I went into last week burnt out.
So I took the week off. It was lovely.
Want to know what I did?
I held my baby. A lot.
I played with my kids. A lot.
I smoked a cigar with the Hubster under the stars. The conversation was stellar.
I took a couple naps.
I went shopping.
I had lunch with my dad.
I saw a movie. And had coffee with friends.
I painted my fingernails.
I read a few books.
It was a good week.
Next week we’ll dive into another underwear drawer. I’m not sure whose. Do you want a peek of the Good Guy’s secret stash of personal stuff, or the Bad Guy’s? Or maybe the Bad Girl? Vote below and let me know!
p.s. I’ve got a phobia of libraries. Find out why here.

Good for you, Myndi.
Sometimes you just have to draw a deep breath and collect yourself.
Your week sounds lovely. Now that you’ve done it, can I ‘borrow’ your week off. I think I’m in dire need of one of those. I seem to be doing it 1/2 way all the time. So not fully productive, but not fully rested and recharged, which not good on either side. 😦
I voted for ‘Good Guy’ because I bet there are some surprises in there. hee hee
That’s the worst! I hope you get some off time soon, sweet friend. Don’t be tough on yourself, okay? Loves you.
Yay for you!! Taking time off is always fabulous to the soul. I hope you enter this week refreshed, mind, body, and spirit. You probably a can guess my vote – bad guy! What interesting things lurk in his chonie drawer? A yo-yo? Old Spice bottles? A rose some girl gave him for prom? Boogers?
YOU SAID BOOGERS! (for whatever reason, this totally cracked me up)
your week sounds stellar. the perfect cure for burn out.
All good things you did last week, Myndi. My challenge to self is to put those restorative activities into every week.
Yeah, I fail. A lot.
Oh, gosh. Trying to implement stuff like that regularly is so frigging tough. Usually I wait until I’m LITERALLY losing my mind before I’m willing to slow down. Not a real great way to be. Work in progress, right? 🙂
Sometimes, we just need a week to regroup. Sounds like you did some really fun things. Love the cigar. Used to do that occasionally after a dinner with a bunch of lawyers. 😀
The cigar was ridunky. Ghurka Royal Challenge. Easy on the tongue with a satisfying dense smoke. 🙂 I don’t smoke very often, but when I do, it’s nice when it’s goo-ooo-ooo-d!
Good for you, taking some time off! It sounds wonderful that you got to pamper your family and yourself.
I’ve been feeling on the edge of burnout, so I took several naps this week too.
Oh, Angela, I’m glad you napped…and sorry that you’re nearing burnout. I hope the naps help! Hey, and PLEASE don’t hate me…but I just finally figured out where I downloaded your book to my computer. I’ll be reading it soon!!
Lol. Sometimes I lose things too. Sometimes I never find them again… Hope you enjoy it. 😀
Sounds like a wonderful week!
Myndi, you need to take care of yourself, girl! Your week sounded heavenly and you deserved every blissful moment of it. 🙂
Aw, thanks Shelia!!
Definitely good to re-charge those batteries. Sounds like it was a good week!
Myndi, take a week like that whenever you feel like it. You deserve it! When I think of all you have on your plate, I get burnt out! Don’t know how you do it, so do it with lots of days like the ones you describe here.
