Routines: How Much Is Too Much?

This weekend was too short. Or passed to quickly. Not sure how to describe it, but I kind of wish I had tomorrow off too. Or I am a little ambivalent, since I have some interesting work to look forward to tomorrow, and then a ballet class in the evening. But I also have more things that I would like to fix with at home, and there is never any time in the week. Anyway, it was fun to meet up with my friend from Moldova and we had a nice lunch at Cafe Leopold in Georgetown. Since his girlfriend is Moldovan, he promised to invite me to some Moldovan events, which I look forward too. I then ended up spending the rest of the day, strolling around in Georgetown before going over to Chinatown for the Swedish cupcake and wine gathering that I was invited too in the evening. It is always interesting to meet other Swedes and to hear why they decided to move to Washington.

Today was a typical Sunday in DC with brunch at Trio, grocery shopping at Whole Foods (missed the farmers’ market today), skyping with friends, a few hours of reading for work, some writing, and a bit of ballet. I realized that I have become a person of routines, and I can’t decide if it is a good thing since I kind of like the things I do, or if it is just dull and a little pathetic? Fortunately, there is a bit of traveling scheduled for me this spring, so at least I will not have turned into Jack Nicholson’s character in As Good as It Gets before this summer. (There are otherwise quite a few of those in my neighborhood!) Thought maybe by next…

Back on point again!! It’s interesting how quickly I got back into ballet despite the almost 15 year break. Guess muscle memory does exist!? (Forgot my camera in NY last weekend so I am stuck with my cell phone camera, hence the poor quality of the photo.)
