Whaddya Wanna Do (Installment One)

Do. I’ve been thinking about the word do.

Got anything to do?

What do you wanna do?

Well. Honestly I’ve never been any good at knowing what I want to do. I’ve only  been really good at knowing what I don’t want to do.  I’m trying to change.

So, here is a list of things(in no particular order) I would like to do. If you asked
Make a home-made pizza. And then eat all of it.
Grab a sweater and scarf and walk through a sunny, autumn afternoon.
Make a cup a tea, sit on the front porch and share it with a friend.
Watch “P.S. I Love You”. Again.
Read “Pride and Prejudice”. Again. And then watch the movie. Again.
Go to the gym and do a weight lifting workout.
Find some salted, roasted almonds and eat them.
Sit down at the computer and research some new exercises to build strength and increase range of motion.
Put on my IPod and dance around the house. In front of the kids while I watch them grimace and look embarrassed and uncomfortable.
Read a book until I fall asleep.
Take the kids to get frozen yogurt. With toppings. Lots of toppings. Crunchy one and berries.
There is laundry. Why always laundry?
There are two bathrooms that need cleaned. Why do bathrooms always need cleaned?
Become a fabulous writer, sit down at my computer, stay up all night and write a story that is completely life changing. You know, the kind of story that you read over and over. The kind of story that you cling to,  that you hold up to your chest, sigh, and wish you could ingest.
Bake and eat banana bread with chocolate chips in it.

That’s all I’ve got right now. I know there’s got to be more but I’m hungry and can’t think right now.

Let’s call this installment one.

What do you wanna do?
