25. October, 2004 - Lazy American! Back to Work!

The weekend turned out to be a pretty good one. I was basically a complete slug on Friday, sleeping a ton in order to kick the cold I’d developed, and getting the bare minimum done for work. Saturday, I went to mom’s, and then out to dinner at Manning’s with Mark, Jim, and the Mutz. Didn’t join the gang in going out for Karaoke, since I’d been awake since 3am and when they all moved out at 10, I was ready to sleep. I slept from about 11 until 4:30, then from 6:30 to 9:30 and again from 12:30 to 2:30, with some writing in between. Then it was time to watch the race and the ballgame. Then to bed. Ahh. Relaxing.

By the way, the title for today is a quote from Gung Ho. After a lazy weekend, it’s the kind of thing I need to get moving again. There’s plenty that wants doing around here: Life Balance has a long enough to-do list for me that it’s got a scroll bar this morning, which is never a good sign. Then again, there are a few things on the list that will be a snap to knock off, which will help me feel as though I’m accomplishing things. And there are no real crises on the horizon, just a bunch of things I need to complete to keep life running smoothly. That’s a pretty good feeling.

Even though yesterday was a beautiful day and I didn’t get outside once, the weather for this week promises to be at least half-decent, and I’ll probably find an excuse to get outside and enjoy the weather at least once more before the snow flies. I’m feeling pretty good, and that’s a nice way to start the week. I’m tempted to take the phone off the hook so nobody can call me and wreck it.
