I LOVE my days off!

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

I really look forward to my days off.   Probably because when I am working, I am at work for about 13 hours (arrive at 6:30 pm and usually leave at 7:30 am, but sometimes, unfortunately later).  But that doesn’t take into account my getting ready time.  If I’ve worked the night before, I’ll get up from sleeping at 4:30 pm, take a shower, then eat by about 5:10 pm while watching either HGTV or a Reba episode (or whatever we are currently watching on DVD), then brush my teeth and get dressed, and then out the door by 6:10 pm.  I have it down to a science.  So there is MINIMAL time on the days I’m working to do anything relaxing or fun.

Therefore, when I have my days off, I like to enjoy them to the max.  Usually this means sleeping in, having some coffee and catching up on my blogs, reading, trying new recipes, doing the dishes and laundry (most of the time I don’t mind doing the dishes or laundry…I like to see things getting clean!), watching TV or a movie, grocery shopping, and just hanging out with Kimm.

The past two days have been nice.  Last night we finally watched Marley and Me.  Good movie.  Extremely sad at the end (we knew it would be, but it still doesn’t fully prepare you…we both looked like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer before going to bed!).  Watch the preview here.

Today I made some chili (the whole house smelled divine…I will post the recipe soon, it’s that good!) and then we went to Barnes and Noble to check out the books…one of our most favorite activities 🙂

A nap may have also been in the picture.

I still have half a day tomorrow to enjoy before working two nights.  The good thing is that after that I will have three nights off, then one on, then another three off!  Pretty sweet!  I have a lot I want to accomplish on my next stretch of days off so I think I will need to make a LIST!
