A baker's dozen I'm avoiding - 3.6 #sol16 Story Challenge

Making an orthopedic appointment to learn the truth about my sore knee. Crunching the numbers on last year's taxes. Folding my laundry. Using up those two shriveled zucchinis in the fridge. Grading the last eight pieces of student writing in my virtual stack. Watching televised political debates. Making the bed. Holding up my end of family phone tag. Emptying both the trash and my inbox. Moving the new grill from the guest bedroom to the patio. Shaving. Getting a car wash.

  1. This is great! Love your description of the zucchini. :) I should make a similar list - mine might be much longer!

  2. Always so much to do, it makes one tired to think about it. And we get up the next day to do it all over again.

  3. The list never really does end. Like the idea for your post! Maybe I should add a car wash to my list?

  4. Isn't so much more enjoyable to make the list than make the list disappear?

    A story for another day is why the grill is in the guest bedroom. Inquiring minds want to know.

  5. As procrastinator in chief, I can relate. My to-do list is long. As w/ Dana, I'll need to write a much longer list. Good job. Great tone!

  6. I can see why you would be avoiding these things! None sound too fun! Good luck getting to them this week.

  7. A great slice! I feel my list might be endless if I started! This month of writing means a few other things are being neglected. Laundry, did you say laundry? Off to start mine!

  8. This is excellent! How many times have I found myself doing this but never written about it? Thanks for a great idea...I'm sure I will steal it at some point. :)

  9. Yes! Fantastic slice. I am with you on the inbox... I've currently got over 5,000 but I've been way worse than that. Sigh.

  10. Speaking of taxes, that reminds me, I have to photocopy mine and get those off to my accountant. (I already did the tedious deed of crunching the numbers.)
    Good luck to you on your baker's dozen list.

  13. I am so borrowing this idea for later in the month when I need one of those "tiny writing" days. Very clever.
