Link Love: January 10, 2010

This past weekend, I did something truly revolutionary: I didn’t do a damn bit of work. Instead, I spent a day cleaning the condo. I threw a party. I caught up with people I hadn’t seen in eons, due to my all-encompassing absorption with my work. I took down the Christmas decorations. I even enjoyed a leisurely lunch out with my husband. Tonight? My husband and I are meeting up with a group of friends to see Avatar at the IMAX theater. Work? What work? I’ve been completely unproductive. But it’s nice to feel a part of the world again.

Before I head out to the theater, here’s your weekly link love:


  1. On the contrary, I’d say that it sounds like you had a *very* productive weekend. Spending time catching up with friends, cleaning up your condo, and relaxing are all productive pursuits, because you’ll be able to start up again on Monday morning feeling refreshed and relaxed. You might even stumble upon a cool trend or topic for an article while you’ve stepped away from your laptop. Oh, and thanks for the link love!

  2. Thanks for the mention! I’m headed to check out most of the rest of these right now.

  3. Thanks much for the shout out here on my guest post for Nicole’s blog! We had some great discussion over there!

  4. Isn’t it amazing how reinvigorated you feel when you’ve totally turned your back on your work? I know that’s what weekends are for, but I always find myself using them to catch up on work. Just last weekend, I couldn’t do it- I so needed time off from work – and I indulged myself. I relaxed. Monday was so much easier – I was anxious to dig back in, instead of feeling like I needed a break.

  5. Oh. my. god. An embarrassing amount of time has passed since you all commented here. And I hope you know that your comments are much appreciated. 🙂 It does seem that saying yes to life more often (as corny as that sounds) and stepping away from the computer every once in awhile (so. hard.) did, indeed, refresh me. I feel as if I’ve been so insulated these past two years, and all this getting out is good to me. Hurrah for personal time!
