Weekend Off


Well, this weekend was my first successful weekend at NOT blogging. And I have to admit, it was kind of nice.

There were a few times in which I was wonder what was up in blog land. And I did still check in on Twitter, which I typically have open if my computer is on. But I didn't go to Google Reader at all and I also didn't open my blog up.

Work this weekend was actually pretty okay. We were relatively slow (as far as weekend mornings go) because it's spring break this coming week at both the university in town and the elementary and secondary school.

I will say that silly daylight savings didn't make for good sleeping. I kept waking up throughout the night, worrying that for some reason I wouldn't wake up at the right time or something. I honestly think I woke up once an hour. Not fun.

This post is a bit boring but... what can I say? It was just one of those weekends. LUCKILY, I have fun things coming up this week, so stay tuned!

P.S. I'll be doing the Minnesota AIDS Walk in May with the Minnesota/Wisconsin Bloggers Team! Please donate to a very good cause here. All donations are tax deductible.

Congrats on your first weekend off :) Now I'm waiting for the weekend when you won't even open twitter :)


I don't think it's realistic (or even expected) to not let yourself even open reader and/or blogger. If you want to open and read blogs, you can. I feel like you're being too strict with yourself. That being said, if it worked, then roll with it!

Glad you had an alright weekend!

lo @ crazy ever after

Good plug on the AIDS walk. I mentioned it to some friends and am hoping to collect some moola soon. Daylights Savings completely f'd with my head last night. Super tired today.


I hate spring forward! Glad to hear that your new blogging schedule is feeling right!

I'm proud of you for taking some time off! We all need it. (And it makes us miss you more.)


Glad you enjoyed having your weekend off the blogging! I really needed one too this weekend, ended up getting myself so down about it on Friday night and I have no idea why!

Wow, that's awesome that you were able to stay away all weekend! I often feel guilty for not blogging/vising blogs on weekends since that's my time to catch up. I'm glad it worked for you though! I think we all need to "unplug" a bit once in awhile.


Good job with the blogging hiatus! Have an amazing week ahead x

good for you for sticking to taking weekends off.

It's so hard to just relax during the weekends, isn't it? And DST? Urgh. Threw me off big time.


Looks like that hour screwed everyone up! lol Even traffic was slow today. It's like, that hour put everyone on sail pace. :)


Glad you were able to enjoy your weekend sans blogging! Especially after losing an hour of sleep. :)


Daylight savings messed me up too. Why must we change our time anyway?


Ugh, I hate waking up all the time in fear of missing something!

Erin {pughs' news}

Good for you for taking the weekends off!

Have a great week, Krysten!


I hear you about not sleeping well. I'm really hoping for a good night's rest tonight. I need it!


we had great weather here too - it was almost 20C and sunny! i didn't hop on my reader and when i checked this morning, it blew up to over 500 unread feeds :(


Hope you had a good first weekend away from blogging. I actually want to try that. I often don't post on the weekend but I've never gone as far as not checking my blog all weekend. Have a good week.


It's REALLY nice having weekends off. Makes a huge difference!

Mrs. Pancakes

glad you enjoyed your weekend off!!

Jessi Haish

yay for taking time off and not being slammed at work!


oh my goodness, daylight savings threw me off as well. I can't believe what impact just an hour has - I've been ready for bed since 10 am! haha :)


good that your weekend off blogging went well! :) x


Weekends off from blogging are good for the soul. I never post on weekends anymore but I do check in with others and also tumble but the weekends that I have to remove myself from it completely because I'm not in front of a computer are the best. I do get anxious about it but then I let it all go. :) xoxo


Taking time off from blogging is always nice! Glad you enjoyed it. :D

I think it's always nice to take a break!!

Laura in Cancun

I never even think about the blog on weekends! Glad you got to relax a little


I'm glad you enjoyed a bit of a break this weekend... you deserve it!

I'm still screwed up with the daylight savings time. Is that even possible, or am I just very lazy?
