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.

  1. Wow! When I accidentally discover that I have a "nothing" evening, I fill it up with sewing. And then discover the next day that I forgot a meeting... oops!

    1. That could very well be the case-I may have forgotten about something that should be on the calendar. I think I missed a meeting last night, but it is one of those that starts before I am typically in town, and it is hit or miss when I make it, and I ended up staying late at the office. Not being a crafty sort, it is reading or something on the screen that will occupy my time.

  2. Oooh yes, I know just what you mean.

    To not have to have an alarm or have our plans for the day on my mind as soon as I get up is wonderful. Enjoy your free weekends.

    1. Like the opposite of Christmas morning as a child! I've been wanting a good poke around an antique shop-not to buy. There may be time.

  3. At weekends I always seem to wake early; this morning it was 5.30am, so I'm catching up on a couple of TV programmes. J's feeling fit enough to go to Parkrun today, so I'm going to the library, then we'll meet up for breakfast.
    Have a good weekend!

    1. It's Saturday 5:30 here now and of course I woke up-no alarm needed. It is quite chilly out so today will be a soup and baking day.
