Fitting it All In...It's not Hard to Do...

I just wanted to share that I feel like I've had a productive weekend. It's the first one in many weeks.

I did have to work on Friday afternoon, and when I got home, we had a great dinner. My sleep pattern was messed up, so I ended up wide awake at one in the morning. Instead of lamenting in my insomnia (on the weekends I don't think it's insomnia, I'm just used to being up at those hours), I pounded out 718 words on my novel.

I was able to go back to sleep, and when I got up it was time for church practice. After church, we went for a walk which helped inspire yesterday and today's blog post. I watched three movies and took a nap and made dinner. I accomplished all of that and oI still feel rested and ready to start another work week in about sixteen hours.

I have been up since 3:30 am, but I have caught up on my Glee episodes I've missed and this blog post. My plan is to continue working on future blog posts until it's light enough to do some work on the patio outside.

Today's blog post is about making choices to fit in all the things you want to do. If I can do it, so can you...go for it!

What do you consider a productive weekend?  I'd love your comments!


  1. congrats on your productivity! :)

    and what do I consider a productive weekend? one where I spend timing writing (or editing), have taken some time for social networking, and have found time for hubby and relaxation. if I can incorporate all of this, then, I've made use of my weekend. (and so far, this one is great.)

  2. Productive weekend: Successfully getting novel moved into Word document, editing chapter one-again...writing Saturday morning blog, posting several Mother's day notes, watching movie with hubby, getting ready for kids and grandkids to visit! yay! (oh yes, grocery shopping)

  3. productive . .hmmm. i guess time to do all that leaves one feeling present & peaceful & sorta plugged in to life around me. SOooo i think i had one !!

  4. Sharon - it sounds like you were as productive as I was!

  5. I consider a productive weekend filled with family and writing that I don't delete on Monday!

  6. I consider a productive weekend one where I get everything done I need to and then actually have time to relax for a bit and soak up life : )

  7., too, far, that's working out this weekend as well...
