I had to go to the office today.  I know, I know, I'm on vacation.  But yesterday I went for a walk at lunch so I'd changed into my tennis shoes and left my work shoes next to my backpack.  When I was getting ready to leave around 3:00 I was still in my tennis shoes and was getting all my shit together as well as answering last minute questions when I remembered I had a check to deposit at the bank on the way home.  So I got out the check and a deposit slip, filled everything out and put them in my purse so I could go through the drive-thru at the bank.  Then I left.  Leaving my dress shoes on the floor in my cubicle. 

Of course I didn't realize I'd forgotten my shoes until I got home and was pulling stuff out of my backpack.  I tried to let it go, telling myself that the shoes would be fine (who would take them?) and they could wait until I came back to work on the 10th.  No good - I was mildly OCD all evening and had weird-ass dreams all night.  So today after I got ready I headed back downtown to the office and got my damn shoes.  Time in the building?  Four. Freaking. Minutes. 

But I'm much more relaxed now so it was worth it.  Had I not gone to get them I'd probably be weirded out all week.

Today included a few errands, some shopping (books and comics) and now laundry.  At some point I need to go to the grocery store, WalMart, and Lowes.  On the agenda this week is mowing the grass, staining the deck, getting my new garage door Wednesday afternoon, and getting the A/C serviced Thursday morning.  And only the garage door and A/C are absolutely required (although if I don't cut the grass its going to take over).  Everything else depends on if I'm feeling it, not to mention the weather.  I intend to leave the grocery/WalMart run until a weekday too. 

As for now, that's pretty much it.  Now if you'll excuse me, there's a book to finish and some more episodes of Babylon 5: Season 1 to watch.

Yesterday saw a burst of productivity that included laundry, grocery store, WalMart (ugh!), dropping off the recycling, and getting two of three pieces of code done.  I also went for a walk, watched RENT: Filmed Live On Broadway and read another 150 pages of The Age Of Ra.  Yes, I very productive day.

I woke up this morning (late) thinking I really needed to go to Lowe's to get mulch, potting soil, and seeds/seedlings for the container garden.  But I'm really not in the mood to leave the house today.  People were driving like drunken monkeys yesterday and I'll admit I'm just not up to dealing with that again today.  So I'm stying in and cooking instead.

The windows are open despite the slight chill in the air.  More laundry is in both the washer and the dryer.  A zucchini lasagna is cooling on the kitchen table and I'm about to make baked corn tortilla chips.  After that is some vegetarian sloppy joes for dinner, another movie (Blindness this time) and finishing my book.  

I think that makes for a productive weekend, don't you?
