Another week over

This week has been very busy at work and I have been struggling a little bit with my sleep. This is not the best combination, but hopefully things will stabilize and my sleep will sort it self out. The first is a luttle unlikely, but the second usually do. I did manage to pay my mother a visit and to go see a friend of mine one evening, but apart from that and band I have not been up to much after work.

While I described last weekend as busy, but good this weekend has mostly been a lazy one. Friday I was so tired coming home from work that after a little walk outside and some shoe shopping I just spent the rest of the evening on the couch watching Netflix. After such a lazy evening I went to bed early.

The going to bed early was a good thing as my habit of waking up early in the morning is not just present during the weekdays. So I had a nice quiet morning drinking coffee, reading blog posts and doing some work on my own blog for later. Friday came with so much snow that they had to close the runway at the airport for a few hours, but Saturday morning most of it was gone here in the center of town. I ran a few errands and then took to the sofa again, to watch some skiing and relax. I also made sure I got a good walk in seeing as the weather was sunny and the snow looked nice. The evening was yet again spent on the sofa with my man, Netflix, sushi and a beer or two.

Today is going to be spent on blogs, watching skiing on TV, hanging out with my friend and her little baby and going for a walk. To me this is a perfect weekend to balance the hectic week I had. I feel like, so far, I am keeping up with the goals I set for the year. Yes, I could always have done more or better, but I believe that by changing things slowly it’s easier to keep things up.

I hope the weather stays nice for the next week so that walking outside will be as good as this week. I don’t see things calming down at work for the week to come, but I am managing. I have caught up on some sleep this weekend and feel like I have the energy I need to meet a new week in the best possible way. The week will also bring with it the release concert for my friends new album, and I am very much looking forward to that.

Hope the week and weekend has been treating you well and that you are all doing your best to keep up with the goals for 2018. Unless you have found out that they didn’t work for you.

  1. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Maja and I hope that the coming week is not to hectic for you. I met a friend on Friday for a few drinks and an Indian meal which was very pleasant and I’m planning a lazy Sunday. All the best, Kevin

    I think you deserve that lazy weekend, Maja. Sometimes work can get tiring. I also had a lazy weekend – looking at the computer and watching YouTube. This morning I woke up, went out for lunch, came home and lied down on the bed again for a few hours and then got up to make food for dinner, just so tired 🙂 Have a good week 🙂

  3. Busy weekend here. House full of visiting family.

  4. January and February are natural hibernation months so none of us have a lot of energy. We just ride it out until the sun makes a longer appearance each day. Poor sleep is a persistent issue for me so I empathize. No luck getting your place sold yet, I gather? Maybe in the spring it will change. Enjoy your time on the couch for now. it’s good to give the body some rest. Have a great week ahead.

    Thanks for sharing…after a trip over the holidays I found myself waking up every night at 1:30a…then 3:30a…turns out you can get some great blog writing done at that time, but it makes mid-day a bit of a drag, doesn’t it?

      It sure does. I’m not one of those people who can function almost as good on little sleep. But I got a fair bit this weekend, so maybe that will sort things out.

  6. That iron man has some wide hips. I think they put the wrong head on her! I fell in love this weekend–beat that!
