This weekend was a much-needed exercise in something I’m terrible at. Sitting my ass down and relaxing. It’s been a rough, rough week or so at work, and my body has been really upset with me. Hips ache, Aleve is on a drip, and rest has not been as restful as I would like it. That’s a completely different post for a completely different day, however.
So I started the weekend on the couch. I didn’t have to work on Good Friday, and though I thought about it, I could not physically bring myself to open that laptop and answer the emails that had begun to roll in. And it was for the best!
I was laying on the couch and received an awesome phone call from a friends who let me know that she and her husband were expecting! How cool! It’s getting weirder and weirder. Me and my friends are continuing to do adult things, and yet, in some ways, I feel like a kid still. At what point do I become an adult? My husband and I are talking about our home, our dreams, our travel, perhaps even plans for kids, and yet, I still find reality television hysterical.
But at any rate, after I spent some time on the couch, and did a slow few miles around the neighborhood, when I realized that I’d made no plans for the evening. A friend texted, stated that she was in a similar plight, and we made plans to meet at the Whole Foods for dinner and drinks. It was nice because I didn’t get too crazy, and I fell into bed with Austin at the end of the night.
Saturday, we didn’t do a lot, BUT we did make a great purchase in a mandoline to make chips out of sweet potatoes. It was okay – I think next time, I’m going to roast the chips in my vegetable dehydrator. I also was extremely pleased – my 13.5lb bag of Arm & Hammer finally arrived from Amazon, and I got to start some spring cleaning, along with the Bissell that showed up.
Easter Sunday, we met some friends for brunch, grab some more cards for me to write some letters, and when I was away running a lap in the State Park, Austin put together a hammock that’s been sitting in the house all winter.
It was a great, restful weekend, and were leading up to a nutty week. I’m gearing up for tons on Monday, our staff retreat, as well as hydrating throughout for a big race on Sunday, which I don’t even want to talk about right now.
What were you up to this weekend?
