish and mail New Years’ cards: at minimum to Sally, Ken, Becky, Marilyn and Katrina.
Renew membership in LASA, ILLI, IAS, and maybe more — I am tired of scrimping on this.
Sew on one button.
Mend one seam.
Find that writing group.
Take that dress to be altered.
Finally dye that other dress.
Yoga tonight and tomorrow, 5:30.
Consider going out of town.
This is a really small list compared to what I really have to do but look how large it is already, and there are regular work things I am going to do as well during this time and also regular recreational things. But yes, you can see I am dragging if I am making lists like this — this post was actually planned to be a commitment to do at least one practical thing on my own behalf today.
