Complaint by Numbers

Weekend Project | June 12, 2008

Since my weekend technically starts late Thursday afternoon and I generally don’t have enough work to fill the whole 3.5 days. As soon as I’m done with this degree, though, it’s back to working full time or getting myself knocked up and on maternity leave. Not surprisingly, the hubby is leaning towards the former. And now I’ve become sidetracked, one sentence in to the post.

Granted, I could delete that and start again, but that would make this too polished, and I’m looking for a more organic feel (read: I don’t want to bother), so I’ll continue on down here, with the hope of somehow re-railing this train o’ thoughts. So we covered Thursday weekends, university, my inability to stay on track and now we’re here, or rather, we’re back at weekends. 

My weekends usually start with the thought, “Wow, I’ve got days to do this work,” and end with me frantically writing a composition in somewhat broken German while reading the last 3/4 of a 20th century British novel. In between, I stress about the work I haven’t done, and consume a bottle of wine. This weekend, things will be different. Instead of thinking about the work I’ll inevitably put off until Sunday night until I actually get to Sunday night, I will occupy myself with a project (or two!). This weekend, despite the heat, I’m thinking cooking.

More to the point, I’m going to attempt to recreate the Polish recipes I enjoyed as a kid, so this weekend will be filled with cabbage, onions and breads (and probably pierogi). I’ll keep everyone updated with recipes, frustration and the like!
