It’s nearing ten p.m. on a Friday night. After putting my daughter to bed, I’ve washed the dishes, done the laundry, and boxed up some outgrown toys. Next I’m going to start writing up work plans for two independent studies I’m supervising this semester. Then I’m going to bed.
Tomorrow, I’ve got to take Minnow to the store and buy some diapers, wipes, milk, and chocolate. I’ll take the dog for the first decent walk she’s had all week. I’ll supervise toddler playtime, mealtime, and bathtime. Hopefully during naptime, I’ll get a chance to do battle with the invasive plant that’s taking over our backyard. In the evening, it’ll be time for more dishes, laundry, and a chance to scrub the toilets.
Sunday, I’d like to go check out a potential field site about 2.5 hours away, but the prospects of driving five hours with a toddler and coaxing her to stay in a backpack in between pretty much preclude that possibility. Instead, I’ll end up supervising more playtime, mealtime, and bathtime. During naptime, I’ll pay bills and try to do some yard work. After bedtime, I’ll start working on Tuesday’s lecture.
Damn, my life is glamourous. What are you up to this weekend?
