As predicted
I said:
I'm sure I'll change my mind come the weekend, but maybe by declaring it here it'll actually happen. Because, really, I think I need that kind of a weekend, no matter how much parts of me want other kinds of weekends.

As predicted, I'm starting to wish for not having a whole me weekend. Thinking about making social plans and such. I haven't decided if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I guess I really should give this me weekend thing a chance. I'll see how productive I feel when I next get the urge to make social plans this weekend.

Not very productive so far. I did the hour of work, but then I read the Jonathan Kellerman book, Flesh and Blood. It's up to his usual high standards, but it left me feeling depressed. Besides the usual guilt from spending all day reading, I got down because of the horrible personal situations of the characters. This hasn't affected me before like this. Am I significantly changed? Or is it just a factor of my current modd, what's going on in my life? Either way, I think it will be a while before I read his next book. Not sure what I'll read next. I'll dig through my shelves tonight.

Back to work now. Trying to get another hour of work in today. And then clean the kitchen, so that I can feel okay making dinner. Lots of dishes, but, as has been pointed out to me, it really won't take that much time to get them clean. So, thanks for pointing that out, because, upon reflection, I thin that does make it easier to get myself to do the dishes. That and the productive feeling from getting work done. That should help me feel like being productive in other ways as well.

Lunch with your tax preparer doesn't count as social plans? ;)

Well, yeah. Those are already-made plans, though. And it's to get soemthing productive done: getting the taxes done. So, yeah, I'm having thoughts of other social plans. Anyway, back to work.

About those dishes

(Link)
I have that happen too. Unless I've really been doing a lot of cooking and have a huge pile-up, it rarely takes more than 15 or 20 minutes to do dishes (and many times fewer), but I often feel like "I don't have time to do the dishes."

That excuse actually makes sense though, because although I could have "time to do the dishes" the 15 or 20 minutes spent doing them is 15 or 20 minutes I'm not doing something else, and stopping in the middle of something to do the dishes causes lost momentum, and well, I don't know why I'm running on like this--I gather my typical dirty dishes problem is nothing compared to yours.

If you want help being unproductive on Saturday afternoon, I have been hankering for some Cities & Knights lately. We could try rustling up a game, perhaps?

Thanks for the offer. Saturday afternoon is actually the one time in the weekend that I do have social plans. Blah. Hmm, maybe we can rustle up a game next weekend?
