I don’t have an especially exciting week planned, but here are a few things I’ll be doing:
Monday (a/k/a today) – I’m working this Presidents Day holiday, something I haven’t done in many, many years. Because we were closed almost all of last week, my office gave us the option of trading today for a floating holiday. I decided to take them up on it when I realized that all of last week’s meetings had been shifted into this week – where I already had plenty of meetings scheduled. If I didn’t come in today, I would have no concentrated work time at all.
Tuesday – The meeting onslaught begins. I do have lunchtime tickets to go see the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit at National Geographic, which will no doubt be the highlight of the day.
Wednesday/Thursday – Did I mention I have lots of meetings this week? I did, right? Well, now that I am here in the office with the bigger version of my calendar, it’s not looking quite as bad as I thought. Maybe I should have stayed home today after all. Crap.
Friday – I need to figure out how to get out to the suburbs for a Egypt-trip reunion party. I hope I can grab a ride or borrow a car, because it would be great to see everyone.
Saturday/Sunday – I don’t have any plans as of yet. I’m guessing there will be a brunch it or two in there, and some grocery shopping, laundry, and other chores. I’ll probably also make a trip to Eastern Market, since it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been there.
My evenings are likely to be full of Olympics-watching, even though I’m finding NBC’s coverage frustrating. (I don’t really have the energy to rant about it; fortunately, my friend Rudi has done a thorough breakdown of NBC’s flawed presentation over on his blog.)
So, what does your week hold?
