Once again, I have managed to fill my whole weekend with things to do. There isn't much time to just stay at home and relax. How do I end up doing this over and over again?
Yesterday was our company event that I had to leave early as we had some friends over to play board games. Today I'm driving a hundred kilometres to see a friend. And tomorrow there is an event where I'm one of the organisers. And on top of that, there might be a few hours of work I need to do still tomorrow.
So there are things I couldn't have affected in any way (the company event), things that were scheduled a long time ago, things that were agreed just recently and a thing that came up spontaneously. They just happen to be all in the same weekend.
Sure I could cancel some of those. The one's that would mostly effect me and a few other people. Go see the friend some other weekend. But then it might be half a year from now. It's just so hard to find a time suitable for both of us its better stick to those rare dates that we have managed to arrange.
After all, if I would schedule something for another weekend I'm sure there would be as many things happening on that weekend as well. And cramming everything in one weekend might free up some other weekends when I have absolutely nothing to do but chill and relax.
