Our weekends are pretty lazy.  We often don’t even think about doing anything (including showering) until lunch.  I’m okay with that most of the time.  We work hard during the week and a lazy weekend is good for the soul. And I’ve seen people who pack so much into the weekend, it’s as stressful as the week.  But sometimes I wish the weekends weren’t so lazy.  I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but now, I’m trying to do something about it, at least for myself.  This morning, I was out of the house by 9:30, off to the post office and Staples.  I came back and lazed around, but now I’m about to make lunch, do some laundry and make a run to Home Depot for some paint to begin a long put-off project.  With Mr. Geeky sick, I don’t expect him to be active this weekend, but I hope the kids will kick into gear a little.  They are, at the moment, cleaning the kitchen, but I’m hoping to recruit them to do some more things around the house.  I think our balance has tipped in the wrong direction a bit, and I’d like to tip it back.

  1. Hey Laura,
    Love your blog…had your Dad to the farm Saturday night. We talked about the Happiness Project, and I actually bought my own copy and finished reading it yesterday. It has a lot of good points but, for me, at this point, I am still too sad to start a true happiness project. I decided to put the book aside for a while but will come back to it when my grieving lessens. I am having my big Easter Hunt at the farm on the Saturday before Easter and would love for you all to come down. Thanks for the note…we will take care of your dad and hope to see you all soon.

  2. Hey Pam! Thanks for visiting. I totally understand about the Happiness Project. I haven’t read the book yet, but read the blog. We might make it for the Easter Hunt–will definitely let you know!
