When the cat is away

Dave is out of town, so I've pretty much completely given up on my normal routine. I would, on any give day of the week, come home from the gym, cook dinner and collapse in front of the TiVo. Maybe I'd knit a little, then I'd shower and climb into bed.

So far tonight I have:

Tended my garden
Started on my sister's Thai silk baby sling
Started on my Thai fisherman's pants
Mended one shirt, one suit jacket and one pair of slacks
Had one Heineken and a mish-mash sandwich of leftovers
... and right now I'm haveing a cup of vanilla ice cream with ...
another Heineken.

I'm going to go finish those Thai fisherman's pants.

Good night. I love vanilla ice cream and beer. Yum.

Tell me. What time do you go to the gym, come home, and cook dinner. Because since I've been working it's been so hard to get to the gym and eat dinner before 10pm, so I don't do it.

Well... that's just it. When I'm on my normal routine I get off work at 6 p.m., hit the gym at about 6:30, run on the treadmill for about 3 or 5 miles, depending on how much energy I have or how long I have before yoga class at 7:30, which ends at around 9 p.m. That puts us eating dinner some time around 9:30 or 10 p.m.

I'll usually watch one show after that while I knit and then shower and crash.
