Our Weekend

This weekend was exactly what I needed.

The kids were with me until late Friday afternoon, but I had the 'official' weekend to myself. I got to go out to dinner and see the new Hunger Games movie with a friend, I finished my Christmas shopping, I made it to a yoga class, I slept in on Sunday, and I clocked a couple of hours of reading time. It was lovely.

I was also super productive around the house. I caught up on some work, studied for the final in my herb class, did a bunch of crafting, and a whole lot of laundry.

I don't think I realized how much I needed an around-the-house weekend without many plans. But, I did. I filled every minute if it with either things that needed to get done, or things that I always want to do but don't have the time. I am feeling rejuvenated, and much less stressed about getting everything done for the holidays.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
