My work weeks are usually completely different from my weekends, especially where food is concerned, so I might try to get into the habit of reviewing each separately - the work week on Fridays and the weekend, or week as a whole, on Sunday or Monday. It could be a good way to take stock of what worked and what didn't.
At first I thought this work week was pretty routine, because it seemed like all i did was go to work, come home, cut grass, and then knit and watch baseball on the telly. But actually, I went out with friends on Monday night, and went to a funeral on Wednesday. So two very different social situations.
I am not a very sociable person. I don't go to many parties. Our dinner group on Monday numbered 4, and that's about all I can handle at one crack. Of course the funeral group on Wednesday was much larger, so I felt a little withdrawn. Even though I visited with people, I keep wondering if I missed someone (probably), and I left without really saying goodbye (did I need to? I sat at the same table as the widow, and when I had to leave, she was occupied by other people).
But except for those events, I stuck close to home. No shopping trips, no appointments. I found myself a little at a loss in the evenings, because I am working on a very non-challenging knitting project, with a deadline, and it just seems like that's all I'm doing. I should have scheduled some time, even 30 minutes a night, to do some cleaning, or sorting and organizing. Then I might have felt more productive. I also realize that those empty minutes would have been occupied with snacking had I not been focusing on Spark again.
So maybe if next week follows the same routine, I will try to fill some of the time a little more productively. Maybe I will get off my butt and get started on my painting project. That would be a very good plan. It's in writing now, so that makes it real, right?
