Today is my third day of stay-cation and y’all.. I could get used to this. Besides the obvious perks such as not having to work.. here are a few other things I’ve been loving:
Sleeping in!! I normally wake up at 5:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and that is exhausting. 5:30 a.m is not a normal time to be awake and function in society. I know, I know. Some of you freaks love to get up at 4:30 a.m. and work out and solve world hunger. You probably also go to bed at 7 p.m. whereas I don’t retreat to the bedroom until 11 p.m. most nights because I have trouble sleeping. So yeah.. 5:30 a.m. is cruel and unusual punishment.
Morning TV shows. Today Show. Good Morning America. Kelly and Michael. Ellen DeGeneres. The View. And today I just learned that Bravo TV plays Sex and the City re-runs all morning (!!!!)
Eating breakfast. Yes, even something as trivial as breakfast is exciting. I have not sat down with a bowl of cereal and watched the news since college. It is amazing.
Being a stay at home dog mom. Bailey goes to work with Paco normally but since I am home all week I am keeping her here with me and it’s glorious. Serious girlfriend bonding time.
Not having to wear pants. I mean dress pants. Or work clothes. I’ve been in yoga pants and sweatshirts for the past 3 days and I don’t hate it. But I am starting to feel like one of those people from wal-mart..
Relaxation. I cannot remember the last time I felt this relaxed. I have worked non-stop since graduating high school. I worked full time the summer before college and then during college I worked part time while maintaining a full course load. Even during winter and summer breaks I worked full-time. It wasn’t until 2012 when Paco and I decided to take a vacation and drive to Colorado that I had a week off in YEARS (same for him, he never takes time off.) We took a week off in 2013 too to drive to Florida and while that was fun, driving 19 hours isn’t the epitome of relaxation. So I am fully enjoying this stay-cation of doing nothing.
One thing that I am NOT loving is that the past two days when I was busy inhaling paint fumes it was unseasonably warm and sunny out. But today when I have no home improvement plans.. it’s dreary and dark. Is it too early to start drinking? Asking for a friend..
