Oh my gosh, today was a complete struggle... I did not want to be productive at work - on any level! I should have known the day was going to be like that when I woke up and every bone in my body ached. You'd have thought that I'd run a marathon last night or lifted the weight of the world on my shoulders... but I did nothing of the sort.

It's entirely possible that I slept wrong... I know that I spent a good portion of the night alone in the bed with a 20 pound dog - who somehow takes the entire bed... and I end up balancing my body on the smallest sliver of mattress imaginable. I don't exactly know how this happens because it certainly doesn't start out that way - and I don't even know that it has happened until it's too late... the pain and stiffness has already set in. Quite honestly, I don't even always know when she gets in the bed - she's super stealth like that.

John was off today - so naturally he took advantage of Thursday night football once our small group meeting was finished... so there is no telling what time he actually came to bed, but whenever it was - it didn't effect any change in the animal situation.

So, all pain and suffering aside - I procrastinated in a major way at the office, but found a couple of new blogs to read... so it wasn't a total loss of a day. I could have done some internet shopping to figure out what I want to put on my Christmas list - but there again - that would have been productive.

I am absolutely thrilled to have a weekend that is relatively unscheduled... I can't remember the last weekend like this - I think it might have been way back before Hurricane Ike came to town. The only really firm plans at this point are to make chicken spaghetti for some freezable meals as well as our small group meeting next week, and early voting tomorrow morning. Other than those two items - the next two days are an open book.

I've got potential plans with Renee to do some shopping, and there is a football game tomorrow night that we've got a couple of possibilities for time with friends... but other than that - nothing... Sunday is completely open after church is finished - and that is the most beautiful thing EVER! I'm going to take a nap or something really fun and relaxing!!

We'll see what comes along the way that I can write about for entertainment.


  1. Two blogs I love are Smitten Kitchen and You Grow Girl. Cooking and gardening at their finest with awesome photography.

  2. Hey, everybody needs some non-productive time every once in a while! :)

  3. I so want next weekend to be a non-productive one for me! I'm tired!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
