Musings 1317.279 Balancing the days

What happened to my weekend?

With 4 days off I'm going to get so much done. Right.
I always try to work my PTO days around a holiday when the offices are closed. If the observance day falls on Monday I tend to take the Friday off. This way I get two short work weeks split up by a long weekend. I had good intentions of getting some long overdue projects completed. I was going to clear out my closet, do some much needed mending to my clothes, get rid of things that don't fit or I don't wear anymore and work on my CAD techniques. A little more than a week ago I had a
late night incident which resulted in a hairline fracture of my 4th toe on my right foot. Within the last week I've figured out how to drive with my big toe, use my left foot to brake and gotten my limp down to barley noticeable when I walk. I still can't wear a closed toe shoe (trust me, I've tried) but I've come a long way. The first day was nothing but naps broken up by a lot of cheat eating. Because of my foot which is now doing that tingling itchy healing thing, there has been no clearing out of the closet or anything else that requires too much activity. I got some mending done and tweaked my blog for next week (the formatting is still all over the place) and suddenly it's Sunday.
I've still got chores that I'd like to get done so me and the Hubz could have a quiet, cuddly Monday together but I just found out he has to work Monday which on one hand buys me an additional chore day but on the other we don't get that lazy day together. A real bummer. Well, at least I have a short week coming up.
