This is the plan for my last week working in Santa Barbara:
MONDAY June 11th —
Starbucks 5 am. Transcribe as many hours of workshop and regular interviews as possible. Minimum goal: Ventura Workshop transcribed, and Conditional Probability Table made – call the three Gillnetters and ask them to meet you, preferably on Thursday, but Tuesday works too (just need to bring the kiddos)!
MUST REMEMBER – contact the environmental NGOs and ask them to please please please return the forms I sent them…
5 pm – Theodore has his last Tae Kwon Do practice.
All afternoon – keep packing – Arild goes to the shipping place in LA with a U-Haul tomorrow and everything that is being shipped by boat has to be done by then. Did I mention I have bought 22 pillows in 11 months? That takes up space.
TUESDAY June 12th —
Up at 5 am to work from home – no Starbucks – Arild leaves for LA at about 5 am for the entire day. We were originally meant to go with him to do a sightseeing day in LA together. Then we imagined hanging out at the shipping place loading boxes with three kids who were super bored after 3 hours of rush traffic through LA. Decided it was better I stayed home with them.
So we are going to the Butterfly Exhibit and the Museum of Natural History instead – I have a free family ticket – which we need now – cash is low these last few days in Santa Barbara.
If my Ventura fishermen want to see me Wednesday, however, I will pack the kids in the car and go to Ventura Harbor! The kids will love it there LOL
WEDNESDAY June 13th –
My plan is for this to be my last University of California, Santa Barbara, day! I have a meeting planned with a couple of very fantastic colleagues that have helped me out immensely with my research this year – and I have been so fortunate and blessed to have them in my professional life! My research will then be wrapped up – all the data should now be done and the interviews transcribed and the conditional probabitlity tables filled out! I am in data overload now – and I am pretty excited to start working on articles when I get back to Trondheim this summer!
This could also – of course – be the day the Ventura Fishermen are ok seeing me. I will have to rearrange all plans then. Which I will – happily!
4 pm – Theodore is up for an orange belt in Tae Kwon Do
6:30 pm – Nite Moves for the last time in Santa Barbara
After Nite Moves – Apples to Apples at our dear friends´home
THURSDAY June 14th —
Still open – because I plan to either 1) go out fishing with two of the Santa BArbara fishermen if possible or 2) go to Ventura and see my three Gill-netters if I still have not done so. Please God, let me have already seen them… I neither happens, I guess I have a day off – in which case I will insist on going to a couple of wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley 🙂
Night Time – Dinner date with our dear friends Deanna and Cory!
FRIDAY June 15th —
We are planning on going to have lunch with Bellas daycare – YMCA Channel Islands!
Post Lunch — off to Los Angeles!
SATURDAY June 16th —
WE LEAVE FOR COSTA RICA and 3 weeks of vacation!!!
