The daily to-do: Friday September 30

Last day of September! Sunny out at the moment, but probably one of the last few days of real sun for many months…I should take advantage of this. Sunlight feels like possibility.

This morning was weird, because I took Bear to the train station as usual, but the train ended up being delayed and ultimately cancelled, and then the next train was delayed due to the confusion. We waited at the station for over an hour. Poor Bear. He has a lot he’s trying to get done today, and if we had gotten up 30 minutes earlier, none of that would have happened. As it was, he got to work much, much later than planned. šŸ˜¦ And I had a late morning, followed by much procrastinating. I wanted to relax and play a game this morning, but instead I kept reading entry after entry of Courtney King-Dye’s blog. It’s been a few years since I’ve caught up with her, and a lot has changed (not the least of which is that she now has 2 kids)!

Ahaha I just got interrupted by a noise coming from the front of the house, and Cosmo growling. I got up to look out the front window, and instantly realized what was making the sound: through the window I could see long tail feathers and a bird butt hanging down. There was a bird perched above the window! I went into the kitchen and climbed onto the counter so I could look out the garden window, which looks out onto the doorway, and I saw it was a Northern Flicker, which is a big woodpecker that is extremely common around here. He saw me looking at him, and we eyed each other for a minute before he flew away. šŸ˜€

Anyway, as I was saying, weird morning, procrastination, and now sunny weather which reminds me that I need to get going. So many things I need and want to do. Yesterday I felt it too, but I didn’t end up doing anything beyond the necessities. I hope to remedy that today, somehow. It’s one of those things where there’s so much to do, and time to do some of it, that I can’t choose and end up doing nothing. Analysis paralysis? Something like that. Anyway, I should get to the list. This will be a list of things on my mind that I want to do soon or need to do today; I certainly won’t even try to accomplish it all today.Ā 

  • feed Cadenza
  • walk Cosmo
  • short run or HIIT or some sort of cross-training
  • do more BWIP work (add link to photographer, make vendor page)
  • PCO stuff:
    • write blog posts (continue to write about the platforms)
    • possibly make a survey about level of involvement
    • figure stuff out about candidates; possibly hold or join a doorbelling endeavor
    • (I really really need to figure how to use this VoteBuilder system thingy)
  • job stuff:
    • continue to work on new resumes for those two jobs
    • apply to those two jobsĀ ugh they might not even be available anymore
    • look at new Indeed stuff
    • reply to the Daily Source email
  • buy GeekGirlCon tix; possibly reserve doggy boarding and a hotelĀ THIS WEEKEND
  • schedule service on the Subaru
  • go to the grocery store
  • go to the pet store
  • do yard work (weeding in the back and cut BLACKBERRY)
  • HOUSE WORK:
    • laundry
      • goods
      • stinkies
      • running
      • sheets
      • towels
    • DUST AND VACUUM
    • clean kitchen, scrub kitchen floors
    • other stuff less important for now: toilets, shower

My plan: quickly do some of the BWIP update stuff, just get it out of the way! Then maybe go to the store, then walk Cosmo, then feed Cadenza, then run/ work out, then…well, in reality probably just poop out then, but what I should do is get to the cleaning. Or the job stuff. One of those two. Oy, I’m exhausted already just thinking about it all. I wish I had started earlier! >.<
