Enjoying a needed time out

Have you noticed things have been quiet around here? Well not in terms of posting information but more in terms of posting personal stories and thoughts. Yup that's right I was on a min break from writing personal posts. Or rather I should say from posting personal posts. I always have personal posts written in my head. LOL

So what have we been up during our min break? As little as possible. Really.

After a few weeks filled with "stuff" that has kept us busy and semi stressed, everything accumulated all at once with my 4th years mom blogger anniversary, Mother's Day, Father's Day, my son's preschool graduation and birthday in the same week plus other personal "stuff".

It was all enough for me to feel we needed a time out from it all. While I would love to jet away somewhere, my budget and the calendar has us staying close at home for a bit this summer. But being at home doesn't mean not being able to relax. So I made sure we relaxed.

We slept late and long during the day.

We spent a day at the movies. Literally. We saw Monsters University in the morning. Took a lunch break. And then went back to see Despicable Me 2.

We visited with friends and family and just enjoyed their company. We ate full plates of home cooked meals. We watched movies for most of the day or caught up on TV series we missed.

We literally just took time out for ourselves and did whatever we wanted to do. It felt great!

When was the last time you took a time out?
