The Plates Are Falling

I've previously blogged about all of my spinning plates.
It's gotten worse.
I need to write down all of the things I have to do this week. This is as good of a place as any to start. Maybe I'll even get a little traffic out of it...

  1. Plan for garage sale this Saturday
  2. Go through things to sell. Cry over sentimental value of the first CD Dr. T. bought me. Throw it in "for sale" box
  3. Dig through "for sale" box for missing half-eaten string cheese for screaming L.E. and drooling dog
  4. Distract L.E. while putting toys she's never played with in garage
  5. Prepare house to go on market
  6. Clean off bookshelves, dining room table, bar, kitchen counter, bathroom counter, dressers, end tables, TV stands
  7. Find lost ring. Hurrah!
  8. Hire cleaning people
  9. Look for house in new city, preferably one in a great location with good schools that has a remodeled kitchen and is close to a park, a restaurant and shops
  10. Mind-wandering: "Is a good school really that important if the house we like is close to a bar?"
  11. Look for job in new city, preferably one in a great location that's part-time with summers off doing something I absolutely love like blogging or reading people's Facebook updates and/or Twitter feeds, while getting paid handsomely
  12. Plan all of the things we want to do before we leave this area
  13. Look at real estate in San Francisco even though that's not where we're moving
  14. Look at upcoming live shows in new city
  15. Move "finding a babysitter in new city" to the top of the list
  16. Figure out whose birthday party invitation it was that got thrown out with yesterday's mail
  17. Mind-wandering: "I forgot to set the DVR to record the new 'Dallas'!"
  18. Do some work, short-timer.
  19. Blow off people I haven't seen in months who are just now realizing we're leaving in a few weeks
  20. Cry when realizing I'm fully incapable of blowing people off
  21. Buy a Father's Day gift
  22. Blog on my current company's website
  23. Try not to lose it over this morning's weigh-in where I gained 1/2 a lb this week
  24. Convince myself a cheeseburger and fries is not the answer
  25. Beg my readers to tell their friends about me so I can get a book deal
  26. Get mad at Dr. T for not responding to my last email. Oopsies, I didn't push "send."
  27. Mind-wandering: "Since this is a permanent move, should I get a new cell-phone number?"
  28. Suggest a divorce to Dr. T. so I can go back to college as a single-mom and get more financial aid to put towards a teaching degree (He said no because wanting summers off is not a good enough reason to become a teacher. "You hate teaching!" "So?")
  29. Wonder how many Weight Watchers Points are in a cheeseburger and fries
  30. Stop writing things and start doing them. Jeez!
