the best laid plans . . .

so today . . . i was going to get organized! i have been thinking about it for a while, and thought that today was the day i was going to do it. i kind of had a plan--work upstairs until noon, break for lunch, work downstairs while watching a movie or catching up on my tivo during the afternoon, and then after dinner plan for future organizing. that was my plan, but like most of my plans to get organized, it failed. i should have known it was doomed when i was still up at midnight last night! but i had been watching tv and just about the time i was ready to go to bed, milo jumped up beside me and snuggled in and fell asleep. milo is our very chubby chihuahua mix dog and, while he is very affectionate (meaning he lives to lick us!) he rarely falls asleep in my lap. so this was a treat, and he was so sweet, i just couldn't disturb him.

milo loves to sleep! he can sleep anywhere, but he prefers cushy softness . . .
usually milo has to share my lap with my computer.
but that meant that i was up later than i had planned, which meant that i slept in pretty late this morning. by the time i was up and around and had eaten my mcdonald's cinnamon melts for breakfast, it was actually almost time for lunch. so i revised my plan--forget working upstairs; just start downstairs. but first i wanted to check on the location of my new computer (see yesterday's blog). that meant getting online, and once that happened an hour just flew by! yikes! i needed to get moving if i was going to accomplish anything today. but then diandra asked if i wanted to go to the mall with her to get some shoes, so of course i said yes! (now before you start thinking that all i do is shop, you should know that diandra and i have some of our best conversations while walking around the mall. sometimes we don't even buy anything!!) TWO HOURS LATER we came home, only to have rollie say, "let's go get something to eat." so out we went again. by the time we got home from dinner and errands, it was really too late to think about organizing anything, and so here i am--still disorganized! however, the day was not a total waste. i did get 8 loads of laundry done (and mostly folded and put away,) i did spend some time with my family, and i did get a new pair of shoes (thank you, diandra!)
