‘Cause I wanna…

There are things I should do today, but not things I have to do. Do you know the difference? The have to and the should dos? I tend to make them all have tos.

Not today.

I should do laundry.
I should do a bit more work.
I should write.
I should vacuum.

Well, I did a laundry marathon last Thursday. For once I’m not behind. I’ve worked non-stop since I got back from RT. This is why there hasn’t been much in the way of blog. I’ve been working since 7:30 AM until I fall into bed between 1 and 2 (sometimes 3) AM. I do consider my writing work too. And over the course of this past Friday to Tuesday, I wrote 14,000 words while still doing my regular work a minimum of eight hours a day.

So today came the want tos.

I wanted to watch Battlestar Galactica. The original not either of the remakes.
I wanted to peruse eBay.
I wanted to read a vampire book.
I wanted to chat with friends.
I wanted to not knock off the people in front of me at the checkout lane and the people behind me who were having a huge fight. This almost became a had to…as in had to knock off.
I wanted to have lunch with my best friend.
I wanted to play an online video game.

See? Nothing overly productive. I claimed today as my day free from should and have to. When was the last time you did that? For me, it’s been awhile.
Tomorrow, I’ll write.
