This weekend went through my fingers like water. Absolutely nothing of substance was accomplished this weekend. I spent most of my weekend inside the house. The pool is closed until next year. I had no energy to exercise. We did not go out in the sun. Gabe made a couple of errands, but I stayed home with the girls. Isabel is so moody lately that I cringe at the thought of going out with the girls. Every time I do, I wind up feeling frazzled, not relaxed.

I went out once Sunday afternoon, to buy Paula a pair of sneakers for volleyball. She had practice tonight and her first game is next weekend. That was the most productive thing I did all weekend. Plus a few loads of laundry.

My inactivity was deliberate in part. The past week had been so hectic at work that I needed to unwind. But today I can't help but feel like I squandered my weekend. I don't want to go back to work today. The rush begins anew, as there's several deadlines this week.

At least I did not make a sorry spectacle of myself, like some other people having an aimless weekend.


  1. I always wish on mondays that I had ONE MORE DAY off...just one more day.... to revel in before having to go back to business as usual.

  2. I tend to do this with my weekends as well, Inrid. Lots of great plans and things to accomplish, then hour by hour I sit and let them slip away. At 9 o'clock last night I was finally cleaning up the kitchen! Sadly, that's all I got done. And I hate it when I feel like my weekend was wasted, like it didn't really count for anything, so I wonder why I do it.
