Weekend Wanderings: Work

If you know me in real life, or you know me on twitter, you know that I've been exhausted and sick and overworked recently.  In trying to remedy that, I refused all invitations for this weekend (including: 3 readings, 2 brunches, 1 dance performance, 1 race, and 1 concert - am I always this popular? I really don't think so), and stayed in to get some work done.

The miraculous thing?  It seems to have worked.  I didn't finish everything on my to-do list, but I finished a lot of it, and I feel so much better about the state of my life.  It was also really nice to be able to focus on the one "outing" we had, which was having a delicious brunch at Kitchenette with our friend Rachel (of Vermont fame).  I tend to pack weekends so full that I hardly remember what I did or who I saw, and so it was nice to really slow the pace down.  Even though I still have a cough, and even though some things still need to get done (don't some things always still need to get done?), I'm feeling more relaxed and prepared than I have in a long time.  Thank goodness.

Yep. The kitty is beginning to sneak inside.
