Which Do You Do?!? 

. . . The Day Looms Large Ahead Of You -- What Are You Going To Do?!?!?!?

You know that funky piece of plastic and wires is sitting in the corner -- mocking you . . .

Phone is definitely not to color or scale, or any other resemblance of any phone located in the house!!

So, how do you approach the day?

  • You bound out of bed as soon as the alarm rings, or the telephone rings, or the dogs bark -- whichever comes first;
  • You stagger out of bed when you realize the day is slipping away and you're getting anything accomplished;
  • You slide out of bed because your stomach is making some serious "Feed Me, Seymour" sounds that are only getting louder; or
  • You actually are going to tackle the house filled with cat hair, dog hair, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, dusting tasks and much, much, more.

Okay, you're out of bed -- still half asleep but, . . . mostly vertical.     You "know" that a phone call is expected today -- you also know that chances are 30% / 70% on a good day that it will happen, and you wouldn't make book with any Vegas businessman with those odds . . . not good odds in my favor!     So, the question arises again, how do you approach the day?

  • Do you work around the house all day, hoping and praying for the phone to ring, so you can act all surprised that it did?;
  • Do you approach your day like any other day that work needs to be done -- if errands are called for -- you jump in the car and run them without a second thought?;
  • Do you do everything possible within the confines of the house, hoping the call comes in before you have to run errands, often dallying on some to make them last a little longer than usual?; or
  • Do you do what needs to be done without a thought to the telephone, make out a list of errand items, grab the cell phone (just in case) and head out for errands when the time is right?

Aside from housework, I have my office work that I have slacked on, my s.o.'s office work that I have slacked on, several deadlines that I missed with editors (that I was able to get extensions due to my car accident and injuries).     Just now, I fell asleep in my desk chair -- just **poof** -- off to dreamland.

I know -- logically --- what I NEED to do to ready the house for the weekend.     I also know -- logically (and sentimentially) -- what I WANT to do today.     I think I'll "compromise" and think about it for a while . . . I'm going to take a nice, cozy cat-nap in a sunbeam and work out all the details for the rest of the day -- sounds like a plan, 'eh???

This Author's Profile

♪   I am

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
