I took my mom out to lunch the other day. Over her salad, she said the following to me:
"You need a project."
And she was right. I do need a project. Which is weird if you know my personality, because I am kind of a couch potato. But after awhile, if I don't have a project, I start to feel like a blob. A boring blobby blob.
So. I need a project. An interesting project. And by interesting, I mean BIG.
At first, I thought I would write a novel. Isn't it NNWM or some such acronym for writing a novel in a month? But then I spaced, and now it is November 7th, so whoops, not much time left for that. Also, I don't have any ideas for a topic or a plot or a character, which seems kind of important.
Then I thought, maybe I will start a photography business. I've taken fall pictures for three friends for fun this year, and I thought well, heck, maybe I should do this for some strangers and charge something for it. Still mulling this one over.
I also want to redecorate my living room. Unfortunately, this one is not very feasible since Scott put me on a Target moratorium the other day when I went to buy laundry soap and came home with two shirts, tights and card stock (and I even put the third shirt BACK, harumph).
I HAVE decided that I am going to cook the Thanksgiving turkey for the first time this year. Usually my mom handles it since my family members are all turkey fanatics and you do not want to be the person who screwed up the turkey on Thanksgiving. But I'm gonna do it this year. I'm a 35 year old woman with three kids for God's sake, it's time I learned how to cook a turkey.
So I guess the turkey could be my project. But how lame is that. I'm one step away from wearing holiday sweaters with that plan.
So what projects are you all working on? Got any interesting ideas for me? Or a book topic? I'll take those too. No pressure on what you come up with, it just needs to be perfect is all. No biggie.
