So yesterday was just a really nice afternoon and evening. Once I got home from work for the day, you know what I did? I actually, finally got a chance to do a little…
I stepped away from the computer (for the most part), closed out my Facebook and Twitter tabs, and left my Google Reader unread. Instead, I took a bath, even if it was short lived (<—I never EVER take baths and was quickly reminded why…our drain doesn’t seal very well and for some reason, I ran out of hot water rather quickly. Ahh well, at least I got 15 minutes out of it).
I spent some time catching up with my book, which is starting to pick up (Beth is finally starting to relax around “Mr. Thibault!”)
And yes, I use my Old Navy “stuff and save” coupon as a bookmark as my daily reminder not to forget about the sale.
I enjoyed a glass of wine while reading, made some dinner a couple hours later, took the day off from working out, and even had a little dish of ice cream for dessert while watching Modern Family. It was a good night, and it was nice to somewhat unplug (I say somewhat because my phone was still right next to me…I’m not *that* good).
I think that’s something we definitely all need to try and do now and then…
Don’t you think?
I have a couple of morning clients to go in to work for this morning, so I wanted to make sure I had time to eat some breakfast (and blog about it, of course) before I left. Jay always thinks I’m crazy to get up so much earlier than I “actually have to” for work (or anything, for that matter), but I just love having that time to relax.
Besides, breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day…why would I want to rush through that, right?
Nothing fancy today, as you can tell – it was a “paper towel as my plate” kinda morning (<—which is probably what I’d do most mornings if I weren’t blogging about it) – just my coffee and a whole wheat English muffin topped with some honey peanut butter, banana slices and chia seeds.
There may have also been a tiny sliver of this stuff tossed in with breakfast, but that’s neither here nor there.
Time to head off and kick some boo-tay for the morning!
Question for the Morning:
How much time do you give yourself to eat breakfast? Do you sit and relax or eat and go (or eat while on the go)?
