A full schedule is overwhelming to me. I enjoy my weekends being open and free of any big, time consuming plans. I am a creature of habit and tend to stick to an exact routine 7 days a week.
Monday-Friday: work; gym; dinner; tv; sleep
Saturday: small errands, gym; light house cleaning; nap; relax
Sunday: sleep in; additional errands; major couch time; softball game; relax
When something comes up in the middle of the week, I try not to panic. But seriously-don't mess with my schedule. I need at least 7 days notice so I can rearrange my week. It is sad but true.
That being said, this weekend is FULL of events and I am really looking forward to it. As I sit around on weekends doing nothing, complaining of boredom, I know there are a lot of fun things I could be doing but just don't feel like it. I like knowing that I had a weekend to wind down and take a load off since my Monday-Friday takes a lot out of me.
This weekend includes:
-A trip to Wine Country with two good friends
-A BBQ/Baby Shower
-A hike (I hope!)
-A birthday party for my sister
It should be a weekend packed with lots of fun but with enough rest time that I don't feel overwhelmed. But the fun doesn't stop there! The next 2 weeks offer lots to look forward to:
-Mumford & Sons concert on Wednesday
-Lunch with a graduating student on Friday
-An anniversary weekend to a destination we have never been!
Basically, the next two weeks are going to be super fun and the rest of the summer is going to be boring and lame.
