Unproductive Moments
Wednesday, Jul. 30, 2003, 9:35 p.m.

QUESTION: What's wrong with a little down time?

WHAT I LEARNED: Some days might be better spend in your PJs.

Ever have a day when you sit down at the end of it and think - what did I do today? And you really can't remember - at least anything really bigger than taking out the trash or checking your email.

Today was that kind of day.

All I can really remember is -

  • Dropping off a kid for class,
  • Getting coffee,
  • Checking email,
  • Picking up the same kid from class,
  • Checking diary for notes from Diaryland friends,
  • Watching Haiku Tunnel - one of my favorite movies - and maybe the perfect expression of my I-don't-seem-to-be-doing-anything angst,

  • Paying bills and trying to figure out (and stick to) any sort of reasonable budget,
  • Banging out a puny 15 minutes of practice on the piano for a 1/2 hour lesson - at least now I know what pieces I am supposed to be working on,
  • Answering the phone and answering the phone and answering the phone,
  • Wondering where all the towels went and why no one ever replaces the toilet tissue roll in the hall bathroom when it's empty - an inconvenient thought to occur to one while occupying said bathroom,
  • Eating a microwave meal for lunch and another for dinner,
  • Reading the first 3 pages of Chapter 8 in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - when everyone else is all the way through book 5 in the series,
  • Making hot tea and drinking diet sodas,
  • Listening to my dad criticize a purchasing decision I had already made - where's the off button on that speech?
  • Wondering if I could buy a soundtrack of the background music on the SIMS game,
  • Realizing that I am not really getting anything done,
  • Giving up and getting into my jammies.

I know I did a few more things but I think I will just stop here, make a nice cup of hot tea, and get back to reading Harry Potter.
