It is spring break.
To celebrate this fact, I allowed myself to do nothing this weekend. NOTHING. The result? I was really, really efficient. Although Apparent Dip and I slept in really, really late on Saturday (gearing up for the worst day of the year: spring’s daylight savings day), we nevertheless accomplished a boatload of errands before 1 p.m. It was rather frightening actually. I’m not sure what to do with myself when I get things done like this. We even cleaned (and not “cleaning” as in: “hey, let’s move that pile over here, and that pile over there.” No, this was real, honest cleaning!).
We went to a yarn store, where I subjected AD to the horrors of helping me choose a yarn for my newest project. Luckily, the store had a pet bulldog who could distract him at crucial moments (i.e. when I paid for said yarn). I’ll post pics soon…I promise.
And then I spent the rest of the weekend knitting. No reading. At all. We even weathered the time change yesterday, although it was rough–in a household managed by three cats and a rabbit, losing an hour for no good reason ranks right up there with the apocalypse. We tried to soften the blow with catnip and toys, but I don’t think it helped much. The bunny, as always, has no clue as to what’s going on.
And now, I’m actually looking forward to get back to work on my research projects, which are threatening to get out of control if I don’t put a lid on them soon. Hooray for spring break!
