What I have is a "To Do List" with nothing crossed off

There are so many things I should be doing right now.

Things like clean off my breakfast bar, throw away the old newspapers, fold my towels that are piled up on the couch, clean up the kitchen, finish cleaning my bathroom. In general, get rid of the clutter that I live with.

In other words, I need to tidy up. Normally I do it on the weekends. But it's going to be a bit different this weekend. See Mom is coming. And under normal circumstances, I wouldn't mind if there's a bit of a mess, she's cool and understands. But this won't be normal circumstances. See, Mom is coming to take care of me, after they slice open my neck.

Yes, you read that right. My neck is being sliced open.

They doctors are removing something that decided to grow on my thyroid. And to be honest, I'm freaking out a tiny bit. I mean, they're slicing my neck open! One little slip and BAM! I could be friends with Nearly Headless Nick at Hogwarts.

So Mom is coming to take care of me. Actually, I'm staying with my parents, but when it comes to sleep, we're coming back to The City on the Water, because my bed is just so much more comfortable than the one at my parents' house. Thankfully, it's only a 30 minute drive.

But since she's coming and sleeping here, that means my apartment has to be at least in somewhat decent shape. I'm not a messy person, it's just the mail from the week has been piling up on the breakfast bar and some stuff needs to be put away.

By no means would it take long if I just quit blogging and did it. Or just did it when I got home from work instead of deciding to go for a 4.4 mile run.

Maybe I'll suck it up and spend the next 15 minutes or so straightening up. The sooner I do it, the sooner it will be done.
