Weekend madness – not really

It’s been a busy week! Work, housekeeping, shopping, cooking, writing, taking care of kids, or just general madness when there aren’t enough hours in a day. It’s finally the weekend and we get a chance to relax.

But do we really? Today my husband and I went to Merrit, BC to visit one of our kids for his birthday. It was a long drive, and a long drive home, which I wouldn’t call relaxing, even though i didn’t do anything. We had a nice visit, though, which made the drive worth it.

Here’s a question for you. When you have a long period of forced inactivity, like a long car ride, what do you do, and what do you think about, to help you wind down?  (sleeping doesn’t count)

For me, today, it was nice not to have to think about anything, and now I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekend.
