There’s not a whole lot to report back for what I accomplished over this past week. Unusual, you say? Yes. Why, you ask? Well, once a month I simply schedule “A Day of Nothing” in my home. I HIGHLY recommend this. Let me elaborate.
One of these days I’ll do a post on “A Day in the Life of Kristen”, but until then, just know that I have a lot going on. Too much going on. And, I mean, we don’t even have any kids yet – I can’t even imagine what I’ll do when that happens. (No, I can imagine, I’ll be saying “NO” a lot, ha!)
So when you fly around 24/7 doing everything and anything, and dragging your poor husband along for the ride, sometimes you just need…NOTHING.
Now, let me clarify: I used to have “A Day of Nothing” once a month on a regular basis. And then we moved, and we haven’t had that since then. However, since we have house guests coming for the holiday weekend, I KNEW I needed to relax a bit and gear up for a busy weekend. And my husband gladly agreed to participate, as well. So, when I get to Saturday below, you’ll see why the bullet points are what they are!
Accomplished on Friday:
- Cleaned the entire house
- Did the grocery shopping for the week
Accomplished on Saturday:
- Slept until 9:30 a.m. (WHAT?! I can’t remember the last time I slept that late!!!)
- Ate cereal for breakfast (i.e. no cooking)
- Sat on the couch and played around with social media
- Ate sandwiches for lunch (i.e. still no cooking)
- Sat on the couch and browsed blogs
- Got a little bored…so I washed the bedding from the master bedroom, baked a couple of potatoes and threw together some green beans and seasoning (while my hubby put some steaks on the grill)
- Sat on the couch and pondered everything I did NOT get done…and was totally okay with it
- Painted my toenails and blew out and barrel-curled my hair (gotta have some girl time in there, right?)
Accomplished on Sunday:
- Sunday School, choir and church
- Took a nap
- Cooked some Baked Penne for dinner
- Did a little bit of “week-planning”
So there you have it! Our next “Day of Nothing” will either be on July 20 or 27. You should join us!
