new! plans for my future

I just got here about an hour ago. I spent the morning at Nora's school, working at the book sale.
Maybe I should do that -- work at a book sale.
You know, I've been thinking about what I want to do. (I'm sure you know this.) But it strikes me that what I want to do is nothing! I'd like to have time to hang around the house, read, go for walks, maybe take a few classes. Maybe write a mystery novel. Volunteer at the kids' schools. Maybe work a few days at something interesting. This is what I would like to do.
Is that so wrong?
Well, the wrong part would be that we can't afford it.
But anyway -- it seems crazy to be worrying about what kind of new career I want, when what I really want is to be retired.
I cooked dinner last night!
I picked Maddy up at 2:30, then we went to the grocery store, and got a copy of Lord of the Rings so we can figure out what her elf costume should look like. We got home about 4:30. She did her homework while I made chicken tettrazini -- from the two day old chicken hanging around in the refrigerator --
That's what I'd like to do.
I really would like to write a mystery novel, too. I think I could do it. My main character would be a mom --
I'm going to look into this a little further --
design by simplify.
