Video preview of my choir's Rossini concert! Includes bel canto & piano geekiness. The clips of rehearsal are pretty early on - you can see, for example, that my score is not even stapled together yet, and we are mostly staring at the pages - but luckily there's not too much of that, as it's mostly the nerdtastic bits.

This rest of this post is a lot of quotidian minutiae. You have been warned.

I went to the gym last night, but due to (I think) still being stiff from Monday's weights workout, and a little short of sleep, I had no get-up-and-go whatsoever. It was like running through lead. So I didn't attempt intervals at all, just did half an hour on the elliptical at a good pace, then went home.

I had time to do laundry before bed, but instead I decided to turn in early. This turned out to be a good idea since I woke up around 5:30 AM and took some time to get back to sleep.

My To Do lists almost always start with "laundry." This is because I hate seeing it pile up, so one load a week is ideal, with an extra load now and again when I need to do sheets and towels and, in winter, sweaters and hoodies and the like. This likely won't change, but I wish I could calm down more about not getting it done promptly. I think it would help if I had my own laundry room and could hide the baskets there where I couldn't see them, but I don't, so I see them constantly. It's a small thing, but irksome.

Next week is Concert Week for the Rossini, so I'll be in dress rehearsals on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, 3 hours each night. This means it would behoove me to do my laundry this weekend. I will also probably skip doing weights on Monday night, as six hours of standing on a stone floor is really hard on me, even when wearing Danskos with a soft insole, and it is much worse with stiff muscles, I have learned. The elliptical should be okay Monday, though. I will no doubt take Thursday off from the gym as well and go to bed early. I might try intervals (15 minutes max workout time) on Tuesday or Wednesday before rehearsals, if I'm not too wiped out.

I also have a huge new batch of books to look at for the jury thing. Luckily, some of the ones that arrived were ones I'd already read, so that's a few less to deal with. I have another couple of weeks, then will be done with this committment for now.

The way you keep on top of laundry is one of the things I admire about you.

Of course, that admiration is layered by pure envy. I remember my single days, when I'd dread the smoky, filthy laundromat and let the laundry pile up for 6 weeks. Now, I think we do 6 to 8 loads each week. Of course, I launder more of our bedding than normal people due to indoor allergies, use cloth for wiping up nearly everything, and we are cloth diapering.

All those steps hinder me if I'm tired from exercise, plus I have to make sure I have quarters! Just got a whole roll, hooray!

It is my DREAM to have my own machines.

Quotidian minutiae! My kind of thing! And I also just love the sound of those words.
