My Must-Get-Around-to-Doing-That-Soon List

Posted: December 27, 2015 by Rachel

I’m that person that turns to my husband over dinner and says “next date night lets try that new Thai place around the corner.”

And then we don’t.

I’m that person who always picks up the black or grey sweater. Do any other options exist?

I’m that person who says, “yeah I want to go back there someday with someone I actually like” (New York) and “I really want to see [that show] again” (Mystère).

And then I don’t.

It gets tiring after a while, you know? And maybe it’s the new year fast approaching (it’s definitely the new year fast approaching) but I’ve been thinking about all those things I say I’ll do, but don’t. And, well, these are some of those things that I’m going to try my hardest to do soon.

    HA! I totally have a list like that, in my head. I need to write it down and put on the refridge so I can see it, and he can see it, when we asked 'what do you want to do for dinner or this weekend?'.
