The Sunday Dance

Sundays for me are a balance between getting things done and needing some time to rest and rejuvenate before the work week begins again. This is especially true now that I am working 6 days a week. Yesterday was my first working Saturday with my new schedule. It's only a half day of work, but it alters my usual weekend routine. I used to spend Saturdays doing my thing and saved cleaning, laundry, groceries and other chores for Sunday afternoons. I may have to rethink this plan and do the chores and errands after work on Saturdays and leave Sundays for me.

Yesterday, however, I came home from work exhausted, much like I used to do on Friday nights. I think this was due to a mixture of usual end of the week fatigue, a late Friday night at my parents for Kellie's birthday and a week full of playing vacation catch up. Plus I stayed up even later Friday night to submit my Studio Calico design team application....we'll see if I get lucky with this one. So Saturday afternoon was spent mostly lounging around, trying (unsuccessfully as usual) to nap. I did manage to start some laundry, unload the dishwasher and make stuffed zucchini for dinner before heading to hang out with Stephanie last night.

Which leads me to today's dance between wanting to relax and play a bit and needing to accomplish a few things on my to do list. I have managed to almost finish the laundry, complete a few work related tasks and bake zucchini chocolate chip muffins this morning. This has been mixed with sleeping in, internet surfing, reading some of the newspaper and Sunday ads, and a completed sudoku. Now I'm off to clean bathrooms and mop floors.
