Slept really late today (I'm definitely catching up from last week), which was enjoyable and necessary, but also makes me feel limited in what I can accomplish.
things I've done already:
fun reading & breakfast while lounging in bed clip dogs' nails help gf express the dogs' anal glands(truly disgusting, but it costs $15 each dog each time at the vet or groomer, so we learned to take care of it ourselves)
start laundry answer student emails
The big question is whether I work at home this afternoon, or go into the office. I have a bunch of overdue administrative stuff that can only be done at the office, and it would be satisfying to go in and get it taken care of. Yet, although it's urgent, it's not necessarily the highest priority task. I've got other priority and urgent things I could easily do from home. A few years ago, when I was unpartnered, I'd go into the office on the weekends both to get stuff done and for the socializing (several of my colleagues were frequently there too). Now that I have a settled down life, it's harder to leave the house. Yet also harder to get stuff done when I'm at home.
Trimmed down priority short list:
purchase & finish setting up new software --I've been using the trial version and am loving it research for conference paper work on ongoing writing project
- go to the gym
(long walk instead) it's my turn to take the dogs to the park
And then, at the end of the day: dinner with gf and our Sunday night indulgence, Desperate Housewives -- anybody else gotten hooked into this? It's wonderfully campy, sort of Stepford feminist, very different from what I usually expect from TV.
