Confession: Once upon a time, before I had a nine-to-five job, I was extremely lazy. I never exactly called it that, but my weekends were mostly spent watching entire seasons of shows on DVD, watching chickflicks, sleeping in and then staying in bed to read until 4pm, staying up late to write long-winded emails to friends and family, and well.. ya, I think that’s enough of a demonstration. Oh and sometimes I only left my house to walk to Shoppers for chocolate. Sometimes still in my reindeer pjs. Ok, NOW that’s enough.
Anyways, since moving to Toronto, this really, almost never, ever, happens anymore. My family is in another city, Jay’s family is in another city, some of my closest friends live in other cities, I work Monday to Friday, spend what feels like 1/4 of my time on public transportation, and have an apartment I am slightly neurotic about keeping clean, so no, laziness is a little less frequent. Though, I will admit that after dinner most nights, I am a couch potato, but that is one or two hours, compared to the days it used to be.
Regardless of lesser time spent doing nothing, I quite love being busy. It’s not like I am busy doing unpleasant things! I love my job, I take sincere pride in my apartment, I adore visiting friends and family, so ya, life is good! But, every once in a while, I miss the lazy days. So this morning, I had one!
8:00am – Wake up to Jay’s alarm (sometimes he works Saturdays). Instead of going back to bed, I decided to get up-and-at-’em. I read a few chapters of Jenny Han’s new book BURN FOR BURN.
9:00am – While perusing my closet for what to wear this afternoon when I meet up with some friends, I realized that I literally had no pants left. So, laundry time!
10:00am – One load of laundry down, 2 to go, I decided it was completely necessary to stay in my pjs and try and fix my blog header (which has been my goal for a very long time).
10:30am – Take break to read more.
11:00am – Yes! It looks .. better! While I’m in a bloggish mood, time to browse my favourite blogs!
12:00pm – Time for breakfast! A sandwich and a coffee! And some more reading.. Felt the need to include a picture of the coffee. It’s Vanilla Biscotti!
12:10pm – Time to catch up on the 20 episodes I have fallen behind on in The Lizzie Bennet Diaries! Have you seen it? You should totally check it out! Click below.
12:45pm – Fold three loads of laundry. Listen to this song on repeat:
1:00pm – Blog!
1:20pm (in future) – After being up for 5 hours, perhaps should shower. And head out! Friends are awaiting!
Bottom line, this post was a bit pointless except for this small statement: being lazy sometimes, is awesome.
