We’ve been pretty busy these past couple of weeks. Something I’ve learned recently – there IS such a thing as “too much of a good thing.” Packing your weekends full of crazy awesomeness looks fun on a calendar, but after a month of not spending any time at home just recuperating from the work week was taking its toll. Between several concerts, parties, visiting friends and family, and the continued house hunt, I could tell I was getting burnt out quickly. So with the upcoming month of April looking just as busy for me and the Mister, we did a whole lot of nothing this weekend.
Unfortunately, he was swamped with work and was forced to spend most of the weekend on his laptop NOT doing fun things, but I did my best to keep him company.
And yes, I’m now halfway through reading Catching Fire (the second book in the Hunger Games series) and LOVING IT. I always do this. I’m always pretending not to care until the hype gets to me and I curiously crack open the book still swearing up and down it’s not going to be that great. And then I spend the entire weekend unable to put the book down. Did that with Twilight. I’m not proud of it. The only time I’ve been able to pull the hipster “I liked them before they were cool” phrase was with the Harry Potter series and I owe that one entirely to my Great Aunt’s discovery after only the first two were written and a very long and boring drive home from the beach.
As for the house hunt, well that’s not likely to give my nerves a break anytime soon, but I did at least avoid looking at places online for a day or two. We’ll find a place we like eventually. My continued panic and constant “refresh” of the craigslist ad page isn’t helping, so I welcomed the little break. And while we may not have a place to live yet, we have a flourishing future garden. I managed to plant our tomatoes, peppers, and herbs this weekend. Tutorial on how to DIY a self-watering planter soon. 🙂 Sorry to be so MIA from the site. I think a break from projects and blogging about projects was equally necessary for my sanity.
