Having a three day weekend to kick off the summer season was such a delight. I know it’s not over yet, but I’m currently relishing in every little bit of it. It didn’t occur to me how much I needed one until it was actually here. I happen to be in a career where there is always work to do. Lately, it’s all I’ve been doing and it didn’t feel like it was a problem until it became one. Don’t feel sorry for me. I chose it for myself and for the most part, it is incredibly rewarding. Going into this weekend though, I’ve had to create more boundaries for myself than I ever had. Saturday, I had plans to head up to Calistoga with two of my close friends. I’d never been before and was so excited to spend some time in wine country. Because it was one of those all day trips, there just wasn’t going to be a time for me to work. Sunday was my cleaning, errands, and work day. And Monday was reserved for enjoying the last part of my weekend before going back to work. Kevin is also flying in for the day and of course, I don’t want to be working when there’s so many other things that we could be doing.
Readers, I hope you had a great weekend! I’d love to hear how you separate out your weekends and find balance or are you all just lucky enough that you don’t even have to think about work ever?!
