Did you have a relaxing weekend? I did! I did absolutely nothing. Actually that’s not true, I took a bubble bath at 2:00 in the afternoon on Saturday, and I did leave the house to eat sushi with some friends Saturday night, but then I came home and sat on the couch. I really really needed a lazy weekend. I realized when I was lounging in bed all morning (both mornings) that I haven’t done that since we bought our new comfy mattress over a year ago. What’s the point of having a nice mattress if you don’t enjoy it? Of course my house is still dirty, my Christmas decorations are still up, and I skipped both the gym and church, but I feel so much better. Worth it.
We almost went to see Black Swan on Sunday, but I HATE HATE HATE ballet movies. As a former ballet dancer (a serious one for 15 years, not as much for the next 6, and not at all now…boo!) I simply cannot stand them. So, even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE movies and like to see as many Oscar contenders as possible ballet movies bum me out and the bad dancing always distracts me, so I think I’m going to pass on this one. For now at least.
So back to weekends. I have a BIG problem. I love weekends. I love the relief of Friday evenings, the gym/breakfast/SpongeBob/cleaning routine of Saturday, seeing friends Saturday night, church Sunday morning followed by a nap…you get the idea. Anyway, so many of the jobs that I would like to do would require weekend hours. All of my friends are lawyers and accountants. I want to be off when they’re off. I think I’m going to have to budge on either the weekend or the job expectations. Maybe if I found a job that I loved I wouldn’t care? I need to think about this. Anyone out there know what my priorities are? I’m starting to worry that I’m not going to like them.
Anyway, I hope you had the BEST weekend, and I hope this is the BEST week!
