Free Time? uh....what?

I'm a great go-with-the-flow-er and let-things-happen-as-they-will-er, but surprise changing of plans and unexpected free time messes me up.  I don't switch gears that easily.  I mean, if our plan is to just see what happens?  great.  yes.  fine.  But if our plan is an actual solid plan that I've geared up for in my head and shit changes all of a sudden?  notsomuch with that.  I feel off balance and disorganized.  I'm not a fan.

I was supposed to be at a meeting tonight.  A PTA thing.  I had it in my head what I was going to wear, what questions I was going to ask, how funny I would allow myself to be.  For days.  I made plans for the kids and everything.  And then two hours before?  cancelled.  CRASH.  wtf do I DO now?

I could go shopping!  I could go see a movie!  I could cut the grass!  Or other things I need to do but am not in the mood for at the moment!

But what did I do instead?

Nothing.  Fuck around on the computer for a while.  Watch TV.  Email.  bleh.  Write.  Which is maybe not so bleh, but still.  I meant to be doing something else right now.  And I'm not doing that thing.

Sometimes I'm great at free time.  I'll all of a sudden get inspired and saw 8 feet of benches off my deck or plant eleven lilac bushes I got on sale at Walmart in less than two hours because HEYWHYNOTNOW?!  So I'm trying to forgive myself for being a complete schlub and not doing anything productive this evening.  Except for wash all the bath mats and shower curtains and bleach the cutting board and stuff.  Which doesn't really count because there's no heavily lifting or tools involved.  And I could be doing something more fun probably like going to see my friends perform at the comedy club in town.  or anything else.

But maybe this is where I'm supposed to be tonight.  Home.  Quiet.  Laughing to myself like an idiot at this:

And that's okay too.

Man, that chick is funny.  Cry-laffing indeed.
