4-day weekends

It’s what everybody wants, right?

Well guess what! I have a 4-day weekend! WOO HOO!

However, practically speaking, I am finding that there’s not much to differentiate one day’s schedule to the next. Therefore, sometimes I forget what day it is.

Let’s do a quick run-down of an ordinary week:

Monday (or, days with no class):

6 am- alarm goes off for the first time.

6:30 am- alarm goes off for the third time.

7 am- roll out of bed. make coffee. drink coffee. thoughtfully consume breakfast (fruit). read e-newspapers.

8 am- bike ride.

10 am- home, shower, thoughtfully consume second breakfast (eggs… with vegetables, chicken sausage, and cheese, usually).

11 am- 7 pm- reading, interspersed with procrastination along the lines of: making tea, eating lunch, playing with the cats, checking email, reading more news.

5 pm- begin thinking about dinner, while continuing to read.

7 pm- begin making dinner. glass of wine at hand.

8- 9pm- thoughtfully consume dinner.

9 pm- attempt to read some more.

10:30 pm- go to sleep.

Tuesday (or, days with class):

6 am- alarm goes off for the first time.

6:30 am- alarm goes off for the third time.

7 am- roll out of bed. make coffee. drink coffee. thoughtfully consume breakfast (fruit). read e-newspapers.

8 am- bike ride.

10 am- home, shower, thoughtfully prepare and consume second breakfast (eggs… with vegetables, chicken sausage, and cheese, usually).

~11 am- ~5 (7) pm- class. with short breaks here and there that are used for a) printing reading material, b) socializing, or c) eating.

5 pm- begin thinking about dinner, while still in class or on my way home.

7 pm- begin making dinner. glass of wine at hand.

8- 9pm- thoughtfully consume dinner.

9 pm- attempt to read.

10:30 pm- go to sleep.

The only things that differentiate the *real* weekends are that 1) sometimes I don’t shower, and 2) I go to the farmer’s market on Saturday.

I have to say, it’s a pretty darn good deal 🙂
