Monday — alarm rings at 4:45 a.m., I am ready for work and out the door by 5:30 and at work by 8:00. I get off work at five do the crosstown crawl to OC’s office where we eat whatever I picked up for dinner. We go to his Oahu Civic Orchestra rehearsal where he musics and I take photographs, write or just listen (I learned that I do have access to internet at Chamade University, where the rehearsal is held). At 9:00 p.m. band rehearsal is over and we drive home. Since night has slightly less traffic than day, we usually get to the condo by 10:30 p.m.
Tuesday — the same, except OC’s rehearsal is for the Honolulu Commuity Concert Band and there is no internet while I wait. This past Tuesday night there was a horrific accident on the fhighway and we didn’t get in until almost mid-night.
Wednesday — I pick OC up after work and we start home. Depending on “rush” hour traffic, the return home can take up to three hours. Sometimes when we get home I cook, sometimes we stop for a sit-down meal (as opposed to take-out food eaten off styrofoam or wax paper at OC’s desk), the volume of traffic decides which we do.
Thursday — Jazz Band practice ends at 8:30 p.m. rather than 9:00 o’clock, and there is no internet while I wait. We’re usually home by 10:00 p.m.
Friday — looks like Wednesday, though we sometimes stop for a bit of weekend grocery shopping on the way home.
Saturdays — crash and burn.
Sunday — church and prep for the week ahead.
