Ahhh, a nice long weekend was just what I needed, well, half a week + a weekend was more like it. Truthfully, I could use more - these last two days back to reality have been brutal! Over my holiday weekend, all I had on my agenda was dinner at noon on Thanksgiving Day. That’s it.
Not having anything to do is truly a luxury to me. I value my time at home to simply be.
There were days where I didn’t get out of my pj’s or leave the house. Though it wasn’t my intention, much purging and organizing was accomplished. De-cluttering always makes me feel better.
I watched movies, played with my kids, read, and ate way too much. I’m pretty sure I gained a pound for each day I was off.
After feeling burnt out and empty for way too long, I’m beginning to feel like myself again. I still have a ways to go, but I’m getting there. I discovered that the minutia of every day has been wearing me down, for quite some time now. I hate that. Lucky for me, I've learned that the cure is being home with my family.
From here on out, I am vowing to keep my priorities in order, stay in the present, stress less, and count my blessings every day.
