This morning while I was trying to roll out some sore spots in my quads at the end of my workout (my legs were dragging this morning) I was thinking back over the weekend and how great it was. I didn't have many commitments and for the most part, ended up just letting it flow as it came - aside from my regular date with the gym.
Typically I like to have everything planned out, at least a couple days in advance. I like to know my schedule so I can make plans and know what to expect. For the most part, I don't see anything wrong with that, I think it is a pretty good way to be, actually. This past weekend started out no different. Saturday after the gym I had everything planned so I could meet up with a friend around 2pm for a walk in the park. Not long before we were to meet the plans changed and were pushed back a couple hours. Instead of worrying how it would change my day and the fact that I missed out on a trip to the farmers market with Woody, I picked up my book and headed outside to read while I waited for her call. The rest of the day was perfect. I had such a great time walking through Central Park, catching up with a good friend and enjoying the great weather. I really can't complain about any part of the weekend. It was pretty great.
Well, until I had trouble falling asleep last night, but that was my own fault. I spent the last half hour or so flipping through travel brochures planning our upcoming vacation in northern Michigan. I love going up there so I'm sure over the next few weeks my mind will drift quite a few times, thinking about all the great things we can do. Or, not do! We'll have a basic plan for the week, but leave room for roaming and getting side tracked. That's one of the best parts about vacations, right? Maybe we should leave a little room during our 'normal' life to be side tracked. Never know what might happen!
How was your weekend? Do you like planning things out or taking life as it comes?
