My Weekend Plans (Exhausted Version)

The weekend is almost here, I can almost see it, crawling towards me. Argh, I have Saturday working but I am planning to take half the day off since I am EXHAUSTED. I want to do so many things but I also just want to chill and do nothing. It is such a conundrum.

Things I want to do –

  1. Catch up on all the blogs I have missed reading in the past 10 days – please leave links to your blogs that I haven’t caught up on – I am going to read them all this weekend.
  2. Get my phone repaired – yes, that same phone that I broke over a month back. I just haven’t had the time or energy to get it repaired. I went once a month back but the service center quoted almost the phone’s cost as repair cost for the phone – and yeah, I wasn’t going to do that. So I’ve found someone else to repair it for half that cost, I just have to get myself to go there.
  3. Go cycling – It is monsoons in Delhi and all I want to do is cycle around some historical buildings and parks. And maybe have a picnic after? :’)
  4. Sleep – I am tired. My brand launched new products last week and I have been buried under work. There are more things being launched next week and I have so much work to do on that. (but YAYAY, I finally hired an intern to help me. :D)
  5. Drink – (Kids, move on from this point) I just want to spend Saturday night in my bed with a bottle of red wine, Chinese food – watching trashy movies.
  6. Meet a friend – I haven’t met any friends in a few weeks – I’d love to spend some time with a friend catching up, maybe go shopping or go to my favourite cafe for coffee and cheesecake.
  7. Take my mum out somewhere – I would love to take my mum somewhere, she is WFH and is cooped up at home while my dad and I head to office – so I’d love to take her out somewhere.
  8. Photoshoot for new products – The crazy task of getting photos of all the new products. Thankfully my brothers are great for this work. One is a professional designer and has photoshoot experience and the other is cute so I use him as a model. Haha!
  9. Read – I haven’t finished a single book in the last month – I am currently half way through a book – hoping to finish it in the next 2-3 days.
  10. Bake – I haven’t baked in a few weeks either, I want to bake some fun oatmeal cookies this weekend.
  11. Write – I want to sit down and write all my posts for the next 2 weeks.
  12. Click my own photos – I haven’t gotten photos clicked in SO long, I just want to get a few nice photos (for the gram πŸ˜› )

What do you think I should prioritize and do this weekend? How do I spend the 1.5 days of free time that I am going to get? Also, for pt.1, leave your blog links in the comments below. ❀

  2. Gorgeous post!! Honestly can you please teach me how you make such awesome posts? πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ your drinking plan, reading plan and baking plan sound absolutely gorgeous. Having some wine with chinese food in bed is too perfect but there is an alcohol ban in SA so can’t buy anything… what are you planning to bake this weekend? I’m hoping to try out some macaron recipes. Amazing post and lots of love ❀️❀️❀️

      An alcohol ban? Because of what happened? Have things gone back to normal?
      Woah – macaron! Fancy – the recipes I’ve seen though easy still seem too tricky. Can’t wait to see how yours turn out! πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much! ❀

      1. Yeah! It’s because of covid actually because alcohol-related trauma cases can be quite high here and we needed the hospital beds for covid patients so alcohol sales were banned to try and keep those casualty numbers down and hopefully the ban will lift tomorrow but not sure. I love macarons and I know they seem technical but really they aren’t too hard πŸ™ˆπŸ˜ lots of love and I hope your weekend went well ❀️❀️

    I think you live on WordPress. I saw some of your other posts on the reader earlier today and you’re making me look bad πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ I haven’t posted anything during the month of July. How do you do so many things? I can barely muster up enough energy to get off of the couch these days πŸ˜…

      Haha, I discovered blogging last year and fell in love with this world. Now despite my crazy schedule I force myself to take out time to keep up with writing. It is 1:40AM and I am trying to reply to all the comments that I haven’t gotten to in the past week, and I have early morning breakfast plans. I guess I am in this mode where I am enjoying the hustle! πŸ™‚

  6. I’m glad that you have already got your weekend planned down to the minute. I hope you’ll be able to do it all. I hope you’ll be able to get your phone repaired too. I’ve been publishing one post everyday. You might have missed a few but don’t worry, catch up if and when you get the time and feel like reading. I finished reading the second part to P.S I love you. It was heartbreaking and beautiful. I hope you’ll be able to finish your current read. Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

      OMG, really? I heard about the part 2 but just didn’t have the heart to read it because I didn’t want a bad part 2 to ruin the first one for me. But I am definitely adding that to my TBR pile.
      Definitely going to catch up on all your posts this weekend! One post every day – that is amazing! How are you doing that? Kudos!!! You are an inspiration!

      1. It’s called Postscript and I thought it was a brilliant conclusion. Very cathartic. Thanks a lot, Moksha. I set aside time for blogging. Most of my posts are less than 300 words and thanks to prompts, I always have something or the other to write about. Thank you so much πŸ˜ƒ
        It’s all a juggling act
