It's Been A Lazy Weekend

So, it's Sunday and I know that's technically the "day of rest" for many people, but for me it's usually more of a "catch up on all of that stuff you're behind on" day. Today though? Not happening.

I've been up for almost an hour, and I'm sitting here with my coffee looking at various things on my to-do list and basically just having a "Nope. Don't wanna." reaction to every single one of them. 


I rarely take days for total slacking, but that's what I've done all weekend and I guess I totally lost momentum. So instead of actually doing things, I'll tell you guys about all of my recent awesome laziness!

*I watched Frozen and both Hobbit movies. I should probably buy stock in Redbox. (Speaking of which, did they change the free dvd codes? I tried all of the classics and none of them worked. I actually had to pay full price to rent a dvd for the first time ever!)

*I watched a LOT of soccer. I missed the totally crazy Netherlands Spain game, which I'm still sad about, but I've caught most of the others. I'm admittedly still bummed about England losing yesterday. 

Decided to go with a gif of one of the happy moments instead of all of the gifs I saw that made me cringe.

*I watched the above game with a super classy feast of taquitos from the gas station and a can of Angry Orchard. It was delicious, but I think I'm sticking with wine from here on out, because clearly cider is bad lucky. (I don't think there's any way taquitos can be unlucky. I mean, let's be logical here, people.)

Just acquiring my game food was a comedy of errors. I'd been out trying to squeeze in all of my errands before the game started, so I was in a giant hurry when I stopped to procure my supplies. The only fast food in my entire town is a Subway and I've never been keen on paying someone like $6 just to make me a freaking sandwich, but thankfully I have a deep fondness for questionable meat wrapped in a tortilla and left under glass by the gas station register for who knows how long. I grabbed the cider on a whim - I was actually checking to see if they had any super cheap wine, saw that and thought "Meh, why not." Of course, since I was in a hurry, I not only got carded (I'm thirty-freaking-two! But in fairness, I did have my hair in braids.) but my single can-o-cider rang up as $7.99, and the probably new cashier didn't believe me at first when I pointed out that was really, really wrong. Thankfully after a minute or so of me being all "I can just grab a Redd's instead, since they're clearly priced and I really DGAF..." her coworker yelled over "They're $1.89!" and she took fifty years to fix the price. But I made it home for kickoff, and all was right with the world.

Wow, that was a really long story set in a gas station. Sorry about that. Here's me with my cider, not looking under 21 by at least a decade.

This is my "Did I seriously just go through all that for something 5% alcohol by volume?" face.  Feel free to send me a pic of your "Did I seriously just spend all that time reading a story about buying stuff at a gas station?" face. 

*I made muffins and they were kind of amazing, but that's a whole other post for another day.

*I spent a lovely chunk of my Friday afternoon hanging out by the lake with a book. This was SO LONG OVERDUE! I've been waiting for a nice day to do this since like early May. 

I had an almost perfect spot where I could sit with my toes in the water and no other people around. I say *almost* perfect because any time a speedboat would go by (around every 5 minutes) it would make waves big enough that I'd have to quickly scoot back a few feet or end up with my towel and bag-o-stuff soaked. After I got my fill of solar power, I grabbed frozen yogurt from Orange Leaf and all was right with the world. 

And there you have my lazy weekend in a nutshell. Not super exciting, but exactly what I needed. And now I'm going to watch the second half of this awesome France/Honduras game! Happy Sunday, y'all!
