(very) late start

April 20, 2009

good . . . afternoon? i’m not sure what i did all morning, but since it’s 2:00, i think it’s safe to say that i must have filled that time with something. yes, it’s true: i’m off yet again today. my month of semi-vacation continues! it’s all about to come to an end (in 1 week), so i suppose i had better enjoy it while it lasts.

actually, while it still seems bizarre that it is so late, i did get a bunch of little things done today. i’m currently plowing down a to-do list of weekend minutia, from bill-paying to meal-planning to bathroom cleaning (haven’t gotten to that one yet, sadly). still left on the list:

in order from least to most pleasant . . .

☑ clean out old stuff in fridge
☑ clean bathroom
☑ call bike trip company to confirm sonoma excursion
☑ choose morning report case for next week
☑ errands: grocery store(s), post office
☑ read about chosen topic
☑ yoga (probably ‘yoga for runners’ today)
☑ elliptical while reading trashy mags
☑ think about a 5K to train for this summer + training plan
☑ pick out new book to read

as you can see, this list spans the entire spectrum from ‘oh barf’ to ‘huzzah!’. if i can get it all done, i plan to reward myself with leftover king family merlot while making a spring-tastic lamb dinner. here goes!

on a related note, i am in love with a new pen. vickie shares my unwavering devotion to fabulous stationery products, and she gave me one of her muji gel ink ball points. these things are just 0.38 mm, write like a dream, and are only $1.25 each! yes, that’s this week’s shopping list

my sugoi stamina running skirt came! it fits and i think it’s cute, but i have yet to determine how functional it actually is. pictures/review to come!



workout: rest day post half-marathon!

reading: none. it was a non-academic weekend.

doin’ time: nah, i mooched off of my sister’s cooking instead. excellent.

flossing: still going!

    You have the neatest physicians writing ever! Mine is so messy- maybe gel points will help me!

    I hate cleaning the bathroom! Especially the toilet.

    This post reminded me of one on the underwear drawer, when she talks about doctors and their pens. Check it out! http://theunderweardrawer.blogspot.com/2009/04/one-true-pen-someone-recently-asked-me.html

    You’re still going to do the half marathon in May, right?

    Have you thought about what your goal for the 5k is? 22:59, perhaps?

    One good thing about your two least favorite tasks–you can listen to music (or talk radio) while you do them! I know that helps me get through bathroom cleaning.

    One piece of advice – be careful biking in sonoma after wine tasting! Whatever you do, don’t try to take a picture of your spouse while on the bike going down a hill after visiting 5 wineries. A serious case of road rash could ensue!
