The No-Labor Weekend

This holiday weekend, we did a bunch of nothing and it was as fabulous as I thought it would be.  Pretty much since before Christmas last year, we have had a laundry list of to-dos every weekend.  First it was prepping for our Disney vacation, then prepping for Darren to move to Austin, then prepping to get the Houston house on the market, then prepping for the family to move to Austin, then prepping for our summer road trip, then unpacking the Austin house, then prepping for a quick trip to LA, and then prepping for school to start. 

This weekend-- we were moved in, no trips on the horizon, and school is in session-- life is 'back to normal' (whatever that means).  I even enjoyed the banter ("what do you want to do?" "I don't know. What do you want to do") that Darren and I often partake when we don't have a huge list of to-dos with an unstructured weekend on our hands.    

We had neighbors over for dinner.  We played with technology.  We shopped for Halloween costumes. We watched a movie.  We ate out.  We just did a bunch of nothing.  Totally delightful!
