My Pretend Problems.

I need six hours. In those six hours I would...

Get my brows waxed.
Finishing editing chapters three, four, and five of my friend's dissertation.
Send off Owen's school paperwork.
Make sure that I sent off tuition to Owen's school.
Organize my calendar
Get caught up on blogs.
Write a real blog that is not a list.
Clean out my email.
Clean out my blog email.
Figure out what Twitter is all about.
Write an ad for my business proposal.
Set up a web site for my business proposal.
Figure out a business proposal.
Write and submit articles for publication.
Read the five unread New Yorker magazines by my bed.
Call my brother.
Figure out a "quick and easy homemade Christmas craft" for an activity I am hosting.
Research what do with the remaining cucumbers withering on my counter-top.

What kind of world do I live in that the most relaxing event of my imaginary six hours of free time is...having a stranger rip hair out of my head?


MiMi said...

Dang, you'd get a lot done in 6 hours!!! LOL

Nancy C said...

All I would probably do is read an Us Magazine. Hence the list.

shortmama said...

Man if only 6 hours were possible!

SamiJoe said...

I entirely agree on the hair ripping. It does sound like torture, but it just feels so good to have those brows waxed! Ah, i get mine done this weekend-so excited! LOL

Remaining cukes- can you pickle them? Relish?

And, Twitter what? Ugh. I keep looking at it and i'm still not sure what it is?

Happy FREE time! (when you do have a minute!)

Ms. Moon said...

You live in a world we have created which is INSANE!

LB said...

Who are you??? The Bionic Woman?? I couldn't do a third of that in 6 hours. Of course, my six hours would include lots of short naps.

adrienzgirl said...

I'm pretty sure I would spend most of my time sleeping. Right after a quiet uninterrupted bath with bubbles and a glass of wine.

Yes...that's definitely how I'd spend my imaginary 6 hours.

Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) said...

I think you're overestimating how much you can get done in 6 hours! I wish I could work that fast. :D

blueviolet said...

You could do all that in six hours? Shoot, it would take me a week!

Jenny said...

How much caffeine would it take to get that all done in six hours - ha!

Grimmgirl said...

Who ever has 6 free hours! Start with one free hour and take it one at a time. Skip the eyebrows.

The Ninja said...

You forgot the wine...wouldn't be able to do any of those things without some really good wine.

michelle said...

I'd probably sit in front of the computer for most of the time, then bake a pie for dinner.

I'm lazy and completely lacking ambition

Alex said...

I would jump on the treadmill while watching the Kardashians, reading a book. Then organize all the crapola in the house, get a tan, do the laundry...

The list never ends does it?

clearness said...

You're so much better than I am because if I had six extra hours in the day, I would totally sleep them away.

From Tracie said...

6 extra hours?

I would probably try to sleep...and then the insomnia would hit.

Followed by reading and way too much twittering.

At the end of the six hours I would think of all the things I could have done....and then sleep through something important.

Salt said...

I just want a nap. Like right now. Reading the list made me feel tired.

If you could get all of those things done in 6 hours, I would crown you Most Efficient Woman. Ever.

Bekah said...

Very productive pretend day. I am with you on the Twitter thing.

An Imperfect Momma said...

Haha. Six hours. What a dream of mine. And you know what? It would include getting my eyebrows done too ;o)

Erin said...

this list is all too familiar.

I have 6 hours today. girls are going to school. However, I venture to say I will not accomplish much on this list.

I've kind of hit a funk w/ the blog stuff. Maybe partly b/c I feel dried up. And stopped up. The words won't come. And I don't have the energy anymore to vist 867 blogs and leave worthwhile comments beyond, "Nice post." I also often hope and feel that my closest bloggy friends (one of which would be you) understand if I'm late to come over or I sometimes don't make it at all, etc.

p.p.s. what are your Twitter problems? it took me a while to catch on, but I'm happy to help? I emailed Empress (do you follow her? Good Day Regular People?) a short list of tips/hints/explanatory babble the other can I help?
