Is this what a relaxed weekend looks like?

I have a question for you guys. Is it "normal" to go, go, go, with nary a break in between? The past four months have been that way with me. My answer to, "Can we get together this weekend?" has been, "No, I'm sorry. But we can get together in FOUR weekends!" (and if you get back to me next week, then it will probably be six weekends, sorry!). This weekend is the first weekend where we have NOTHING planned, and Justinb's games were cancelled because of the weather so we literally have nothing planned. Is it unusual in most of your lives to have a weekend where nothing is planned back-to-back, or at all? Or is that the norm?

I'm breathing a sigh of relief this weekend that I don't have anything planned, but on the other hand I'm looking forward to my big plans coming up on the weekends! I also know this coming week I'll probably give myself a hard time for not getting out more THIS weekend. There is a dragon boat festival we could attend! However, I've also given this weekend to Brando for his birthday weekend to do what he wants with even if it is nothing ; ) so that's up to him whether we go or not.

It kinda depends. I like having both. Looking ahead, I have plans for my weekends pretty far out - until June. I was so glad to have nothing this weekend, so I could make it what I wanted as I went along. I think it's important to relax and just do nothing sometimes. It's the only way to really recover! Plus I think chill time with the people you love can also be a good opportunity to make memories. I remember popcorn and a movie every Sunday growing up. :) It seems to be more common that I stay in at least one night a weekend these days. A couple years ago it would've driven me nuts, but now I love it that way!
