I am on day four of a glorious 4 day long weekend. Pure bliss. The soundtrack running through my head is Feeling Good by Michael Buble. Our lives are full, full of activities, full of fun, full of work. A few times a year, I notice that my kids are starting to look a little vampirical (very pale faces, big black shadows under their eyes), I start to get cranky and my husband starts escaping to nap at every little opportunity. I am not complaining, I love our life and all of its busyness. It makes me happy and we all thrive in it. But usually just when we start to go a little Twilight over here…a miracle happens. A four day weekend.
Happy sigh. Is there anything better? The first day is spent reading, napping, eating, long walks…that kind of thing. Day two I am thinking about running some errands, maybe fitting in a run. Day 3 is power packed! We are all rested and happy. Time to declutter the house, do some serious gardening, take the dog for a really long walk. And the best part is that there is still ONE MORE DAY OFF!! Today I am preparing everything for the week ahead, good healthy meals, making sure we all have clean clothes, getting a few errands done before the week gets going.
I didn’t get enough reading done, but I am already one run ahead for the week, I have meals ready for the next few days, I am caught up on 4!! tv shows, have gotten some writing done, and finally tackled the back garden which has been my nemesis for the last three years.
Have I mentioned I’m feeling good? When’s the next 4 day weekend???
