We are heading into a long weekend and there are certain things I look forward to:
How quiet my neighborhood seems during the day.
Binge watching TV with my husband
If weather permits, going to the park for a casual stroll.
Last minute weekend getaways!
Reading for long stretches at a time.
Not thinking the following sentence: “I should really get to bed now.”
Conversation. Conversation where you don’t watch the clock or the phone.
Did I mention sleeping in?
Allowing myself to be still for longer periods of time.
Eating at restaurants I haven’t tried yet.
Board games and cards..there have been many many many hours during a long weekend spent at my sister’s and parents’ house in a Monopoly, Uno, Scrabble or Phase 10 battle over the years.
Feeling grateful as I head off to see my family tomorrow to enjoy lots of the things on this list.
