PROMPTuesday #172: Laundry List

November 15th, 2011

You know how such complicated things are really quite simple? Like, you want to work out? WORK OUT (San Diego Momma). Or, you want to write a book? WRITE A BOOK (San Diego Momma). Or maybe you’ve been meaning to reclaim your soul from social media saturation. STOP TWEETING SO MUCH AND WRITE YOUR BOOK (San Diego Momma). So for today’s writing prompt, I’d love you to laundry list something that sounds complicated, such as:

 

How to avoid that overwhelmed feeling:

1. Set boundaries.

2. Tell people no.

3. Tell other people yes.

4. Sleep more.

5. Wake up earlier.

 

See? Done! Tra la la la la! A feeling of calm probably just came over you, am I right?

 

As for YOU, laundry list something. And…Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.

Okay, let’s see… oh yeah, I do have a couple of laundry list things.

1. See daughter #3 get married in March.
2. See daughter #1’s baby (my first grandchild) in May.

There! That’s pretty simple! :D

Okay, this is mine:

How to shake up my brain
1) Take a painting class
2) Go see Pacific Standard Time exhibits at museums
3) Keep writing Deb’s PROMPTuesdays!

Okay, don’t faint, but I did this prompt. I also might have rambled on a bit (or a lot) and I’ve forgotten how to make a link work in these comments.

Here’s mine.

Make Time
1. Get up 30 minutes earlier and do yoga – good for brain and spine.
2. After dinner, after the dishes, after putting the kids to bed, cook something else, either dinner, lunch or breakfast for another day, or else a chocolatey treat.
3. After dinner, after the dishes, after putting the kids to bed, after cooking and more dishes, call someone, a friend or family member and catch up. It’s been too long!
4. Go to bed early.
5. Knit on the train to and from work – 4 new babies arriving to 3 friends in the next 3 months need booties and hats.

I suspect I’ll only be able to do one of these about every other day. But at least I made the list!

How to survive in Las Vegas:

1) Find a sugardaddy.
1a) Be under 25
1b) Be HOT
2) Work at any of the big casinos as a service “model”
2a) Again, be under 25
2b) And, naturally, be hot
3) Failing the first two suggestions, try gambling. Because there’s no RISK OF LOSING EVERYTHING. Ever. Not at all.
4) Take a job in an industry that’s oversaturated by people who don’t know what they’re doing and charge too little, thus fucking it up for those of us who are good and charge for being educated and competent.
5) Hope you have enough friends with empty sofas so you can couch surf your way through life as you wait for meaningful work.
6) Be prepared to piss off at least two of those friends (over something small, but still piss-off-able).
7) Be prepared to beg and plead for forgiveness endlessly if they are the kind of friends you like having in your life.
8) When all else fails, become a live-in nanny for first time parents who are sweet as can be and make you life as comfortable and happy as possible. No lie. They’re that good.
