Looking Forward to Nothing
No ladies volleyball tonight. The state of the art gym has a malfunction with the state of the art bleacher system. They won't close, which means three of the 6 courts are useless. This happens at least twice a year. I suppose the school is now 15 years old, and mechanicals do break. As much as I like my mid week outing, we were scheduled for the late game, which means no one really goes out after. I'm actually a bit relieved. Last weekend was anything but restful with two events, plus an impromptu "crisis" resolution for my mother in law on Saturday, plus the Renaissance Fair all day Sunday. We have plans of sorts this weekend, but other than the movie with DD1, nothing is on a hard core timeline. As I wrote a few days ago, we have two weekends with nothing at the end of October, and I am looking forward to a blank slate.
Anyone else get like that? My life is not so exciting and busy that I need to schedule in me time-that phrase irks me to no end anyway. I just have come to the realization that I like a good sleep in with no alarm clock on non work/school days. I like being able to binge watch a few episodes on Netflix, have a movie day, or read a book cover to cover without interruptions. While I am not there yet, perhaps once I get the minimalist vibe going in my home where my housework is down to just care and maintenance I can look forward to whole weekends of nothing? Perhaps not, but those blank calendar pages, and tonight's red X through volleyball on the calendar look pretty good to me right now.
