Astoria, Queens, January 2007
I am launching into this weekend with a burden lifted! Every February I have a task to complete at work that I find really tedious. (It involves making a poster recognizing the recipients of editorial awards we've handed out during the past year - trust me, you don't want to know, and it bores me even to write about it.) I've been dreading it for a while, but I couldn't start it until this week, when the last of those contests concluded.
Finally, yesterday I dug right into it and stayed late and got the bulk of it done. Funny how once I decided to do it, it didn't take very long at all. My dread had turned it into more than it really was. What a great feeling, to know there's light at the end of the tunnel, and it's mostly behind me for another year!
The other great thing about this weekend is that I have NOTHING planned. I can't remember the last time that happened. I'm going to stay home and clean my house and pet my nervous, hyperthyroid cat and maybe get out and take some pictures.
