scenes from the weekend
I feel like I "pulled it off" this weekend. My goal was to have a balance of relaxation, fun and family time mixed with some chores and laundry. It worked! It still felt a little jam packed--like I would have liked even more unstructured time with the boys, playing games or something, but I realize with only two days in a weekend, some may be more quiet and others will have more outings. I'm really caught up in pondering the weekends right now, so bear with me.
One really nice thing is that I have found a Saturday morning yoga class that I love. I think I am going to make it a regular thing and I'm thrilled about that. It is at our athletic club so it's "free" (in a way), and I can relax by the pool afterwards. Ken and the boys met me there for a family swim. Just about my idea of a perfect afternoon. Other things we did: out for frozen yogurt, a "late night" errand to Trader Joe's (the boys had an awesome time going around the store together looking for "Clark the Shark"), a beach trip, making cookies (not macaroons, alas, but those will be next weekend), and making a nice steak dinner at home on Sunday.
How is the start of the week treating you? I'm happy to say I got in a short walk today after work, so that is a good start for me.
