I have not been blogging in a while again. Life, being sick, being sick of life. It’s been a pretty blah last week and I can’t help but blame my lack of preoccupation. You would think that I could be preoccupied because of the number of books I have to read and the things I want to cook but those aren’t truly pressing are they? I work under pressure, which is a terrible trait.
Which is why I am sitting in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at 9am in the morning, with my laptop, looking like the very person I used to roll my eyes at; I am going to list out what my duties and objectives are for this week here, and in my planner (that hasn’t planned a single thing since I finished the semester). Perhaps by making a proper list and publishing it for the world to see, I’ll be able to get a better handle on all things:
Pay the bills
Get the license for the dogs
Put up the Christmas lights
Set aside books and clothes to be recycled
Make risotto for dinner- figure out what sides
Put up tree ornaments- Tree completed
Bake cake (KIV)
Start Christmas cookies baking
Send Georgia’s Christmas exchange package
The Hobbit (!)
Collect Mamma Mia tickets in the morning
Mamma Mia- 8pm @KLCC
Now that I write all of that down, it looks like nothing much is going on, which is completely true. I don’t have much going on but as usual, that means all the little things are going on: laundry, chores, watching the dogs, reading. I like to think that I’m freaking free but that’s not really true.Domesticity may seem like it’s simple but believe me a heck of a lot of things go into being ‘domestic’.
Anyway, I am making this particular recipe for risotto for dinner tonight. Any ideas on what’s a good side for risotto? I have no idea.
