I'll Do It Saturday
A Saturday Warrior
Where did I put that list?
[Saturday: the day we plan to do all those things we should have done the previous five days of the week.]
Well, it's Saturday again. Opportunity is staring us in the face. We're up at 5:30 for that early start that should guarantee success.
Now where did I put that list?
Skip the list for now, a hearty breakfast should have been the first item . Two eggs, a toasted bagel with raspberry jam and plenty of milk. Still dark outside, so I better add an afternoon nap, if I can find the list. Probably it's mixed in there with the mail piled up on the desk.
The cat wants to go out, but he got in a fight last time and aged two of his remaining six lives, and seems equally happy to stay inside for now. Besides, it's dark outside and who knows what could be waiting out there to attack him again. I'll let him out later.
Fix the flap on the upstairs toilet, so the back scratcher doesn't have to hold up the float to save on the water bill. Surely that's on the list somewhere, but the hardware store isn't open yet, and I'm a klutz anyway. Make sure it's added to the list though.
Better check the credit cards and see when those are due, or I could read through the pile of mail for them. I'd better balance the checking account first so I know what I can afford to pay on them. I should have a budget. That's a good weekend's project. I don't think it's on the list though.
What teams are playing this weekend? I wonder what happened to the team last night. The radio would tell me, but that would be a distraction. I better stick to the tasks at hand. I'm already falling behind, and still no list.
I'll dump the trash and start with a clean slate.
Wow! The day's newspaper was out there, and two things caught my eye: the latest local gyrations, and the fact that there are two big (I mean BIG!) games this afternoon and evening. I better plan to watch the news for the latest, and get those games scheduled into that list I'm looking for.
Oh, oh! The joy of my life is awake now. I won't need to look for my list. she has one all ready for me.
