Our weekend was most definitely one that could be classified as quiet and laid back. Friday night found me staying up far too late because George and I got caught up in a long “Criminal Minds” marathon which kept me up until 2 am (and yes, I realize how dangerous watching crime shows can be for someone like me but at least it keeps my neighborhood safe). It was fun and all because I can watch most episodes of that show over and over, but considering the fact that I ended up being dizzy all day on Saturday I wish I had gotten more sleep.
The good news was that my dizziness went away by supper time but the bad news was I didn’t do much better with getting to bed at a decent time on Saturday night either. I played a very competitive game of “Mouse Trap” with the kids, got them to bed, and then ended up watching “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” on BET with George. I wasn’t going to bother watching it at first because I thought I had missed the first half hour but when I realized it was just starting I sat down and it didn’t end until 1 am. It was worth it though, it was a great movie (although it co-starred Shemar Moore from “Criminal Minds” and I commented that it was weird to see him NOT kicking down doors or wielding a gun).
On Sunday I got a big urge to do some cleaning and purging, probably because I’m reading The Happiness Project. It’s a really interesting book and I’m trying to read it in small doses although part of me kind of wants to just sit and read it all at once. It details the author’s attempt to make her life even happier by following a variety of different mindsets, plans, and advice. One thing she worked on was decluttering and making her home less chaotic. Reading about it is kind of like watching Hoarders, it just sort of made me get a little itchy and I had to go clean something out. I ended up completely decluttering my bathroom. Why did we have so much crap stuffed in the cupboards above the washer and dryer? Sheesh.
I like when I get those urges. I could use more of them.
Other than that, the weekend was mostly quiet. It didn’t stand out as being a weekend really, other than the fact that no one needed to set an alarm clock or go to school.
On the other hand, sometimes a quiet weekend isn’t the worst thing in the world either.
