Snapshot

Reading: Purple Cow by Seth Godin and Calm, Cool, and Adjusted by Kristin Billerbeck (re-reading)

Music in my head: Do I Make You Proud? Taylor Hicks. Sorry. I have NO control over that one. No idea how it got there, or why it won’t. go. away. already.

Drinking: big tall glass of water

Wishing: I could sleep past 7 sometime soon. Correction: I wish little boys would do that, because then it would be NO problem for me at all.

Considering: extra big washer/dryer purchase. My dryer takes 3 hours, and my mom says that’s bad. It’s probably only slightly better than taking a hair dryer to a wet load of laundry, now that i think about it. Or exhaling big deep hot breaths.

Feeling: aah. who cares? feelings are overrated.

Goals: pfft.

To Do List: endless. or so it seems. I can’t remember. i intentionally left the actual list in the car so i wouldnt’ have to look at it tonight.

Hours gloriously spent in bathtub tonight: 1

Things Accomplished: 0

Challenge: PIck at least 3 of the above categories and list your "Snapshot" in the Comments.  Ew. I just re-read mine, and i am seriously in a funk. Your turn!

I’m following Mary’s lead and posting my answers on my blog too.

Three hours!!!??? Arrgh. I thought mine was bad at 1 1/2 hours. You need a new washer and dryer. Go get yourself a really nice set…the kind that can wash an entire king-size comforter. Go on…you know you want to. :)

[Random]You know, I’ve been a fan of Kenmore washers and dryers in general, but lately their marketing boggles the mind. There’s this HUGE emphasis on the fact that you can get them in colors now, so, you know, “you can put them out in your living room like you’ve always dreamed and they’ll match your couch, because who wants to hide them in a back room?” Um…okaayy… “Oh, and by the way, it’s not really important, but we guess we’ll mention that the dryer dries as fast as the washer washes.” Excuse me?!? You have a dryer that dries that fast, and you’re trying to sell me on Orange, Red, or Biscuit?? Sheesh…[/Random]

On the dryer thing…I had the same problem with a past dryer. What I found out was that the vent coming out of my dryer was full of lint…After it was cleaned…it did a whole lot better.

Reading: Naked by David Sedaris, Will in the World by Stephen Greenblatt, and your blog.

Music in my head: the nephew song (Dream a Little Dream) and stuff from the movie Dreamgirls

Drinking: always water

Wishing: construction work could be finished with a magic wand, that I had a magic wand, and that winter was not cold

Considering: whether or not it is reasonable to live by the personal rule “I will not go outside if the temperature is not above 10 degrees” given that I live in New England.

Feeling: glad of the feeling in my fingers and toes. Warm. Toasty. These are not to be taken lightly.

Goals: finish my half dozen outstanding knitting projects. It should not take a year to knit a sweater.

To Do List: literally 4 typed pages long. Just added, Remind Kelsey that a new dryer is a great idea. Also, Send funk-dispelling messages to sister.

Drinking: coffee after coffee after coffee. Im on my third pot today :o )

Reading: Blogs and the novel Princess Daisy
Wishing: I hadnt done that last half hour on DDR becuase my ankle is killing me and my legs are sore.

Considering: extra big washer/dryer purchase. My dryer takes 3 hours, and my mom says that’s bad. It’s probably only slightly better than taking a hair dryer to a wet load of laundry, now that i think about it. Or exhaling big deep hot breaths.

Listen our dryer did this , longer for jeans towels and blankets, buy the washer/dryer, we did and its so cool when the dryer goes off, with DRY clothes, before the washer!

Reading: Fair is the Rose – Lizz Curtis Higgs

Wishing: Next Friday would hurry up and get here – Kathy Troccoli is coming to my church for a women’s conference and I can’t wait!

Hours in the bathtub: Are you kidding???

On the dryer: I’m with Cheryl. Check the lint. I wanted a new dryer and cleaning out the lint was all it needed. Works great now!

Reading: The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank (just finished tonight); Size 14 Is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabot

Drinking: Iced tea

Wishing: That I could stay up and watch Grey’s Anatomy (on DVR) but am too tired–will wait until tomorrow

Accomplished: Three loads of laundry. One load consisted of 6 (yes, SIX) fleece blankets all at once. Total wash and dry time…90 minutes. Astonishing. Obviously, I’m a huge fan of the extra large, extra awesome washer/dryer.
