Taking the weekend off

I’ve been trying pretty hard to get out of the house, especially on nice days, and especially on weekends. For the past several weekends, I’ve done a pretty good job of doing it. Two weeks ago I went bike camping with Ted, last weekend I was out at Filmed By Bike and getting my new wheels and a bunch of other stuff.

However, all of this “leaving the house” stuff has left my house in a pretty rough state. I’ve been trying really hard lately to keep up with some basic housekeeping tasks and my busy weekends have been making it difficult to do.

So this weekend I’m taking the weekend off. I am giving myself permission to do absolutely nothing. I have a few small things at home I want to do (and, I do *really* want to do them) but if I stay in all weekend and read, then I’ve accomplished what I set out to do.

This all ties in with some stuff I’m working on around “intent”, and I hope to have some more to say about that soon. This weekend I’m giving myself permission to stay inside. It certainly doesn’t hurt that it’s supposed to rain all weekend!

  1. Hooray for slacking! I’m trying to read High Rise so we can go see it.

    I suspect it isn’t the weekend stuff, it’s the “being gone all week” stuff that makes it hard. You can’t do 15 minutes of chores every day and stay caught up.

    1. For me it’s definitely weekend stuff. that’s when I have slated to do those cleaning things. I haven’t yet worked my way up to “clean a little bit, every day”, though I do want to get there!
