Writer's Workshop: Just a Day, Just an Ordinary Day

Writer's Workshop
Big thanks to Kat for giving me a reason to make a list. I always appreciate that. Now if I don't accomplish all of the tasks, I have this list staring me in the face at the end of the day to make me feel like a big fat stinkin' failure! You're lucky you're pretty, Kat. ;)

today i will be Pictures, Images and Photos

You can buy this print from Here

(I've had this link up the whole time... just thought I'd bring more attention to it! This is not my quote or print! It's pretty popular over on Etsy, so those of you who've commented about you like or interest... go check it out.)

Today I will:

1) Wake up and Pray~ I've been trying really hard to start my day off this way lately.
2) Workout~ Erghh... if someone could do this for me, that'd be great!
3) Feed a family friend's cats~ These cats are freakishly large and spoiled. And they meow to each other when I'm there. I think they're talking about me.
4) Clean my car~ IT'S SO TIME.
5) Get an oil change~ I wouldn't be cleaning my car if I didn't need an oil change.
6) Send the owner of the tea house the menu choices you guys picked for me!~ Thanks!
-Mixed Greens Salad
-Chicken salad, Roasted Turkey, Open face tomato & basil, Egg salad
7) Spend way too long on the phone with someone from Lexmark trying to figure out where the scanner software is so I can scan photos to my computer~ I had to get a new printer & decided to go ahead and get one with a copier & scanner. I managed to scan a picture... but it just printed onto paper. Hrmm, I'm lost.
8) Return 1st printer I bought before I found a better deal on the current new one~ The first one was just a printer. Second one is 3 in 1 and $5 cheaper. Whhhaaat?
9) I really should sew~ I just haven't felt like it the last few days.
10) Ship packages~ Orders & a gift for a friend who is having her little girl, Reese any day now!

The truth is, the list isn't Kat's fault... it's mine. I could have gone a very different route with this post. I could have made it into something beautiful. I just don't have it in me tonight!(I write late at night/early in the morning!) I spent about 2 1/2 hours trying to get the new printer hooked up and communicating with my computer. I was at the point where I felt like throwing the computer across the room & had actually convinced myself it may help, when I finally found the link I needed to download online to make the computer and printer play nice. Amen. Now... figuring out how to scan to my computer! That should be a fun one! If any of you have a Lexmark X2600 and know what I'm talking about, spill the beans and I'll be your BFF! Lucky you, I know. Psh! I will also send you a little surprise in the mail! That's how badly I don't want to talk to the Lexmark people!
Tomorrow is De-funk Your Fashion Friday!
Sooo come back and see the pretties!

8 love notes:

  1. I'm pretty sure you somehow stole MY should do list for today. But now that you'll be doing those things like cleaning out the car, getting the oil change, sewing, returning items, and shipping packages, I don't have to, right?????

  2. you just reminded me I need to get an oil change in my car's been a while!

  3. Visiting from Mama Kat's. I like the post, sounds like a busy enough day. Oooh...and I love fashion (though you wouldn't know it to look in my closet) I'll be back to check you out again soon!

  4. I love your little bird quote!!! Do you mind if I steal it?

    Good luck on your day plan!

  5. cute quote. I am already failing on my list, good luck with yours. visiting from mama Kat's.

  6. hi sweetie! love the list! did it all get done?? :)

  7. I hate technology that doesn't work the way I want it to work when I plug it in. Reading instructions and hinking is not something I'm privy to. :)

  8. I may need to do some of those things myself... just that I dont have a car anymore and everyone at any store pretty much piss me off.

    One, day I will try. Maybe even praying... muahahaha right.


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
