(in order of stores closing)
Advance Auto Parts : pick-up convertible top cleaner because I’ve put off cleaning that thing for way too long!
Bed, Bath & Beyond : find a bathroom organizer for Sara’s hair ties & stuff
mall : buy new shoes because the soles mysteriously tore out of my current ones Thursday night
mall food court : eat mediocre, cheap Chinese food (note: may actually be labeled Japanese or Cajun)
Mr. Tux : finally get fitted for Tim’s wedding two weeks after the deadline he gave me (sorry, buddy…)
Wal-Mart : buy groceries
Kinkos : get DVD case liners re-printed for our wedding DVDs because, well, I don’t want to get into it…
do-it-yourself car wash : attempt to vacuum any remaining water out of my car’s carpet, praying to whoever that the problem is finally fixed!

Jeesh, did I miss anything?! I’d better get going!

Operation: Find AND Clean the Office

The Good News: Home office is now cleaner than it’s been in months and is now ready to host awesome, new computer that is scheduled to arrive in various pieces tomorrow afternoon.

The Not-As-Good News: I literally just finished cleaning now, meaning that 5 minutes really isn’t enough time for me to get to the gym and get a decent workout. I was planning on going tonight because I assumed that I really wouldn’t want to go tomorrow with new toys waiting at home, but oops…

For what it’s worth, though, I do think this place ended up turning out pretty good. I still have a few things that I want to do over time to spruce this place up and make it feel more like a real office, in hopes of boosting my productivity on creative-type stuff here, but in a three and a half hour stretch, I think I managed to sort through the rubble ok. Desk is clean, new monitor is sweet even at the inferior resolution that Sara’s laptop is pushing it at, and I’ve still got an hour to spare before the wife gets home!

Zelda or writing – hmmm, tough choice…

  • got somewhat of a grip on where I stand with the writing
  • played entirely too much Lego Star Wars to prevent any real “progress”from being made on said writing
  • baked gingerbread cookies – swear at self for trying to keep dough in line in the summer heats of Florida
  • watched new episode of Entourage when it first airs instead of relying on HBO on Demand…which has been down consistently when I wanted to watch it for the past three weeks 😛
  • grimaced with frustration as I realized that at the rate I’m going (about three pieces per day), the new photo mosaic puzzle that I bought is going to take roughly 47 weeksto finish…closer to 66 if I take weekends off… 🙁
  • …sighed and was just happy that at least I got some stuff done yesterday…Monday:
    • mail very, very late Christmas package to Uncle Robert
  • exercise as soon as I get home because according to the calendar, I only went oncelast week…oops…
  • spend some quality time cleaning up the atrocity that I left in the kitchen after cooking yesterday…including the stove top and the inside of the microwave, which gets cleaned maybetwice a year…
  • write columns that I’ve made myself a note for and proceed on to next batch to be tackled, striving to complete my backlog and get this website back online before the end of time
  • balance finances if 401k people actually update their website on-time for a change
  • break out some of that chicken for dinner that I bought last week, but somehow slid to the back of the fridge … barbecue, maybe?

so tired…

Tonight I set a new record for myself – 641 calories in 55 minutes on the eliptical … I feel very good, but very tired! 😛

Weekend To-Dos:

  • (money) – balance mid-month budget and pay bills
  • (writing)– get “the backlog” down to 20 columns by Saturday night; start working on upcoming paid articles
  • (exercise)– workout Friday night and Saturday morning … Sunday is optional because I actually kept to schedule this week!
  • (misc) – wash, vacuum, clean-out car because it’s getting to that point again
  • (fun) – not quite sure yet, but I think I need to get out and do something Sunday if I can manage to get everything else done … any suggestions?
