Lazy days are just what I needed

I had lots of plans for this long weekend. I actually took Friday off to give myself a four-day weekend.

I got many things checked off my to do list, but not as many items got checked off as I would have liked.

Since I get up at 5 during the week for work my sleeping in on the weekends is normally around 6:30. Which is what time I got up today.

I got up and made a white chocolate mocha drink, grabbed a Mexican pastry and plopped myself on the couch under a blanket. I watched some Christmas movies, … Continue reading
