1. Get PBQ over to write a list for me
2. Have an attack of the vapours over how much has to be done
3. Decide it's all too much and go back to bed to finish my book

In real life:
Try to wash and dry spare bed doona because the ##^%$& dog weed on it and it's raining and my parents are coming today for a week and will need the doona.

Set up iTunes on new laptop and transfer all of my music.

This has been on my to do list for weeks and I keep procrastinating. Today I've baked, swept, tidied toys and wiped down kitchen cupboards in an attempt to avoid doing it. Damn you iTunes, you always cause problems!
