Rest day today for me. (I love rest days!).
Yesterday - an hour of xc skiing at our local Nordic centre, about an hour's drive east of the city. The unusual winter-like weather we're experiencing has most people around here in a state of homicidal rage, but the xc skiers are sure happy - I saw lots of big smiles yesterday: the ski conditions are perfect. Given the forecast for the upcoming week, we may even be able to squeeze in another day of skiing next weekend.
Then, because I was feeling antsy about how under-exercised I have been in the last month, due to work travel, family stuff, etc., I went to the gym in the evening and did a strength training/cardio intervals workout. I was very glad to get that in - I felt great afterwards and it's nice to be back to strength training.
My daughter has two big exams this week: today she's writing the DELF
, which is a 2.5 hour exam administered by the Ministry of Education in France to test French-Language proficiency, and on Thursday, she has an exam in piano administered by the Royal Conservatory of Music. She's pretty stressed about both.
I was thinking of telling her she needed to clean up her room this weekend (it was a complete disaster in there), but then decided not to - she had so much studying to do, I figured it wasn't fair to pile anything else on her. Then on Sunday morning I heard the sound of bustling coming from her room, followed by the sound of vacuuming.
Looked in - her room was spotless. Shortly afterwards she came out - she had found $300 in her room while cleaning up, and insisted she had to go to the bank Right Now to deposit it. I looked at her a bit quizzically, and she sheepishly grinned and admitted she was procrastinating.
She did eventually get back to studying.
