weekend balance

July 31, 2010

work AND play?
last weekend was fun (and more-than-a-little-indulgent), but rather unproductive, really. but josh was off and we had a great time together, so it worked! this weekend he is bound to his pager, but rather than pouting about it, i’m actually looking forward to balancing rest/relaxation and my to-do list.

first stop: used bookstore! in the spirit of minimalism (a little apartment therapy?), josh and i have decided to keep our collection of volumes to just essentials/favorites/things we REALLY think we might want to read again. therefore, while i truly enjoyed many of these works, it’s time to let them go.

don’t worry, the murakami collection isn’t going anywhere.

i am posting the picture in part because i am fairly certain that the used book store will not want all of these titles. if you are coveting any of them, let me know — perhaps we can arrange a trade!

next stop: gym for some magazine catch-up time and upper body weights, and then it’s cleaning/study/project tackling time. oh, it’s a glamorous life i’m leading over here! certainly not spectacular blog fodder. but i have to admit that i like it.

i may not be doing anything more exciting, but it will be a new month — which means new goals. i’m going to tear myself away from the ‘work’ theme . . . get ready!



workout: 30 minutes of AM yoga from yogadownload.

sushi!: we enjoyed delicious sushi from just-down-the-street sushi yoshi last night. i forgot my camera, but i’ve captured yoshi’s delicacies before here and here. YUM.

board prep: did not happen. i was supposed to make up for slacking on tuesday but friday is just NOT meant to be a studying night for me! i was also at work until 7:30, so . . . yeah. but josh had this out when i ventured into the kitchen this AM:

hmm . . . isn’t this MY territory? a subtle reminder that i need to start hitting the books unless i want a surgery resident lecturing me about glucose metabolism? thanks for the hint, babe.

    Funny, I&#39ve been reviewing beta oxidation and PDH regulation for my thesis 🙂 Good to see that knowledge may be useful in the future! And if you&#39d like to increase your Dr. Seuss collection, I could help with that, but I don&#39t think I have much to offer in terms of more mature literature. Also, I&#39ve got a free CD coming my way and am looking for something upbeat. If you had to choose between "The Fame" and "The Fame Monster", what would your preference be?

    new month = new goals indeed. can&#39t believe how fast the summer is flying by! i feel like i was just setting july goals and reviewing june!

    and if you have any murder/mystery books that you&#39re getting rid of i&#39d love to do some trading. i have a book called "Trail of crumbs" that i think you&#39d like based on the titles in that picture. but i also have lots of detective novels too 🙂

    Hello Sarah, I&#39m here from Kath eats – where you were so kind to answer to my comment!thank you ! I live in Italy and here there&#39s no way you can rent a house like this one. Or maybe you can if you can afford, let&#39s say, 6.000 euro minimum per month ? I don&#39t know about the US, but that&#39s not the standard budget here 😉
    Actually I am looking for a new house (for rent) and the one I like is about 600 euro/month, and I am talking about 1 bedroom + studio apartment (80 square meters) without garage … So this was the reason for my curiosity 😉

    BTW… Murakami is on of my favorite writes too!(but not his last book on his running "career")

    Sarah – Have you looked into paperbackswap.com? My mom is in love with the site – you can list all your books that you&#39re willing to swap, and for every book you send to someone, you can request a book from someone else. Not a bad idea!
