Good Ideas and Bad Ideas

Good ideas:

1. Only doing the laundry every two weeks. It makes Robbie appreciate my contributions to our household chores more. And if I have to wear a pair of underwear twice, that’s a price I’m willing to pay.

2. Taking the first Monday of November off to work on my NaNoWriMo novel. This is an even better idea considering that as of Friday, I had not a single usable idea.

Bad ideas:

1. Sleeping all night on a heating pad to get my shoulder to uncramp. The act of holding the heating pad in place caused a worse cramp and I nearly strangled myself with the cord.

2. Stuffing an entire cupcake in my mouth because Mike at work dared me to. I felt vaguely like vomiting for the next 2 hours or so.

    I’m intrigued by the laundry every two weeks idea…but not too hot on the twice-worn undies. I’m going to have to weigh the pros and cons considerably before investing in this strategy. :}

    Picturesque and delightful. I love this post!

    My good and bad ideas yesterday:

    Good–bring puppy chow mix to teacher’s meeting to have something to share with friends during boredom

    Bad–drink caffeine and then have to sit in meeting needing to pee desperately

    Good–chasing friend’s ex-husband into parking lot to prevent him leaving before she got to say goodbye to her friends

    Bad–laughing loudly over how old friend’s ex’s new wife is and the fact that he now has a step grandchild (okay, fun but karmically evil)

  • I think it’s definitely time that you buy more underwear, then. It’s what works for me and my wife.

    Ugg, I’m constantly doing laundry. Between kids, sheets, towels, our clothes….I do a load or two a day. Problem with waiting so long is not the doing laundry…but the time to fold and put away. That takes hours.

    Happy Writing on Monday.
