Unwinding from a BUSY Weekend!

Monday, September 02, 2013

Sleepy, yes! Motivated - NO! This morning's sendoff of my husband's granddaughter and her parents was a down and up situation! I spent the weekend, cooking, ushering, chatting, and being as hospitable as a working woman can be with a 3-day weekend. These 3-day extravaganza's are few and far between and I usually unwind and relax.

Friday night - "they're coming, they'll be here about 9", he says! And, change of plans, they decided to leave on Saturday morning. Saturday "you HAVE to have a hair appt now, when you know you're getting company?". There was no indicator, no timing of a Saturday arrival so I suppose I was to sit and wait, but that's just not me.

Saturday afternoon - "they're here!". Yes, the three year old adorable princess and her parents. Cookout, visiting, cleaning... you know the drill!

Sunday, I give the mama a break and my husband takes his son and granddaughter on the light rail, to the park, on the horseback carriage ride. I take the mama and my own daughter and we shop, shop, drive, shop. Then we all meet back at the house. We HAVE to go to the local festival together. We started out just fine, then a downpour of "cats and dogs" along with lightening. Late nights, long days and I'm tired!

Sunday is "bye bye Grandma Nanci" day. Push off is early and I look around the house that's full of leftover visitor stuff, empty glasses, dirty carpet, sheets to wash etc. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every minute, but now - "I AM TIRED". Where did my long weekend go? Now, it's recovery time and I'm enjoying my crochet habit on the couch after I cleaned the downstairs of my house.

I'm playing the mind games. "Get up - clean your room" "go to the gym" " eat breakfast" "call your best friend" etc! But the reality of all of this is - I need a break! I'm tired, and I just need a rest!!!

Doing the best I can at the moment, but whew.... BUSY Weekend! That's all I can say! emoticon

    Despite what all the gurus say there is no such thing as multi tasking. Despite our advanced state of evolution we can still only do one thing at a time.

    Take some time for you

    It healthy

    Much Love

    Take care of yourself. As one lady told me when I was young... no one will ever remember or love you for having a perfectly clean house. emoticon

    I for one REALLY do get what you are saying. Visitors are wonderful, but oh the clean up afterwards and the getting some rest yourself is a tough call. I'm busy with spring cleaning now because my nephew is coming home in Dec and bringing the future fiance to meet the family. Since EVERYONE lives on my property...the buck tends to stop with me. My sisters place (flat attached to my home) is just a little bigger than a bedsitter, so I'm going to have to put the dear girl (hoping she is that) in my spare room which only became spare 2 days ago. Shoo never a break. I didn't get empty nest syndrome...didn't get a chance to. lol

    I say unwind and do only whatever it is that you would like to do today. You deserve it. It is nice to have company, but I am always ready for a nice break afterwards. I work as a receptionist for a veterinary clinic, and I have to really strategically place social appointments, because I just get tired of people all day :)
