Weekend time management

I find myself being extremely frustrated this weekend because of a lack of time management. One might say, "Weekend: ur doin it woung!!11!," because weekends are for chilling out. I would mostly agree, except to say that part of what I do to chill out is work on stuff for my various projects. Whether or not it's good for me to make my part-time business something I use my free time for is probably debatable, but not something I want to consider right now.

Last weekend was damn near perfect. We got out twice for meals, I wrote a ton of code for the forum app, I got plenty of one-on-one time with Simon, and it felt like I was getting so much out of every waking moment. This weekend, so far, not so much. Part of it is that I need uninterrupted stretches of time for the working part, and with Simon being needy and teething on and off, that just isn't happening, unfortunately.

Something I will have more of is time the next couple of weekends, as we'll have back-to-back four-day weekends. There are social and family events in there, but still lots of free time. I don't want to manage how to relax, because that seems neurotic, but I do want to make the most of the time leading up to our vacation so I can truly blow off everything not leisure related!
