We had planned to head to the beach today, but it began to rain and the downpour said No Dice to all that. So now I'm stuck with two 8 year olds and three teen girls (plus my girlfriend, thank God, who'll help to shoulder the burden.)
So what the hell are we going to do today?
I have a feeling we'll end up at the mall. I think that shopping is fun, although sometimes it can be over the top.
But with the rain and all there are other things that seem much more important. I'd really like to watch a Miyazake movie marathon, or read A Fine Balance (great book) or work on my own formats of my three books that have to go up on Amazon in July.
I'm halfway through the first one, so you tell me if that schedule seems reasonable at all.
I seriously need a serious workout because with the teens and the kids there have been a lot of snacks floating around and one or two of them might have found their way into my mouth.
Plus I did dishes last night (twice) and again this morning and all of a sudden it's like, woah, crockery mountain at the sink. Please explain that if you can, housekeeping gods. So I suppose what I'm saying here is that, as usual, I could use some time to clean my house.
Plus, of course I have to blog and tweet and post to facebook and read emails, but that is an ongoing Sysyphusean task.
Could also use a good pedicure, she said as she looked at the curved talons on the ends of her feet.
However, I think we'll end up at the mall. Well played, three teen-aged girls, well played.
