Every summer during my vacation, I tell myself that I will recharge... exercise more, get some work done at home, etc., etc. I'm just setting myself up for disappointment, you know.
Typical La Grump vacation scenario:
8:00am-- I'm still in bed. I'll THINK about getting up for a walk before it gets too hot outside to breathe. Yeah... but I'm SOOOO tired. I'll just sleep a little longer.
10:00am-- *yawn* Wow, I slept longer than I thought I was going to. I should really get up now. *strolls into kitchen for a bowl of Kashi cereal* Wow. Look at that sun outside. *opens sliding glass door to backyard-- wave of heat nearly knocks me over* Yikes. Guess I won't be going for that walk now.
12:00pm-- *still in jammies* Maybe I should think about showering and getting dressed. Nah.
1:00pm-- *finds an absolutely fabulous movie on cable* Hey! I love this movie! I've seen it so many times, that I can quote it verbatim, but I MUST watch this. So, I'll fold some towels or something as I watch the movie.
3:00pm-- Hey! This next movie that's on RIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE is also amazing. I haven't seen it since... last week, I think! Must. Watch. Again.
5:30pm-- Yipe... I'd better think about making some dinner.
6:00pm-- Maybe we should just go out to eat. But... oops. I have to shower first.
6:30pm--*steps out of shower, all clean and great smelling*
7:15pm-- I'm clean, my hair is done, my makeup is perfect... let's go get dinner.
9:00pm-- *family returns home* Ooh.. I forgot to blog today. Better get to that!
10:30pm-- Well, it IS a weeknight. And I don't want to fall out of that work pattern of going to bed early. Maybe I should hit the hay.
10:45pm-- *finds another absolutely fabulous movie* Cool! I love this flick!
1:00am--*wide awake... can't sleep* Infomercials suck. What else is on?
2:30am--*yawn* Maybe I should go to sleep now.
... and then the whole thing repeats over again. Okay, well maybe not every day... but definitely more times than I even care to think about. Meh.
