A Good Weekend

Saturday was spent doing errands, placing orders, and getting things checked off my list.  When I went to bed on Saturday night I felt like I’d accomplished a number of good things. 
Sunday I was slow to get out of bed.  I just wanted to laze in bed.  When I did finally drag my sorry bum out of bed, I showered and sat at my computer doing non-thinking things like playing on Facebook.
After a while, I went to the kitchen and cut up melons and prepped things for lunch (hadn’t had breakfast but hey it was Sunday).  The rest of the day I spent watching DVDs or DVR programs.  I crocheted a bit – the afghan is coming along nicely.  It’s about half done I think.  I spent time with Ken and Vicki.  At some point I felt a bit slug like but decided that was what Sundays are for. 
The only thing I didn’t really get to this weekend is writing.  I’m hoping that with six days off this next weekend I’ll be able to get a good bit of writing done. 
Somehow I managed to get a lot of stuff done this weekend and still feel like I got a weekend.  This is a good thing because it allows me to go back to work rejuvenated and refreshed – at least till I get to work and realize all the stuff on my desk…

Weekend Work

We work all week to get to the weekend.  You’d think that we’d spend our time relaxing, kicking back and enjoying ourselves.  Nope.  I spent my weekend cleaning closets, going through boxes, writing and editing (okay that is fun), and organizing things.  Ken cleaned the garage and took a truck full of stuff to Goodwill.  He also moved things around for me that I couldn’t lift myself and rearranged furniture as I asked him to. 

Now I have more desk space that is better organized.  I have to go through my pile of writing stuff though and figure out a system for that.  My writing is a constant question of what is the best way to organize it.  At some point I’ll figure out a good system. 

After all the work this weekend, I still don’t have my closets cleaned.  I still have work to do in my office to get it organized.  My brain is still churning on how to best utilize my space and organize my stuff.  It’s just that I need to mull it over for a while before I come up with an idea. 

I need a week of doing nothing more than genealogy to go through the boxes of stuff in my closet.  That doesn’t include my mother’s genealogy stuff that we need to get organized. 

I’ve got five chapters left to get on the computer for edits for my manuscript.  That will be my next task.  I’m hoping to finish that process off so I can have someone else read it and tell me what they think (thanks Vicki).  I’d like to get back to writing but probably by the time I’m done with the edits I’ll move on to something else.

This weekend has been a case of so much to do.  Fortunately we got a lot of it done.  There will be more to do.  There always is.
