I said on Friday how excited I was to have so few plans this weekend. But normally when I go into a weekend with few plans, I still make a ton of them last minute and rush around from one thing to the next. I have fun but I could also use some more time to relax. This weekend, with the rain as my excuse, I was the ultimate homebody. Aside from dinner at a neighborhood restaurant on Friday, playing a sunny soccer game on Saturday and taking an unconventional (read: martial arts) yoga class on Sunday, I barely left my apartment. I still made a long to-do list and got all but three things on it done.
But along with cleaning, cooking, doing laundry, and buying plane tickets and supplies for my summer trip, I also had lots of fun in the comfort of my own home. I read, watched tv, fell asleep during a movie, played board games, took an afternoon nap, drank beer and tea, and ate cheesy comfort food. And I spent many quality hours with Joshua, who I barely got to see during the week last week.
Now that it's Monday morning, I feel well rested and ready for the week. Sitting around does make part of me just want to sit around more but it also gave me the perfect chance to unwind and get some needed things done. The only thing that could have made the weekend better would be to have had a front porch to sit on to watch, and smell, the rain fall.
How was your weekend? Do you tend to be a homebody or are you always on the go?
