What To Do? What To Do?

I have so much to do, I do not know where to begin. So, using what little wisdom I've managed to acquire over the years, I am going to avoid a confrontation with the disorder in my life. At least for now. I know I am supposed to prioritize, to do the most important things first, and to expect and to accept less than perfection. But, I am overwhelmed and find myself wishing that someone else would take over being me just for a little while.

Maybe you would like to trade places and live in my skin for awhile. It's not hard to be me, but it isn't exactly easy either. This is all you would have to do:

1. wake up at 7:00 a.m., 2. drink 3 cups of coffee with cream, 3.complain about how beastly hot it is, 4. go outside and admire my garden, 5. pet my dog and scratch the top of her head, 6. cuddle my cat, 7. make and drink a yogurt smoothie, 8. throw a load of laundry into the washing machine, 9.check Etsy listings and prepare outbound orders, 10. chain self to computer and edit existing Etsy listings or scan pictures and create new ones, 11. get ready for work (involves facing reality of reflection in mirror--never a surprise, always a disappointment) 12. go to work at a retail establishment, 13. lament to yourself how woefully underemployed you are, 14. deal with the public and all its types of people, and 15. do your best job without making your fellow employees look bad.

What do you think? Are you up for it? I am.
