A Busy Three-Day Weekend

long weekends

Ahh, another 3-day weekend just about done and dusted, as my British friend Janine would say. I love that as a teacher, I get all of these extra days off here and there throughout the school year! You can get so much done and then rest the extra day! I am a firm believer of the mental and physical health benefits of a 3-day weekend.

I don’t know why, but I feel like I’ve been a couch potato the past three days, which is weird because I definitely have NOT been a couch potato. Look at all that I’ve done:

  • Took my almost 11-year-old dog out for a one mile walk.
  • Washed, dried, and put away a total of EIGHT loads of laundry!
  • Went grocery shopping.
  • Read a few chapters in a book I just recently picked up from the library.
  • Cleaned my house.
  • Played out in the backyard with my kiddos.
  • Watched 3 DVDs, one of which I had never seen before: The Princess Bride.
  • Caught up with an old friend.
  • Attended the open house of my husband’s robotics team.
  • Wrote and published two blog posts here.
  • Meal-planned for the week.
  • Finally hung up this cute Japanese wind chime that I had bought in San Francisco a couple of months ago.
  • Donated a few of my daughter’s outgrown clothes to a local charity/thrift shop.
  • Organized various charging cables for my different devices.
  • Didn’t lose my sh*t once the past 3 days!

So as you can see, I really don’t know why I feel that I should have accomplished more. This seems like plenty! Doesn’t it?

Thanks for stopping by! ❀
