I ended up taking the entire day off yesterday, partially because the electrician was around longer than I thought* and partially because it was a really nice day outside so I took advantage of it to walk around the neighborhood, get some air, and unwind. It was really nice to just take a day to do nothing. Plus I had to do some rearrangement of “what is plugged in where” in the bedrooms, since I think at least part of the problem was that I had two power strips plugged into one outlet.
The worst thing about taking a day off in the middle of the week is having to get up the next morning and go back into work. It’s particularly bad for me because I inevitably stay up way later than usual on days I take vacation, in a desperate attempt to maximize my vacation time. So I end up doing all sorts of stuff that I’d been putting off for weeks – case in point last night I:
- washed some dishes
- folded laundry
- made myself some tea
- decided that two pairs of pants were too old to wear in public anymore**
- read some of the latest issue of Businessweek
- tried to find the new Pink music video***
- put away guest linens from J.Po and Spice visit
- updated my iPod software
All told by the time I got to that last one it was after midnight and I was kicking myself. At least I got to sleep in yesterday morning. In general nothing exciting enough happened to warrant blogging about - other than the fact that it wasn't interesting. Don't fret though, tomorrow I'll be back with my usual witty repartee.
* But he wasn’t nearly as expensive as I thought. Plus, now I know how to swap out breakers when they burn out.
** Quick, listen carefully – you might hear cheers coming from South Florida if the GF reads this from the hotel lobby ‘net access terminal.
*** I can’t help it, I like Pink. And that video is pretty funny.
