It was a pretty chill weekend in our house. It was one of those weekends rarely comes around where there isn’t much on the calendar. Friday night, I got my hair cut. Saturday, my daughter had hockey practice. Sunday, I didn’t get out of my sweat pants. It was the perfect weekend to attack my very long and neglected to-do list. What I should have done and what I actually did were on opposite ends of the spectrum. While I wasn’t a complete sloth, my to-do list was still pretty neglected.
I did take manage to take advantage of a nice MN Spring day and go for a run with my daughter. I am using the term run very loosely. It was more of a 3 mile walk with 5 bursts of running. Let me define “bursts of running”, it was a minute or two of slow, pain full running. It was tough. This body has gotten big over the last few years and moving it requires a lot of effort. I survived but it kicked my butt. Evidently, I am too slow for my daughter. She took off without me.
I have some big plans this spring and summer that is going to require me to dust off the running shoes. My motivation is starting to come back as the snow goes away. I may have to keep bringing my daughter because she was a good coach.
One thing I didn’t do and I am now regretting it is playing hockey. Our team won the state championship!!! I marked myself as unavailable since we had kid commitments. But when the calendar cleared, I never changed to be available as I thought it might be nice not to be over-scheduled. I think I still made the right choice, but I sure missed playing and so wish I could have celebrated with the team. I vowed that next year I will be a full-time player again.
Even though I didn’t get much done it was still I good weekend chill. I am not sure when I’ll get the opportunity to laze around again for awhile!
