“I’ve still got stuff to do.” These are the words I heard on the radio the other day. Bob Weir, co-founder of the Grateful Dead band, was being interviewed. He was asked about his plans for the future, to which he responded, “I’ve still got stuff to do.”
Me, too. My short-term stuff? Go to my 35th high school reunion next Saturday. Take my best friend on that girls-only shopping trip I promised her. Spend a week in September soaking up the South Carolina sun.. Find time to work on my autobiography.
My long-term stuff? Bake at least forty more birthday cakes for Steve. Go shopping with my future grandchildren. Spend whole winters soaking up the South Carolina sun. Publish my autobiography. What stuff do you still have to do?
