Top Ten Reasons for Not Writing...

1. Headache
2. Housework
3. Laundry
4. Yardwork
5. Shopping
6. Internet
7. Family
8. Dog
9. Editing, and
10. Making lists

Oh, and 11: Putting the things in the list into the right order. I could start on that now if I hadn't got such a headache. But the laundry basket's overflowing on the floor; we're running out of juice; the grass is too long; it's time to change the sheets but the son's still in bed; and my best friend's dog really is a perfectly wonderful exercise machine.

They tell me walking's good for headaches - good for inspiration too - and it's much more fun than lists. So maybe it's time to phone my friend, or her dog, and enjoy the sunshine before I tell the son to rise'n shine for lunch.

P.S. Reading's my top excuse for delaying all the items on the list.
