2 weeks before event: put potluck in calendar
1 week before event: see potluck in calendar, see many other things in calendar, wonder if I’ll make it
Sunday: thinking potluck is a good idea
Monday: figure out what to cook for potluck
Tuesday: feeling optimistic; buy ingredients for dish for potluck
Wednesday morning: stay in all day to rest up for tonight’s potluck – yay!
Wednesday afternoon: figure out timing for cooking and travel
Wednesday evening: cook dish for potluck, look up directions to place of potluck, start getting dressed for potluck
Wednesday evening, later: realize I don’t really want to go to the potluck; ok, I want to go, but not as much as I want to stay in my pajamas and watch tv all evening; yup, that’s what I want
Wednesday night: watch tv, eat the dish I made for the potluck, remember that I’ll go out another time, hope that some day nights aren’t so tiring for me, feel glad that I’m just feeling a bit tired and not feeling completely horrible like some other nights
Thursday will be another day with new opportunities.
