A Weekend Without Computer? Refreshing.

weekend without computerI love the weekends. It’s such a great feeling because I know I can relax and just catch up on home life. But with that relief always comes the overwhelming desire to “get ahead” for the week. I can’t seem to let that feeling go. Especially on Sundays.

But this past weekend was different. Those feelings were still there, but instead I kept myself busy. Watched the half marathon Saturday morning outside my house. Shopping and margaritas with a girlfriend for Cinco De Mayo. Kentucky Derby party in the evening. Sunday chores and grocery shopping. Lunch on a patio with a friend. Then an evening cookout with friends at their house.

I got home last night and walked into my office to set my purse down and I saw my computer. I’d only touched it once to Windex my desk that morning but it had been OFF the whole weekend. I looked at it hard to think really hard about a time I might have opened it up. But I never did. It was such a great feeling.

I actually went the whole weekend not playing on my computer to motivate myself to do extra work. I built on real relationships with friends and family instead. I took care of my home. Took great advantage of the amazing weather. I completely refreshed myself for the week ahead, which was better than any additional work I could have gotten in.

Cause now I’m really to attack Monday. Are you?

How did you relax this weekend?
