this week's been a bit rough. 2 reasons:
1. i'm not used to josh being gone on call
2. i'm SO IN NEED OF A WEEKEND, A REAL ACTUAL WEEKEND, where no one comes to visit me, and where i don't go to visit anyone else (or attend some annoying ethics retreat). fortunately, there is one lurking only 2 days away! it's even theoretically a 3-dayer, but i don't really plan on observing 'labor day' or whatever.
weekends. they're the best! i'm not saying that i need to sit around and do nothing. in fact, i have an 18-mile run planned for saturday (if i survive it) and i need to go to lab to finish some things up that day, too. but just having the OPTION of slacking -- it's very necessary. being able to do life-maintenance sorts of things, like laundry and grocery shopping -- necessary as well.
in other news, can i just say that $40 for filling up the tank in my VW golf -- somewhat ridiculous? i can't complain though -- there are so many that are much, much worse off.
