Weekend Update – Changing Things Up

Since I’m no longer training for anything specific, I figure that Manic Monday training recaps aren’t really relevant. This is especially true considering that last week the only workout I did was one 5k run. I was pretty freaking sedentary. Because I felt like it. And that’s A-OK.

With that in mind, I will likely return to posting a “Weekend Update” on Mondays instead. I enjoyed writing these little posts this spring while I was busy with 9 to 5 and not running much.

It will be safe for you to assume that I’m trying to hit CF 2-3 times a week, and probably not running very much. This time of year I always fall into a much more sedentary lifestyle. After a busy spring and summer of rehearsals, shows, and half marathon training, I’m ready to take a big old step back and just relax. With that said, here’s Weekend Update!

I skipped CrossFit and ran a couple of errands before going home. Ben had a broom ball game, but I was able to hang out with him a bit before he left. I had supper with my in-laws and then had a quiet evening watching Lost on Netflix and knitting.

We were up relatively early to go look at another house. This was by far the best house we’ve seen, but not so great that we were ready to make moves. It’s already got two offers in, and needs a few significant (and costly) repairs, so we’re taking a “wait and see” approach. If the seller accepts one of the pending offers, no worries. If both offers expire, we might be ready to take next steps.

After that, I spend the rest of the morning getting caught up on laundry and cleaning/organizing around the house. Despite my best intentions, most cleaning stuff just gets pushed off onto the weekends.

I wrapped up my productivity around 1 pm and spent the rest of the day just binge-watching Lost and knitting. I have been a knitting MACHINE lately. It’s very relaxing to do while watching TV.

We had supper with my in-laws and hung out for a a few hours. While I went to bed at the responsible (and boring) hour of 10, Ben and his folks stayed up late, listening to music and talking.

Sunday morning was MUCH more leisurely. We all had a nice sleep-in until the dogs starting whining around 9:30. My father in law made us heavenly omelets and biscuits from scratch. I inhaled my omelet before I could snap a photo, but here’s a biscuit shot:


It was a gray, rainy morning, so I just loafed around for a while, trying to decide what to do with my day. It cleared up around noon and Ben left to go play Frisbee golf with friends, and I headed into Williston to buy more knitting supplies with some AC Moore coupons.

After a quick trip, I was home and once again knitting and Netflix-ing. For a while I felt guilty about not doing something more active or productive, but ultimately decided that I’m overdue on rest and relaxation so I just went with it.

When Ben got back from Frolf, we headed over to Cambridge for a quick visit with our friends Nick and Nikki. They’re our friends who evacuated from St. John after Hurricane Irma. While the circumstances suck, it’s been really nice having them so close again. We sat on Nick’s mom’s deck and chatted and had some snacks until their supper was ready, and we went home for our own supper, then more Netflix and bedtime.


The view from the deck

All in all, it was a super lazy weekend, and I’m pretty happy about it. We’re traveling the next two weekends in a row, so it was great to just be home and relax.

Anybody else have a lazy weekend like me?

    Hey, the way I see it, we work HARD during the week and we earn the right to have a weekend doing whatever the hell we damn well please (with regards to activity/nonactivity. Not so much if you want to do illegal things). Your knitting is my napping.
