Three Day Weekend

I love three day weekends. Even better is the four day week that follows. I really wish I could work four days on and three days off every week.

I was actually quite productive yesterday. I usually spend my days off goofing around on the computer and watching TV.

Instead of doing nothing, I broke the time down into one hour blocks. I spent about an hour eating breakfast and watching TV. Then I spent an hour checking all of my e-mail accounts and RSS feeds. After that, I got to work.

I spent the next hour sketching an entity-relationship diagram for one of the programs I’m working on as well as drawing a few paper prototypes for different parts of the system.

The next hour was spent cleaning up and organizing things in my office and around the house. The office is far from complete, but at least I made some progress.

The next two hours were spent having lunch and then doing a little shopping. I picked up some things at Wal-Mart and Office Max. I also avoided buying any more books at Hastings.

Finally, I spent the rest of the afternoon doing some light house work and helping a friend with computer problems.

Overall, this was much better than my usual schedule – sleeping until Paige comes home for lunch around noon and then watching Star Trek until she comes home from work at 5:00pm.
