    SD, I agree. However, my work schedule has changed. Now I'm working 9 am to 11 pm on Saturdays (double shift) and 1-11 on Sunday. So my weekends are going to have even thinner lists than before, mostly things I can do during downtime at work.

    I am going to love this schedule, when it works right. I will have grim weekends, then two days off (except this week when I have to fill in Monday night), then a normal day on Wednesday, and Thu - Fri, I only have to work 7-11. It will feel like two extra days off! The illusions of psychological time....

    Saturday:

    1. Charge MP3 player
    2. Finish Last Five Boxes of Wretched Archive files!
    3. Finish two lapghan strips
    4. Catch up hobbies journal - mostly to pass the time

    Sunday:
    1. Get coupons for Hobby Lobby and Michael's
    2. Finish one lapghan strip
    3. Charge Kindle

    Thanks, MM. It's not like I'm laying bricks or anything. It's mostly just sitting around. If I'm exhausted it's only from being bored, so I try to pack plenty of amusements. The hardest thing is getting it together to pack two meals and drinks for such a long day.

    What type of job do you have, Donna? It still sounds like a taxing weekend schedule.

    It's nice to see you back on the challenge.

    2. Put travel books in new stand.
    3. Put TV on new stand.
    4. Sweep bedroom.
    5. Read thirty pages.
    6. Move tomato plant in case of storms.
    7. Medicate dog.
    8. Cook pasta.
    9. Download short story.
    10. Update sig.


    Sunday's list:

    1. Deliver Mom's cat stuff.
    2. Go with Mom to pick up cat.

    I work circulation in the medical medical school library. On my shifts the library is almost empty - or appears that way. Med students come in and disappear into study rooms on the other floors until closing and a few of the residents from the hospital who are on call come by. But we - I supervise college students who are our student workers - usually have maybe an hour or so of real work during the shift, unless there are special projects for us. These are always mindless tasks like scanning stuff or folding and putting address labels on newsletters - that sort of thing. We may have a big scanning project starting soon, but the rule has always been that 30 min each, per shift, is enough on those kinds of things, unless you're so bored even scanning looks better. Most of the time we are just here keeping the doors open for the ones who do come. That's especially true on the weekends when there are even fewer people and few of the usual weekday tasks like interlibrary loan that we help with. For the next month or two it will be a little livelier - just ho-hum instead of Ho-Hum because the new students will arrive and they always need more help finding things and such. However since the usual scheduling is me and two student workers, that still amounts to almost nothing.

    It's a great job for a lazy person! I can surf the internet, read forums, unfortunately shop on Amazon, read, listen to audiobooks, and late in the evening, especially on weekends when there's no one around the circulation area, I'll sometimes crochet. But this isn't "professional" so I wait until the area really is pretty clear. Until someone complains to the director... and that's not too likely.

    I finished one strip, I'm about half through the second - a really fast pattern, only 13 stitches wide. That almost feels like cheating - until I have to put them all together.

    I need to work on some kind of handwork, too, but nothing seems interesting right now.

    SD - this lapghan I've started plugging away on at work is just one to get out of the way. I've taken up knitting again after many, many years, and that's where my heart is. But I'll probably still crochet at work on things done with strips and squares because it's more portable and takes much less attention than knitting cables and such.

    1. Get coupons for Hobby Lobby and Michael's
    2. Finish one lapghan strip
    3. Charge Kindle
    4. Take out kitchen trash - DONE

    Donna, I have beadwork I need to do but can't make myself get started on it. Right now, I'm so ticked off about this state shut-down and not having any income, I'm totally focusing on my writing. My husband is doing his part bringing most of our income when the stupid politicians haven't furloughed everyone, and I need to start practicing the BITCHOK (butt in the chair, hand on keyboard) method of getting my novels published to bring in some money myself. I'm simply not doing my part like I should. So I'm currently going through old stories to see what can be tweaked and sold, old floppies with partial manuscripts, clearing up clutter in my office, and generally clearing the decks mentally and physically to start writing every day like I should have done for the past twenty years. It HAS to become a priority again that comes before everything else except weight loss, or I will never achieve my goals. I want a polished, completed ms. ready for submission by this time next year. There, I've said it publicly, so I'm going to look pretty darn stupid now if I don't follow through.

    Perfect timing. My writing theme song just came on the player: Travis Tritt's Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof. I'm so ready! I think I'll be listening to that a lot.

    So that's the long version about why handwork isn't doing anything for me lately. But I'm liking being back into the pyramid challenge, because there are lots of things I still need to get done around here.

    Sunday's list:

    1. Deliver Mom's cat stuff.
    2. Go with Mom to pick up cat.
    3. Medicate dog.
    4. Read thirty pages.
    5. Find cat crate.
    6. Drill holes in planter.
    7. Review manuscript.

    8. Water garden.

    Monday's list:

    1. Water garden.
    2. Shuffle stuff to make more room in office.
    3. Hang up drape to keep sun off office door.
    4. Close off steps on office deck.
    5. Move writing files from diskettes to flash drives.
    6. Read thirty pages.
