(virtual) list of things to do today

First of all, I’m sorry for the ranting blogs. I don’t like being upset and I don’t like writing angry blogs. Sometimes people just make you mad, though, and venting about it is good.

Now then. I’m off today and it’s a little after 6am and I am very awake. Matt left about 10 minutes ago and will probably be gone for 12 or 13 hours again. At least he had yesterday off and was able to sleep all day. He sure likes to sleep.

So here’s what I’m going to do today.
1. Clean up the house
a. Make the bed and straighten the bedroom
b. Clean the litter boxes
c. Most of the rest of the house is clean, but maybe I’ll wash some dishes

2. Do some laundry

3. Go to B&C to do the Sysco order and maybe some other miscellaneous cleaning — just as long as I’m there about 30-45 minutes. Have to make up some time to get to 40 hours this week….

4. Start new crochet project. Helen (Matt’s mom) showed me Ravelry.com, which is a knit/crochet community and has a ton of free patterns. I’m going to try to make a cardigan next. It’s a big move, but I think I’m ready. The capelet I made last time turned out nicely (except that it’s a little too small for me, but whatever).

5. This might be all I need to do. Oh yeah. I forgot. I need to exercise. This will either be yoga or cardio; I much prefer the yoga but the cardio is very good for me. And always seems to go by faster. We’ll see.

6. After working out, there will be showering.

And now that I know what I need to do today, I’m going to go back to not doing it; possibly go back to sleep, possibly see what’s on Netflix.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.
