Shoulds

I should get up from this chair.

I should take a shower and get dressed.

I should go see my husband in the hospital.

I should clean the house before the house cleaners come, so the house is ready when he comes home.

I should start the painting that’s driving me crazy, begging to be put on canvas.

I should put all the scraps of information I’ve been gathering into the notebook I bought.

I should pack and mail out all the varnished paintings sitting in my living room.

I should wash the dishes and clean the sink. And the counters. And the floors.

I should break up all the boxes Amazon has been raining upon me, and take them to the dumpster.

I should bag up all the garbage in the house and take it to the dumpster.

I should bandage my bad knee before going to the dumpster.

I should buy new bandages for my bad knee.

I should make an appointment with a doctor about my bad knee.

I should make a dentist’s appointment.

I should have lunch with friends before my schedule tightens up.

I should have lunch.

I should get up from this chair and make something.

I should get up from this chair.
