  1. Susan

    Ugh. Same day here. Plus sunburn! Minus walk.

    Still nibbling. And drinking! Whoo hoo!

  2. Cele

    I swear Mir, reading your day just wears me out. Happy Fourth.

    clean. drive. meet internet friend. drive. cook. eat. drop friend at train station. cost co. knit. listen to blues fest being broadcast from the waterfront here in portland. sit. knit. curse the fireworks. praise the dog. threaten mother nature. praise the dog.

  4. Izzy

    I was thinking the same thing as Cele….that list wore me out by merely reading it. But really, it sounds like fun. Mine will be more along the lines of holding a bucking one year old all day so he can’t get down and trash my friend’s house.

  5. Erin (erin-erin-bo-berin)

    My family might suspect that I’ve hired you to chronicle my daily life at home with my three daughters! Except that where you have typed ‘walk’, my story would say ‘run’ or ‘dash’.

    Next week, however, there will be lots more ‘walk’ and ‘drink’ to my story, thanks to a visit with my hubs to Las Vegas.

  6. David

    That was kinda cool. Can I try it? Let’s see now.
    Wake. Dress. Drive. Work, work, work. Bank. Mail. Haircut. Dine Chinese. Grocery shop. Home. Shower. Read. Pass out.
    Hmm. Offhand, I’d say my day was shorter than yours. Are the days 24 hrs. long where you live? Do you use regulation-size minutes and seconds?

  7. David

    Yesterday. That was yesterday. Today? Lounge.

  8. Amy-Go

    Oh, I am on day 12 of what you call holiday! And I am tired! But I am in Atlanta so life is good at least for 12 more hours. Then I will go home to Kansas and have lots of time to catch up on what you have been doing for the last 2 weeks.

    And p.s.? I’m so GLAD Jos won the bet! ;)

    I am wishing you a slow, laid back day today.

  10. Kailani

    Very original and to the point. Love it! Happy 4th of July!
