In my life's patterns of overwork/underwork, I've gone into a small underwork period. My project oral exam is done (if you'd like to know how it went, the code is 11, and your magic decoder ring is here), and I have a total of one more day of work, and that only in the morning, before I start my summer travels next Friday. So I have basically a week to do what I'd like, and to get things done.
So what have I done? Not nearly as much as I could. I've watched a lot of football. I've done some cross-stitching. I've made a commitment I will most likely not keep, to clean and cook a bit more...I'm terribly undomesticated, which isn't really fair on Thor when he's working and I'm not. I've tried to read a whole book, but I seem to have forgotten how. I've met people for coffee.
So what am I missing? What would you do if you had a week to hang around at home? And is there a secret to being extra domesticated, some little trick I could apply to the apartment which might help my hopelessly tarnished reputation as a housekeeper? Anything which could give me domestic street cred, and/or would make the apartment look that much nicer, would be greatly appreciated.
