well, the start of the week sure did get away from me. i guess i was in denial about those two glorious days ending already. how does it never fail that weekends are short and weeks are impossibly long? one of the great mysteries of life, i suppose.

so how was your weekend?

mine was full of long walks traversing all corners of downtown austin. in an effort to give my poorly equipped lower body joints a break – yes, i hear it. i sound like i’m 70. but if you came from bad knees on both sides of your family and had crazy flat feet, you’d get it – i’ve been drawing out my daily strolls to make up for forgone running time.

there’s something awesome about walking. walking through neighborhoods and across town. sites that whiz by every day from the car window somehow look new and fresh. you gain a greater appreciation of your normal surroundings. you discover things you never knew existed before.

you should give it a try. ok, i’m off my soap box now.

anywho, after my leisurely weekend, i’m ready for the filled-to-the-brim week in front of me. on the top of my list is prepping for my so-close-i-can-taste-it trip to nyc (yay!). here’s what else is on the docket:

– major cleaning of the ol’ apartment (it’s way past time)

– organizing my finances and taking a peek into the future with some planning

– laundry and packing

– and other necessities to wrap up before heading out of town

what’s on your list this week? hope it’s a good one.
