prior to that event i had been in a really good mood, but it's hard (for me) to ignore something like that. particularly in light of the messages i seem to be getting about cars lately. i really think i'm being told to stop driving, but i can't stop driving. it's just nigh unto impossible. public transportation doesn't go to the places i need to go.
as i said, prior to and apart from that, i was in a good mood. and that is despite the sad news that we had our lowest book club meeting attendance ever. i mean, normally that would ruin my whole week, but in this case i just understand that everyone has been busy and this month's choice was kind of intimidating or off-putting. i ended up having a good time talking to traceracer and mandy anyways. i feel confident that people will come to the book club holiday shindig, like last year, and that will encourage a renewed enthusiasm.
even before book club, i was feeling good because i made myself dinner. i made myself dinner. i'm amazed. i had scrambled eggs with cheese and an english muffin. not the most healthy dinner, i know, but still. i didn't go to taco bell. heh... instead i had john get me some taco bell once i got to work. lame. i currently have a very long to-do list of which almost nothing is getting done. it goes a little like this:
- make key/mail key copies
- get rid of tv/tv stand
- mail check to mom and dad
- setup online banking
- junk to goodwill
- get car stereo (i bet this will get done friday since it's a "fun" to-do)
- pay parking ticket
- get sewing machine from jody's/get sewing machine fixed/sew curtains
- put together filing cabinet
- get mailing addresses of people
- change addresses with various institutions
- pay bills
