Since lists help my brain function:

Things I did today that indicate I may not be lifting on full thrusters:
  • Sis told me Clover's husband was on his way over, but I didn't change out of my nightgown
  • Put my skirt on inside-out before going out to the Willow House
  • Forgot to give Sis her mail (none that looks time-sensitive, thankfully)
  • Didn't check in with the office to see what's up on the studio apartment front
  • Didn't check in with work to make sure I wasn't in today
  • Didn't check in with work to try and make an actual permanent schedule for the time being
  • Called easalle from the phone that I know is flaky
  • Didn't try and catch the cat before taking the bed apart


Things I need to do:
  • Laundry
  • Put away dishes
  • Clean fridge
  • Sort through pantry, set aside items that Sis & the LF should take
  • See about schedule with work
  • See about apartment moving with office
  • Maybe some overtime
  • Organize stuff, put in boxes
  • Throw out crap
  • Test re-assembled sewing machine
  • Get measurements to easalle
  • Get/find container for pre-brewed espresso
  • Call Darkside (when he gets back)
  • Clean the other bedroom (vacuum, get my stuff out, throw away trash)
  • Move Sis and the LF's stuff into the other bedroom from the living room, for sorting purposes
  • Clear up that blasted library book issue
  • Fill tank of car; it's on half now
  • File random papers
  • Shred outdated personal papers that no longer need to be kept on file
  • Type up all the changes to ectogenesis from the paper version I have lying around in my papers
  • Polish up cuttingrmfloor, finish the story.
  • Make random freezable things that will work for work lunches, like the rice/mushroom soup/meat thing
  • CALL DARKSIDE, DAMMIT!
  • Write to relatives
  • Attempt to make my own skirts
  • Set up the damn Default View filter so I can avoid things as what annoy me
  • clean out bag, find best combination of bag/purse for everyday use
  • get some sleep
  • vacuum
  • take cans for recycling
  • Hug the LF
  • Check and see if some other phone/net arrangement would be better/cheaper
  • Mend broken clothes
  • Dry-clean pretty holiday skirt
  • check bills, make sure everything's current
  • find my lactose pills, keep them more handily


Things I need to do that depend on doing other things first
  • See about scheduling possible time off for moving
  • Organize friends to help with move
  • Return other sewing machine
  • Pick up futon frame when it comes in
  • Spend some quality time with Darkside (we're due some)
  • Plan on getting phone/net, electric transferred
  • Make new frog skirt


Things I need to get:
  • New watch band that isn't broken, or new dress watch that doesn't make my wrist break out in allergy-sores that resemble mosquito bites only more raw
  • new set of plastic containers
  • cleaning supplies according to my own cleaning preferences, vs. Sis's
  • a few new bras
  • more cable ties


Things that actually did get done today:
  • bunkbed dis-assembled, moved into other bedroom
  • cat picked up, moved to Clover's
  • hot_chocolate moved to Clover's, the buffet too
  • Saw the LF
  • politely declined Brilliant Idea that I get/be gotten a new kitten, because a) I am so not ready for anyone to take Eris Raven's place, b) I'm Really Bad at being responsible for animals, especially right now, (and please no one else tell me that Cats Will Let Me Know When They're Not Being Taken Care Of; I know my limits; and also don't go off on the A Pet To Take Care Of Will Make You Feel Better About This, because the thing that's making me feel best about the whole roommates-leaving-at-all thing, and even more so the doing-it-ahead-of-schedule-on-zero-notice thing is item c, and if that were negated, I'd be in some serious bad place) and c) I'm relishing the thought that if I wanted to, I could put in for some time off work, let the apartment managers know I'd be on vacation and not abandoning the apartment, and just go somewhere without having to arrange for pet-watching, because I haven't had the freedom to do that in TOO FUCKING LONG.
  • socializing with the local nanowrimo crowd, happily without any jackasses
  • dishes in dishwasher put through wash cycle
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
