I should be outside with the family. Weeding or chatting, while the kids play.
I should be planning dinner, so it's not a rush when I come home late this afternoon. Marinate some meat or something.
I should turn the music down a little.
I should've watched the movie with J. last night. But I needed time.
I should put the iron away. We won't need it again for months.
I should Stop.
I should not buy more M&Ms.
I should gather paperwork for taxes.
I should send the package and mop the floors.
I should finish all the projects I've left unfinished.
I should do more manuscript submissions so I don't dwell on what's out there now.
I should read that book that's been sitting on my shelf for years, mocking with its complex themes and thick prose and heaps of praise.
