Happy Sunday everyone! I’m finally getting back on track with blogging so my apologies if I’ve been delayed on commenting, there is a lot to still catch up on!
Being the crazy planner that I am, I seem to always have something to do. Running errands, cleaning, catching up on blogs, newspapers, magazines, etc. There is ALWAYS something that I could be doing. I could run myself into the ground with little things to do. It’s my weakness and I don’t give myself enough time to relax.
Running around every weekend usually lasts for a few weeks and then something comes up and I force myself to be a shut-in.
I may fight it, but I love it.
And because last week was pretty crazy with Mexico, a long day of travel, getting caught up at work and of course, this f*cking cold that will NOT GO AWAY, this weekend I forced myself to be a shut-in
Okay that’s a lie, I was a semi shut-in because I did have a few things around my apartment to get done, but still, I was as shut-in.
When I go into this mode, I usually do the following things:
- Spend the majority of the day on the couch
- Clean out the DVR
- Read for several hours
- Enjoy peace and quiet
- Have shoe fashion shows
- Back up my hard drive (not a metaphor)
- Practice putting my hair in odd styles
Yes, that is my idea of a great weekend. Sure, I think about errands to run and things I could be doing to be productive, but seriously, sometimes you need to give yourself a break. Trust me, those things will always be there waiting to be done.
And as result of my lazy behavior this weekend, I’m pretty relaxed, and am now about to enter into deep mental prep for a short week. Serenity now.
What about you? Do you have shut-in weekends? And if so, what are they like?
