I have been home from vacation for 7 days now and today…. TODAY is my first day that I am commitment free AND if all goes as I plan… I will not leave the house today. (If I owned flannel onesie pajamas I can assure you I would be in them for the duration)
This past week had been a can of mixed nuts. I went through a hard anniversary date, ran a book discussion on Left Neglected, moved up in hours (and title) in my marketing job, had my heart hurt, completed the Friends Of the Library Annual Meeting, cleaned up my house, took part in a Sign Making Class, cried much, met with the Penguin Publishing rep for the area, connected with authors for Wine and Words, made a hard decision to cancel an event, had lunch in St Paul with the AMAZING Sue Hall (no… that was not meant to rhyme) who was/is my connection to Opus and Olives the event I modeled Wine and Words after, had a positive meeting about one of the magazines I write for, and returned to my regularly scheduled work out yesterday morning after being out for almost a month.
Yeah. That’s A WEEK.
So…. today, and well the weekend, the plan is to lay as low as possible and re-energize. Of course laying low for me does not mean snuggled up in that coveted onesie eating Cheetos and drinking Diet Dr Pepper while watching hour after hour of Netflix or video games…. Damn tempting though…
No. Alas, to me it it still firing on all cylinders…. just no public involvement. For example… I made a list of weekend goals.
Of course this list will fluctuate as the weekend continues. Already I am thinking… “Oh, I should add on there that I need to do laundry” and “I need to create a Stride and Seek hand out for next Thursday,” and “I need to fix the mailing address info for Camp B’s GiveMN.”
Yeah. Sound familiar?
Anyway on a different note… books came in while I was away…
How are you spending your weekend?
