My Betsy-Tacy list came down with a case of the doldrums so someone started up this Snaphot MeMe to get the creative juices (and the posts) rolling again.
I too seem to have a case of the doldrums – to much to do, not enough time to do it. Way to much stuff piled up at work – the un-cataloged books , science equipment and math manipulatives are taking over the back room. My E-bay office is a mess and I’ve 12 boxes of unlisted books in the garage. The garden is quickly being overrun with weeds and needs a couple of hours of serious attention. The phone keeps ringing and ringing and ringing. The neighbor’s dogs have a bad case of the non stop barks.
I’ve got the doldrums when it comes to blog postings too, so I’m going to borrow my list servs MeMe.
WHAT I'M READING
Her Little Majesty: The Life of Queen Victoria by Carolly Erickson. Found this in a scruffy little thrift shop in Phoenix. I’m enjoying it so much that I’m going to keep it. Not that I need another royalty biography but I’m such a sucker for these kind of books. .
WHAT I'M WEARING
Red long sleeved shirt, kaki pants, Sperry Topsiders sneakers and my new Frank Lloyd Wright watch. I dress for comfort, not for fashion. Earrings have been removed. Today’s choice was dangly purple crystals. All of sudden I’m wearing earrings again – the kids are school have noticed.
WHAT I HAD FOR DINNER
Baked potato soup with bacon, green onions and cheddar cheese. I make a very good baked potato soup if I say so myself.
HOW I'M FEELING
Tired – standard feeling these days. Getting up each morning is getting harder and harder. Is this old age or is this another symptom of the doldrums?
WHAT I'D LIKE RIGHT NOW
Cape Cod White Cheddar Cheese Popcorn. That stuff is addictive.
WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING
Packing Amazon and E-Bay books so I can mail them tomorrow. Or listing books. Or re-listing all the books in my E-bay store that unlisted themselves earlier this week. Or read professional journals. Or sample books. Or folding the laundry. Or making my lunch. It’s so depressing to still be packing a lunch box at the age of 53.
WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Going garage sailing. And perhaps planting some herbs and flowers in my front bed so the yard won’t look so weed infested.
WHAT I DID LAST WEEKEND
Packed books and spent 4 hours to the phone talking to people in India as we tried to figure out why my new Palm Pilot wouldn’t sync with my Outlook Calendar. Mercury is so retrograde. And worked the school carnival. Weekend, what weekend?
WHAT I'M LISTENING TO
Boston Legal, with one ear, My Beloved is addicted. I can take it or leave it, but Candace Bergen is a pleasant change from the usual TV anorexic bimbo.
I’m not going to pass this MeMe on to anyone specific but if you want to do a snapshot of yourself, then take it and run with it!
