How midlife listmaking differs:

Here is my midlife list for today:

1. Check daily horoscope and proceed thusly
2. Eat the last chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream icing for breakfast
3. Remember to take Ginko Baloba for memory enhancement
4. Try not to strangle The Ancient One
5. Write a blog posting (check!)
6. Organize logistics for errand-running:

a) don't honk or shoot the finger at fellow drivers
b) fill tank w/gas and ask attendant in sweet, Texas voice, to scrape off bird poop on roof
c) buy lottery tickets and scratch-offs for future fortune
d) have double cheeseburger with hickory sauce at Sonic
e) pick up Valium prescription

7. Tape Dancing With The Stars
8. Do yoga
9. Think about quitting smoking (nah.)
10. Buy carton of Winstons

As you can see, I have a very busy day. I'd better get to it!


Once again ditto on the above list except I wouldn't write it down because I don't have time to make lists. And I will be taping 'SAW' on HBO instead of Dancing With The Stars. I start to make a list of the garden tools I need but then I see that the buganvilla needs to be trimmed so that list has to wait. And then I was making a list of stuff I need to make vichisoise (sp?) but I saw we had the stuff to make a cheese souffle so I made that instead. Then I wanted to make a list of people I need to call for producing my documentary but Dr. Phil was on and then they all called me later anyway. So I guess I do have a list but it is a list of the lists I need to make. And that's about as far as it gets before KK throws it away because it was askew on the the table and she doesn't like messy table tops. I should go now and make a list of things I'm not going to do so I'll remember not to do them.
Put reading our blog every day on your list,
