My conundrum is this - when I see that we have a weekend that has no real plans - do I make some? My inclination is to see what my friends are up to, is there stuff going on around town, is this our chance to go check out that cool park, see if we can squeeze in a date night or make a day trip to the beach or some other local attraction. Generally, I like to do. Especially right now, there is sooo much cool stuff happening in our area. But I know that having a weekend where we stay home and piddle around the house, cook meals and eat them together, go for walks around the block and generally do nothing has a lot of value as well. B would prefer more of the stay home and piddle weekends I'm sure, but he enjoys the stuff going on around town as well. So what do I do? How do I find some balance? If I don't stay home and piddle when I get the chance, those weekends will be long gone and I'll want them back. But when I see and hear about stuff going on that I want to do, it's hard to give it up to stay home and do 'nothing'. Isn't the 'nothing' unstructured time where some sweet family memories are made though?
Does anyone else struggle with this?
