What If Wednesday: What if I could do whatever I want today?

Today's Topic: What If...I could do whatever I want today?

Only 5-10 minutes of writing....GO!

This morning I slept in late and was 15 minutes late for work.  On my way out the door, I noticed the cat had left me a super fun, obviously projectile, little present on the back of the couch.  A little present I had to pretend I didn't see because I'm already late for work.  

That's so gross.  I know.  But I had no option.  It will be waiting for me when I get home. 

It's a beautiful day in Wisconsin today.  The sun is shining, and it is a touch warm but the wind is blowing in that perfect way to keep things just cool enough. 

If I could do whatever I wanted today, I would have dealt with the gross mess right away and then jumped in the shower.  Then gotten dressed, and driven to the post office to see if any mail has come my way.  I might stop somewhere for breakfast and coffee

Maybe I would renew my fishing license and spent a quiet day next to the river fishing or writing a letter next to the water.  Or just go to the beach.  It's been a long time since I went to the beach.

Maybe I would grill dinner.  Maybe I would go out to eat at some place with a patio... maybe a Mexican Restaurant because I love fajitas that come to the table still sizzling on a cast iron pan. 

Sometimes this whole employment thing is overrated.

  1. What if... If I could do anything today I'd not be home with my almost 3 year old who is potty training (or rather learning to pee all over the house wherever she's standing at the time). If I could do anything today I'd have a babysitter for her and I'd have money and I'd go shopping. I hate shopping but it's not too terrible if I don't have to drag a toddler who thinks she's god. Also, I'd have someone else make me coffee. Instead I'm home. Toddler has peed half in the living room half in the kitchen all over the gate so now I have to take it down to clean under it. She then went and finished peeing on the bathroom floor cuz I yelled "stop peeing go to the bathroom!" Well she did go to the bathroom. But the floor was her target. Oh how I dream of going on vacation. Something I haven't done in exactly 15 years this very month. I was 16, just a month shy of 17. *sigh* I could ramble more but I'll stop now. :D
