i have a few carryover days that i need to use before the end of march, so i took last friday off. i woke up early and went for a run, and then thought i'd have a super productive day. i imagined a clean house, clean and folded laundry, freshly washed floors and dusted shelves. and then chris left for work and the kids left for school, and i thought to myself, "why don't you see what all this hype is about downton abbey and watch an episode on netflix?" after all, i did need to eat breakfast, so why not eat while watching one episode of downton abbey. well, breakfast turned into eating a half a bag of buffalo wing flavored pretzels and three cups of coffee, and one episode turned into three.
finally, after three riveting episodes, and a few emails to my sisters about how much i love mr. bates, i decided i needed to stop watching and start cleaning. so i took a shower, threw a load of laundry in, cleaned the kitchen and decided to run some errands. and then i realized that it was lunch time, so i needed to eat. so why not eat while watching one more episode? well, lunch turned into eating a whole package of macaroni and cheese straight out of the pan, and one episode turned into two.
and that is how i spent my friday off. sometimes you just have to allow yourself to be lazy, right?
