Over the Weekend


I’ve often said if I could work 4 days a week and have a 3-day weekend every single week, I’d be much more on top of things! LOVE a 3-day weekend!

Accomplished on Friday:

  • Grocery shopping

Accomplished on Saturday:

  • Laundry
  • Cleaned the entire house
  • Enjoyed a friends birthday party
  • Visited with my parents
  • Shopped for decor/house stuff at Michael’s and Target (SCORE!!! Got some awesome storage ottomans for $12 each!!!)
  • Shopped for my hubby at Old Navy (SCORE again!!! Got a couple pairs of khakis for him on sale!)
  • Cooked dinner
  • Organized the coffee cup cabinet
  • Hubby also mowed, edged and “weed-eated” the yard, and then blew away all the mess (I gotta give him some credit for things accomplished!)

Accomplished on Sunday:

  • More laundry
  • Choir and church
  • Took a lovely nap
  • Prepared dinner for good friends
  • Enjoyed lots of food and fellowship!

Accomplished on Monday:

  • Even more laundry (do you see why I used the pic on this blog that I did?!)
  • Sorted through all of our housewarming gifts. cleaned everything, put it all away and made a list for thank-you cards
  • Decorated the Holiday Shelf “patriotically” for Memorial Day (and will leave it up for the 4th of July!) Will blog on that another day!
  • Finally got to watch “The Hobbit”! (J won’t watch it with me – he’s not into that kind of thing, so I had been waiting for the opportune time to view the almost-3-hours-long flick. Loved it!!! Did you see it? Whatcha think?)
  • Prepared lunch for my hubby
  • Organized the closet in our office
  • Baked cookies
  • Iced cupcakes for J’s work team’s food day
  • Cooked dinner
  • Organized my jewelry

I know it seems like a long list, but it really wasn’t that bad. I feel refreshed and relaxed, believe it or not!

I was exceedingly aware of the fact that it was all made possible by those who died protecting our freedom. So thankful!

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

  1. I am tired from just reading how productive you were this weekend! Whew! I wish I could have been half as productive as you were. My laundry pile is now spilling into the hallway, yikes. Imma go and start that right now!

  2. Speaking of laundry…I think there’s a pile somewhere waiting for me! Long weekends are great! My husband works 10 hour days, so 4 day weeks. It’s nice to have him around for the extra day.

  3. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

    • Thanks! And honestly, I just plan a week ahead of time. On Sundays I go through and plan what I’m going to write about each day the next week, and then I know the direction I’m headed. It’s in my mind at that point, and then it doesn’t take too long to get it out into a blog post. Hope that helps!
