Decisions, decisions

I met a friend for drinks last night so that I didn’t even head home until 8 PM and didn’t get home until 9 PM. That’s okay though, because I still managed to get into bed by 9:30 so I got a decent night’s sleep.

I talked to jen_ashlock yesterday and almost decided to go up to New York City this weekend. It was a last-minute thing. Mom is going to be in New York and I thought I might head up there too. Cooler (or, more tired) heads prevailed, however. After getting back to my office last night, I was tired. Train tickets are not cheap and I need to cut back on some of the spending I’ve been doing (after all, I’ve got a substantial tax bill coming). Plus, I’ve been going, going, going and if I went up to New York this weekend, I’d just keep going. I need a break. So I decided, reluctantly, not to go this weekend. I felt it was the right decision as soon as I had made it.

When I got home last night, I found that I received my order of the Rocky Balboa DVD in the mail. I was eager to watch it, but it was too late, and I was too tired to watch it last night so I’m saving it for the weekend. I did a little bit of reading so that I’m nearly 200 pages through I. Asimov but then lights out shortly after 9:30 PM.

We’re doing a happy hour after work this evening, which will be fun. I plan to take it easy this weekend, for the most part, reading, relaxing, and cleaning up the house.
