I think I should start running. I take medication for blood pressure. My cholesterol isn’t what you would call a healthy range. I definitely need to lose a few (quite a few) pounds. So, running. It’s all the rage. But I don’t know where to start. Do people just get up after not doing much more than a stroll around Target and start running? Sounds like a great way to injure myself. And I definitely need new shoes for this. And when would I do this running exactly? I’m already so busy. This running business would involve a great deal of planning on my part. But I really should do it. Soon.
I think I should take up knitting again. I started a scarf about 8 years ago. Do I still remember how it’s done? I think I do. A soft rose colored scarf would be perfect for winter. And knitting reduces stress, right? I’m often so stressed out I give myself panic attacks. Knitting would be great for that. I know that half knitted scarf and soft yarn is in a box in the garage right now. I think I’ll dig it out. Soon.
Speaking of the garage, there’s some great stuff that I should go through. Boxes of books I still want to read. Or read again. Nowadays, I read everything on my tablet. I know the girls have toys and stuff in there that they want, before they are too grown up to have any use for toys. I know there are used baby toys that the twins would benefit from. We just moved in July. Of course, I still have a box or two in the house that I need to unpack too. I know there’s a box of clothes in there that is too small. If I wait long enough, and do that running thing, will I fit in them again? Still so much stuff to purge. We could definitely have another yard sale with some of this stuff. And donate to charity too. So, I will definitely go through all those boxes. Soon.
When I was in elementary school, I used to write stories all the time. I would make up characters and while I walked home from school, I would think of all kinds of different scenarios they would encounter. I’d get home and write some of it down. I have no idea what happened to any of the notebooks I used to record my stories. Long gone, I’m sure. I would love to take the time and flex my creative writing muscles again. I need to try, if only to prove to myself that I still can. Soon.
I could go on and on. I can’t be the only person who does this. You do it to, right? Have a list of things floating around that you plan to do? Soon?
