Future Kim might say yes

By , March 5, 2018 6:13 am

February wore me out, and I took this first weekend of March to recharge. I was at the point where any social invitation got a “no” from me. I couldn’t imagine being social one week out, or months in the future. I was too worn out. Present Day Kim says no. Please try again later with Future Kim. Ha.

I did have ONE social obligation this weekend – teaching fitness boxing! But that almost always energizes me. So yay for that!

Otherwise my weekend consisted of lots of alone time working out, a nap, reading (I finished Into the Wild), getting my nails done (in this color!), errands and dinner out with Steven, and hanging with Steven (going on a walk, watching the newer Battlestar Gallactica, the newer Flatliners, and part of The Oscars).

We had pizza out! Totally unplanned, but we could smell the restaurant when we were walking to Target, and when we saw they had vegan cheese, it seemed like a sign to check it out!


And I feel a bit recharged.

But I still feel like saying “no” to most invites. Ha! I need more time!

    This sounds like the perfect weekend! I definitely need periodic recharge weekends. I’m a huge fan of the newer Battlestar Gallactica. What did you think of it?

    • kilax says:

      It was!!! I can’t go too many weekends in a row of doing so much.

      We like it! This is my second time watching it all the way through, and Steven’s third. It’s funny – we are trying to remember who all the cylons are! I definitely like some episodes and characters better than others, but I think you’d have that with all shows.

    I don’t do as much as you, but I still get like that…I need to hunker down and just stay home. Glad you got recharged a bit…I’m sure future Kim will feel like socializing more eventually.

    LOVE that polish color! That might be a fun one for my toes one of these days (I only do pedicures).

    • kilax says:

      I can’t imagine not getting this way from time to time, however much stuff you do! I have friends who are out most weekends and nights and I am like HOW. WHY. Ha ha ha.

      Thanks! You should get it!!!

    Is there new Battlestar or just the new(old) series. It’d be amazing if they made some more. Guess where Boomer got his name from (even if its meant for a girl)!
    Glad you got some time to recharge. That pizza looks amazing.

    • kilax says:

      There is just the older series… from the 70s? And the new one we are watching. Aww! I never made that connection. Better than calling him Sharon 😉

    I like that nail color! I have a similar one that I can do mine in, now that I finally took last week’s ice blue off.

    Was that a new pizza place?? Or just new to you?

    • kilax says:

      Thanks! I felt spring-y! Are you gonna do yours in this blue, too?

      They opened in Novemember in Pleasant Prairie, but their Kenosha location has been open for 50 years! It’s called Valeo’s. Mine was actually really bland, but yay, vegan options!

  5. I spent some time this past weekend going through things I have coming up, and I’m already worried about how tapped out I’m going to be by June. Spring is SUCH a busy time for me in the weekend department, between the usual things (Easter, races) and a collection of things that have added to the busyness this year (graduations, weddings). I’m eagerly awaiting marathon season, when I have the most convenient, built-in excuse to say no to weekend activities (“Sorry, I can’t because I have to get up at 4:45 Saturday morning/I’m too tired from my long run/I need to catch up on everything I wasn’t able to do because of the long run.” I don’t pull that card all the time, but boy is it nice to have on hand when I do need it!)

    • kilax says:

      LOL! You need a new card for the spring! Or just say NO (which is what I tried with some things and was told I have to go).

      Are you penciling in some quiet time too so you aren’t completely drained come June?!

      • I think I’ll have one weekend in both April and May with nothing going on, so hopefully that’ll help. And I will likely continue my policy of avoiding social activities at all costs on weekdays, hahaha. But that’s mostly because my free time on weekdays is so limited as it is!

        And my past weekend was extremely uneventful, fortunately 🙂 Take that, first weekend in March!

        • kilax says:

          Yes! Keep those, you are going to need them! Being social on weekday nights – HOW do people do it? I remember the first time I did something social, on a weeknight, as a working adult, and survived, that I was astonished it was possible!

          YAY! Glad to hear it!

    Saying “no” and taking some recharge time is so important. I’m glad you got a little bit of down time (with pizza), especially since you always seem to be crazy busy in the spring months.

    Do you find that being busy most of the time makes you feel “guilty” (or weird) when you have scheduled off-time?

    • kilax says:

      Thanks, I am glad for it too!

      It doesn’t make me feel guilty, but it feels a bit odd after super busy times! Like, the change is rhythm is jarring. But I CANNOT keep up that GO GO GO rhythm! I am not wired that way!

  7. Amy says:

    Oh, I totally get you! I need regular quiet time without social obligations or I start to feel frazzled.

    How did you like Into the Wild?

    • kilax says:


      I liked it a lot! It made me curious about what I would have thought when the Outside Magazine article came out for the first time, had I read it! What did you think of it?

  8. Maggie says:

    Have you ever read up on introverts vs extroverts? I always assumed extrovert = friendly and outgoing and introvert = kept to yourself. But we did a whole “workshop” on personality types, and one thing I learned is that it’s more about where you get your energy. Extroverts get their energy from other people, whereas introverts, while they might like being around others, are drained by being around other people, and need alone time to recharge. While I totally relate to. Sounds like you do too.

    • kilax says:

      Yeah, I have read about all that, and actually had a paragraph at the end of this post about staying away from people I don’t feel energized from spending time with, but I took that out. Ha. So, yes, also an introvert in that regard (most of the time!).
