I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Give me a hero biscuit, I did housework last night! It's the first time I've given a crap about such things since I got home from Taiwan, sick & exhausted! But, my neatnik sister is coming to visit, so I must try to scrape up some motivation from somewhere.
Tonight I need to:
1. Clean out the fridge
2. Do the organics recycling
3. If I was really good, I'd empty the regular recycling too
4. Empty the dishwasher
5. Wash the stuff that didn't make it in the dishwasher
6. See if I have time to finish the two books above.
That sounds manageable to me right now, but after work all bets are off. (We're training for a new computer system and getting ready to move to a new office miles away from the current one right now).
Books are currently my retreat from real life and boy do I appreciate them.
