Before we get to the post, can we all give an AMEN for a weekend update on a Monday? I mean, last week I talked about not doing so hot with recaps and then BOOM, one this week. How bout them apples? Or peaches, mmmmmm, peaches. Moving on now.
I had very little plans for this weekend, which in itself is something incredible. Our weekends have bee nonstop recently and Le Husband has been traveling a ton for work. A clean slate of a weekend meant SLEEP - ANOTHER AMEN PLEASE - and getting things done around the house. Friday afternoon I came home from work and just plopped down on the couch because I finally could. Le Husband came home and we immediately got to work on our chicken and waffles dinner. It was SOOOO delicious and just a perfect chill meal to end the week.
Bedtime was early for me because I was exhausted. Saturday morning we didn't move until 10am because our bodies were like 'nope, sleep' so we listened. A cup of coffee or two later and it was full steam ahead with the list of things we wanted to accomplish. Le Husband wanted to build a new bathroom vanity, I wanted to vacuum, clean the house, reorganize the linen closet, do laundry, clean up the master bedroom and study. Definitely an ambitious list but if something didn't happen nbd. Well guess what, we started projects then took a break for lunch and boom, passed out on the couch.
Yup, our bodies gave us the big old NOPE, you're doing nothing today and we just rolled with it. I'm talking watching the NCIS marathon, taking a nap off an on, ordering pizza in which was followed by soft serve ice cream unproductive day. Y'all, it was glorious upon glorious. Sure I felt lazy as a sloth but it was something we N E E D E D to recharge and I'm so glad we didn't fight it just to 'be productive'.
Sunday morning we slept in again [weird after so much rest the day before] then got after it all, checking things off the list one at a time. We didn't get to everything but a lot was taken care of and as I write this I feel soooooo good about the split of days. Le Husband and I needed this so badly. For our bodies. For our sanity. For ourselves. For US together. With all his traveling and all my teaching we've started to become ships passing in the evenings or just sending time together with other people too. We haven't had time to just be us, husband and wife, best friend to best friend with no deadline to meet. Just together with nothing to do but watch the wind blow by... and eat of course.
No pictures, nothing exciting for Instagram and nothing really blogworthy. Except, it was one of the best weekends I've had in a really, really, really long time. Wishing you a fabulous week :)
