it feels like summer, but it still looks like winter

March 20, 2010 |  Category:   life



The weather’s been in the 70s most of the week. Didn’t we have that snow storm just 2 weeks ago? It’s weird to wear short sleeves and sandals when the trees still look like winter.

Weekends usually mean very little at our house since work flows from 1 day to the next regardless of what day it is, but with this particular freelance gig, I’ve been looking forward to Friday nights (and feeling the Sunday night blues) like most of the traditional working world. I’m finally coming up for air. I haven’t had a week like this in a while, but in the end, everything got done and everyone is happy. I’m feeling the need to process the last 5 days and then file it away and move on.

Number of hours worked: 62
Number of hours slept: 23
Number of hours spent outside: 5
Cups of coffee consumed: 12
Number of meals eaten a day: 1.75
Number of emails received: 352
Number of emails written: 122
Number of hours spent with the kids: way too little

Number of hours I will work today: ZERO

I’m hoping for a better balanced week next week. The universe has saved me one more gorgeous 74 degree day. I will enjoy it with the family, finally. Hope you are having a great Saturday too, wherever you are.

    I love that you thought to keep track of these stats and hate imagining 352 emails and less than 5 hours of sleep a night.

    it’s strange to think that it’s becoming warm in NY while in our part of the world – i live in south africa – i can feel, see, smell autumn approaching.
