Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.
Welcome to another week, another Thursday, another edition of DO 1 THING. This week I retrieved my day planner that I forgot I had from its spot in the bottom of a totebag that I found during last week’s DEEP CLEAN, and for the first time in a few months am working off of a to-do list again. LISTS! Calendars with little notes written on them! How did we survive before.
At the bottom, as ever, an afterthought but also a plea to whatever bit of responsibility hides inside me, yearning to be free: “TAXES.” This will slowly move to the top of the list until October 15th when I am forced to do something about it because that is the day when people who filed for extensions in April (HI!) must submit OR ELSE. Did you file an extension for your taxes? No? Because you’re not an idiot who prolongs pain? Good. So: I made a list this week. What are you up to, what do you got?
