A Week to Rest, Maybe?
Hello dear friends! As you know, we’re coming off down from nearly two weeks of non-stop human interactions. By my count I spent roughly fourteen days in a row going out and seeing people. For an introvert, that’s a lot of days. So this week I promised myself I wouldn’t make any unnecessary plans. I’m not going to fill my empty space in my week, I’m just going to let it be and enjoy a few days of sitting at home with my kittens and my cross stitch.
We’ll see how long this free week lasts. I’m afraid it won’t be long considering this week is the Pittsburgh arts festival and we always go, sometimes more than once. It’s all week, after all. We’ll be going tonight with the sisters and a high school friend of my husbands, but I suspect we’ll also probably end up going at some later point with the whole family as well. Not sure when that’ll be, but it’ll probably happen. Also, I have to make muffins for Saturday, but that’s not until the end of the week. I’ll probably make them Friday morning or maybe Thursday evening. We’ll see. So that’s a thing. I thought for a brief moment that Saturday was empty, but it is not. I should probably put the church thing on the calendar. Though I don’t know if they need us or if they just want the muffins.
But, barring any other pop-up events, I should have today and tomorrow and Wednesday to just hang around my house and chill a little bit… before going out again in the evening. We’re very busy people. We started up a Bible study on Wednesdays which I’m pretty pumped about, actually. I mean that does take Wednesdays off the table, but it’s worth it, I think. And we still have three other days generally sometimes free.
So actually I’ll still be going out every day this week, just in the evenings most days, leaving me free to enjoy myself alone with the cats during the day. I was kind of hoping for a day to spend in my pajamas, but I guess that’s not going to happen. Ah well, someday I’ll be able to spend a whole day without putting on real pants. That will be lovely, when it happens… if it happens. And to think, only a few months ago my husband was concerned that I wasn’t getting out enough. Funny how things like that change. I think it probably helps that I’m gaining more friends in our area. It’s nice to be able to see people without driving an hour each way. Not that I don’t still drive an hour to see people. There are some very important people still in Beaver County that require seeing. I think being used to all the driving helps too, and the podcasts to listen to on my way to and from also help.
Maybe this week won’t be quite as restful as I thought it would be, but next week is looking very clear thus far (knock on wood) so maybe then I can get the full day of rest that I so desire. Perhaps next Monday I can lay around in my comfy clothes and play video games with my cats and then spend the whole evening with just my husband. I don’t think that’s too much to ask, yeah? That seems pretty reasonable to me. Have a lovely day, my friends.
