Blah, Blah, Blah Day

Happy Blah, Blah, Blah Day! Y'all know that's today, right? Have you made your blah, blah blah cake and have you sent your blah, blah, blah cards and have you decorated your blah, blah, blah house?

If you've done all of those things--if you've made and checked off your TO DO list--then you've celebrated Blah, Blah, Blah Day.

I've made TO DO lists for as long as I can remember. In high school, I'd make my TO DO list in the margins of each class's homework. In college, I had a TO DO notebook. Until the advent of the iPhone, I had a TO DO steno book on my desk for work stuff and at my house for my home stuff.  Now, I have the notes app on my phone.

Funny thing is that I've not completely checked off a TO DO list in a very, very long time ... quite possibly since I became pregnant. In fact, I'm pretty sure that my TO DO list in March of 2001 read something like this:

Take Pregnancy Test
Call Doctor

Since then, I've never actually completed a TO DO list.

Here are some things that are staples on my TO DO list:

  • exercise--I have good intentions, really I do!
  • take out bathroom trash--I have no idea how it gets emptied; no one in the house seems to actually do it.
  • sweep off front stoop--we have no trees, yet on any given day, we'll have three lawn bags full of leaves in front of our door.
  • clean out fridge--I've thrown away dozens of expired salad dressings and still there are always two bottles of bad Italian in the door.
  • organize my pictures--it's just not happening; it's impossible. I get them out, and then spend hours flipping through them in the exact say order I let them in the last time. 
  • commandeering a daily foot rub--I'm not picky anyone can rub my feet for me.
  • create a magic wand--duh.
  • check off everything on my TO DO list--just never happens, my friends!

What's on your TO DO list? I'd love to compare notes with you!
