Last week I was feeling incredibly run down and as previously mentioned, I also happened to be so freaking busy at work that I didn't feel as if I had any time to actually get better. So I jokingly said I was having a contest this weekend to see how many hours I could sit on the couch.

Those of you who know me, know that I'm not really good at relaxing and chilling out. I am a master multi-tasker (which I'm not convinced is all it's cracked up to be actually). I can't sit still. I don't like to do nothing. I thrive on talking with people, being around people, doing somethiny- anything.

But I really and truly was feeling run down all last week and knew that in order to make it through the next few months, which'll continue to be very busy at work, that I needed to set aside some time to do nothing, to say no to everyone and everything, and to just chill the freak out.

I spent close to 30 hours on the couch since I stopped working on Friday. And it felt great.

I watched 36 episodes of Sex and the City yesterday alone. And then woke up this morning and watched another 25 today. If I didn't leave the apartment (for the first time all weekend) tonight to go to Sushi Roku for dinner, I probably would have made it all the way through the entire six seasons of SATC.

It was a wonderful wonderful weekend.

I took all of last week off from running. And while I felt a little bit like a slacker for doing so. I am ready to face the week and all its craziness and business with a renewed sense of energy and calmness.

Good for you in recognizing what you needed over the weekend. Sometimes you need a breather - in whatever form that takes. Recently I spent several hours watching a marathon of Hogan Knows Best re-runs. (I know.)

That sounds like a FANTASTIC weekend, good for you girl!
