Things I am looking forward to doing when I get some downtime. (Only two weeks away.)
I have had about enough of these damn convenience foods and frozen pizza dinners and frozen nuke-a-whatever for chow. My gourmet home cooked dinner will involve some time consuming marinade action, chopping and stirring, fresh veggies, a salad (can you believe it, I am actually craving a freakin' salad), and probably a bottle of wine. Still undecided on the baked goods for dessert. Recipe suggestions welcome.
Watching a movie.
I don't know which movie. I don't even know if I want to go out or stay in and rent. All I know is that three uninterrupted hours dedicated solely to veggin' out sounds like grand luxury.
Shopping for a new vehicle.
Yep, the Jones-mobile is on the way out. The only real question is how much new car can I actually afford?
Clean the house.
Alert my mother, I actually WANT to do some cleaning. This place is a sty and I can't stand it anymore.
Go on a date.
I somehow found time for a date this summer. A second date with the same girl is very likely. If she has been patient with all my work that is. There is also another lady I have been swapping Emails with. The ex also hinted at getting together. Perhaps it is time to put some distance to the ex though. Meeting someone new sounds more fun.
A burger and a beer.
Not that I haven't had any burgers or beer this summer, but going out because I feel like it instead of because I need to eat before I fall over will be a nice change. Plus the luxury of having all evening to relax and enjoy dinner without any pressure to be somewhere else or get up early. Maybe I will have two or three beers with that burger.
This one is strange to me. I have been spending all summer hiking and lifting heavy objects and yet my body is craving exercise. Whatever; I can roll with it.
I know myself well enough by now that sleeping late will probably consist of waking up at the usual time and lounging in bed for an hour until I get bored. All good though, it's living without the pressure of being somewhere that I am really looking forward to.
Play some video games.
After an intense summer of real life problem solving, I could use some virtual reality where the stakes for screwing up are not quite so high.
