I could get used to this.. Stay-cation without Pants.

Today is my third day of stay-cation and y'all.. I could get used to this. Besides the obvious perks such as not having to work.. here are a few other things I've been loving:

Sleeping in!! I normally wake up at 5:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and that is exhausting. 5:30 a.m is not a normal time to be awake and function in society. I know, I know. Some of you freaks love to get up at 4:30 a.m. and work out and solve world hunger. You probably also go to bed at 7 p.m. whereas I don't retreat to the bedroom until 11 p.m. most nights because I have trouble sleeping. So yeah.. 5:30 a.m. is cruel and unusual punishment.

Morning TV shows. Today Show. Good Morning America. Kelly and Michael. Ellen DeGeneres. The View. And today I just learned that Bravo TV plays Sex and the City re-runs all morning (!!!!)

Eating breakfast. Yes, even something as trivial as breakfast is exciting. I have not sat down with a bowl of cereal and watched the news since college. It is amazing.

Being a stay at home dog mom. Bailey goes to work with Paco normally but since I am home all week I am keeping her here with me and it's glorious. Serious girlfriend bonding time.

Not having to wear pants. I mean dress pants. Or work clothes. I've been in yoga pants and sweatshirts for the past 3 days and I don't hate it. But I am starting to feel like one of those people from wal-mart..

Relaxation. I cannot remember the last time I felt this relaxed. I have worked non-stop since graduating high school. I worked full time the summer before college and then during college I worked part time while maintaining a full course load. Even during winter and summer breaks I worked full-time. It wasn't until 2012 when Paco and I decided to take a vacation and drive to Colorado that I had a week off in YEARS (same for him, he never takes time off.) We took a week off in 2013 too to drive to Florida and while that was fun, driving 19 hours isn't the epitome of relaxation. So I am fully enjoying this stay-cation of doing nothing.

One thing that I am NOT loving is that the past two days when I was busy inhaling paint fumes it was unseasonably warm and sunny out. But today when I have no home improvement plans.. it's dreary and dark. Is it too early to start drinking? Asking for a friend..

  2. Seriously jealous that you get to watch Live with Kelly and Michael. It might be one of my fave shows... right behind Ellen. Luckily, I'm home in time to catch my girl though.

  4. This is great! Everyone deserves a stay-cation. My sleep schedule is so indifferent from most people... my sleeping in so off!

  5. I love this!! I agree with you about waking up that early…there is no doubt I love being up early, say 645-7, but I am also up at 11 at night too. And they really do play all the good talk shows during the day!!
