Normally, I've posted by now - usually at 2 or 3 am, when the day is done and I'm about ready for bed. Last night I was cold (see yesterday's post), so I thought I'd just curl up under the covers for a minute … a minute! -- and that was all she wrote. Awoke this morning on the couch, bundled in a comforter, with the computer open to where I left it.
Yesterday, we also had another plan. The plan was to leave work early and get up to the movie theater for a 9:20PM showing of "Hail, Ceasar!" the new Coen brothers film (his choice and mine a little bit), or Zoolander 2 (my choice, and his a little bit). We did leave work early - by pretty much a full 45 minutes, (which is a feat in itself) - which meant we should have had time to get to the movie with plenty of time to spare. But as fate would have it, 3 accident delays on I-95 later, it took us almost an hour and a half longer than usual to get where we were going. By that point, we had missed the last showing of "Hail, Ceasar!" and just went straight home.
Do you plan ? Do you believe "Fail to plan, plan to fail" ?
These days, I'm not that big on having my day all planned out - oh yeah, I do have a "to do" list, but it's not a hard and fast list I must follow - no ABC or 123 prioritization, but more of an outline of what's coming up that needs to be done. I'm not a last minute person, so I can just go with the flow- which works well since hard as you might try, obstacles will get in the way. You've got to be able to just roll with it.
I've always used a planner, and have one now, but my planner is mostly birthdays and when the next scrapbooking retreat is - rather than a hour by hour, minute by minute planner. This year, since it's become popular in the scrapbooking world, I've ditched my regular one for a creative one that I can embellish and doodle to my hearts content.
Today, the only thing I HAVE to do is get to the post office and buy Powerball tickets. I think I can get that accomplished.
As far as the movies go … the new plan is to see Zoolander 2 on Sunday - it may or may not happen since it's Valentines day, and I don't particularly like crowds, so if it's crazy, we may postpone again, but I'm hoping we end up going.
