This weekend my mom and her husband came to visit so I did no work for two complete days. It was glorious. We had fun, we played games, we ate, we drank, we shopped. I spent a lot more time just looking at and engaging with my daughter. I realized there has not been enough quality time between Hubs and I.
I'm so happy they visited. They allowed me to take a break. They allowed me to be happy from just living life where for the past few weeks my happiness has mainly been derived from crossing things off my to-do list.
As I settle back into routine I'm trying to figure out a way to give myself more completely work free time. Perhaps that's a no work on Saturdays policy, I'm not sure yet. What I do know is that I want more days like this weekend. More carefree and fun times. More time away from my phone and computer. More of the time that really matters.
When is the last time you took a break?
