I Know When to Go Out. And When to Stay In. Get Things Done.

Here is Stinky and Coadster in some crazy stage make-up after the play on Sunday.

Boy, a girl sure could get used to this life of leisure deal. It's so nice to have time to play AND get stuff done.

I kind of screwed myself today a little by having those two beers the night before. I had been a little migrainey over the weekend, and when I'm like that, I have to stay far away from alcohol. Of course, I thought I was in the clear but I was wrong. I woke up today with a bad migraine. I took my meds and in a couple of hours I was fine, but it felt like I wasted my morning.

Once I was better, I got some things done. I finally registered my car and did recycling and some other tedious tasks. Then I went on an hour long bike ride and that was lovely. I took today off of running, because I try to make myself take two days off a week. After my bike ride, I tackled the living room. I'm trying to do one room a day - top to bottom. It's so nice to see the room that clean. I'm trying to relish it, because I know it won't last long.

I can't believe tomorrow is Thursday already. Weeks go by so much faster when you don't have to work. Another friend of mine is also taking vacation time this week. Her parents are in town and so she invited me to go with her and her mom to the Riverside Casino. You can get a day pass and use their pool, sauna and jacuzzi. It sounds like a wonderful way to spend a morning. If it's as nice as they say it's supposed to be outside tomorrow, I might just run my 10 mile route when I get back. Tomorrow's chore is the bathroom, not my favorite, but again, it's always so nice to have it done. Now, I better get to bed so I can rest up for more leisure. Ahhhh.

It's a nice feeling to have that "leizure" time break even if the days do seem to fly by!

I'm glad you're enjoying your vacation! They do go fast when you're not working.

It takes extra effort for me to want to tackle the bathroom. But once it's done it shines and looks all purdy.

Rub our noses in it, why don't ya? ;P

Seriously though, it's nice to live vicariously through you and your relaxation. I feel better already.

And I can't help but mention that they word verification for this reply is "poopp". Ha!

The days fly, especially when you make the most of them, as you do.

Enjoy your casino day!

Too bad about your migraine, I hope the rest of the time off is great!

You try to take off two days a week, I try to take off seven. :-)

This is my favorite vicariousness so far. The vacation and spa bit. Although, I suspect the internet gods would like to warn me from getting too attached to the picture of relaxation, what with my word v. for the day: bedstab. Jeezus. Kinda violent, don't you think?
