What I Did Today - Wednesday, April 2, 2008

1. I left for work at 6:10 thinking I'd get there early, for back to back meetings this morning. (If you want to know what an average day is like for me, watch Office Space - it's chillingly close to home.) It was a clear, cool, dry day, ideal driving conditions...nevertheless, for some reason, there were 3 major accidents, causing major backups, even at that early hour...still, I managed to arrive by 7:30, but this commute is getting very old.
2. I worked just 9 hours, which is good...I'm determined to cut back to about 43 hours a week.
3. Back home after work, I put on sweats and running shoes and did a quick, brisk hike around my neighborhood. Flowers are blooming and all the trees are covered in new leaves, and it's not hot yet...it felt really good to be outside.
4. I had a good dinner - grilled salmon and carrots, with a Bartlett pear stuffed with a soft blue cheese and walnuts for dessert.
5. I didn't turn on the tv, but instead am reading James Swanson's terrific book, Manhunt, about the hunt for John Wilkes Booth.
