Some 'firsts' in this new-normal world | Weekly Snapshot

I almost didn't make it here today! It's been an insanely busy week that's going to continue into today. Life This week has been a combination of busy at work and busy at home. The kids did not have school on Monday, which is also typically my busiest day at work. So when Monday ended, I felt as if I sucked at both life and work. The rest of the week was better - at least I was able to keep work and life separate.  This weekend just happens to be one of those when I have so much to do - thanks to the many tasks and chores deferred from previous days/weekends. We were getting quotes for some home improvement projects, had to start prepping rooms for my parents' arrival next month (mainly because I still haven't moved my daughter's online school materials out of the room from the Fall school year), and do lots of seasonal shopping. If it weren't going to be constantly raining this entire weekend, I would be prepping my garden beds as well, but now that needs t

Uh-oh, where did this week go?

For the first time this semester, I worked on a Saturday. I never do usually. I've made sure my work week was busy enough with that. But yesterday, I trudged to my lab with two of my colleagues to write a paper for a conference. When the paper was done by 8 pm, I headed straight home and to my bed.

Today, I have a long list of chores to do. My Sundays always bear the brunt of an overloaded week, because of which I get highly lazy. I am already beginning to make my excuses today - for all I know, I may just go and curl up in my bed again. Some of the perks that come with student-ship. :D

Something I missed mentioning last week - I got a job 2 weeks back. :) I can say what a big relief that has been. Going from uncertainty to some solid plan for the next few years is a great feeling.

I had a good reading week, in spite of the busy work. Audio books are a real help during weeks like these. At least, my workouts didn't get a hit. Plus, I took small books to my lab with me, to read in between break. That helped too. I did manage to get my reviews up as well. I guess, in hindsight, I did have a good week, but I'm too blinded by work to see.

Let me get started on chore #1. It's nearly noon already!

Have a good Sunday, blogging and non-blogging folks! Hope you have a good week ahead!

I felt like I had a pretty crappy week too but in hindsight not so bad. Congrats on your job-I can definitely relate to that right now since I'm trying to get a new job for the next couple years of college (I've got a pretty good lead right now though, keeping my fingers crossed!). I think I might have to start getting into audio books for my work-outs too, especially for weeks like this last week was.

Congrats on the job -- I hope you tell us more about it sometime! I know how it is with busy weeks, I have a couple of busy ones coming up... audio books would be such a good idea for me, but I just have this inertia against trying them out, haha.
Congratulations on the job!

Sundays are just made to be lazy days. But I hope you accomplished the tasks that *had* to be done.

Thanks everyone! :)

Ash, audio books are truly a great motivator!! I guess I work out longer thanks to them!

Kathy, I'll be working as a software engineer in Lynchburg, VA. That's just 2 hours away, so I'm glad! :)

Dana, I don't like audio books much, but they are great during workouts. :)

Kristen, hear hear, sista!
