plannerfest 2010: an update
i was all excited about my 2010 system in this post, so i thought that in the spirit of monday (new week!), i’d provide a little update on how it was all working out. here’s last week’s 2-page spread:

close-up of the all-important blank side. essential for lists!

looks pretty comprehensive, right? let’s zoom in on friday:

note: 10 am: reserve wilco tix. oh, it was in there. too bad i never bothered to open this pimped out stack of paper on friday morning to notice it! the tickets went to scalpers within minutes, and i missed the boat. i felt horrible, because i told a friend that i would get tickets for 3 of us!

note to self: the best system will not work if you don’t look at it! i have found it useful to transfer the day’s tasks onto the mini moleskine booklets. checking things off a list makes anything seem 1,000 times more doable (and more fun).

if only i had taken the time to do that on friday am!

big spender
so i went ahead and charged $2030 to our credit card yesterday. that’s:

✔ 22.5 kai coats (at sale price)

✔ 4.5 linea pelle dylan bags

✔ 2.8 canon rebels

or, on a practical note,

✔ 2+ months rent

✔ ~4 months of groceries

but all i got for $2030 was this:

yay. now i just have to pass the test.

off to XT! it’s a balmy 20 outside. a slight improvement . . .



workout: 10 mile run!
first 6.5 miles @ 8:43/mi pace
last 3.5 miles @ 9:25/mi pace (chatting all the while with cara)

culinary corner: i think i’m going to be rather lazy and eat a lot of leftovers this week! in fact, other than a big pot of soup, i don’t have any major cooking plans on the horizon. i kicked off the week in the same vein by using up some leftovers from saturday night’s dinner at milltown.

milltown salad: spinach with dried cranberries, almonds, artichokes, grilled chicken, and lambic dressing. accompanied by some ubercrunchy seedlander dr krackers

reading: some cases in peds in review. fun fact: strongyloides, a roundworm parasite, is endemic in the southeastern US! it can cause peripheral eosinophilia and GI symptoms. it can also be asymptomatic for years. YUM.

    You have such nice handwriting! Good luck on the exam. I think you should reward yourself with something nice for all the studying.

    I miss you already! We definitely can&#39t wait eight more years before our next get-together 🙂

    $2030 is a rip…they could administer the test on line for almost nothing. The price structure was designed by people who forgot how much it cost to get where you are
