I am writing these things down. Supposedly, writing things down helps you hold yourself accountable.
I am determined to do these things this summer:
Visit the Tiger Sanctuary.
Watch a movie of the stage production of Kinky Boots (already have the tickets). By a coincidence, I'll be watching the filmed version of the London Adelphi performance while the same thing is showing at the municipal opera. This might end up being a good way to see shows that are at the Muny theater, but avoid the heat and the DAMN GNATS.
Visit the new Arch museum. This has been on the list for a year. I was very concerned that the crowd under the arch for the Stanley Cup rally might have tried to stand on the grass-covered roof of the museum and collapse it.
Leave the house on the weekends if it is under 83 degrees.
Garden in the evenings after the DAMN GNATS all die later this month.
See Samantha Fish at the Atomic Cowboy with Friend 2. I need another concert for the list. The Kathleen Madigan concert isn't until November. And, I know, Barenaked Ladies are in town, but they're only opening for Hootie and the Blowfish, and decent seats cost over a hundred dollars, and can I justify $200 to watch my band play for an hour?
Encourage Gary to get the toilet and the driveway installed and the new basement crack fixed. This is out of my control, of course, and I know any amount of encouragement will backfire on me. Yeah, strike that off the list.
Participate in life in general instead of just waiting it out.
