After waking without the assistance of an alarm at a super late 7:15 am, I lay in bed listening to the smooth sounds of the morning news. Nothing motivates me to get out of bed faster than the fake upbeat voices of the morning broadcasters trying to convince you that they are different from all the other news stations, while spoon feeding you the same news that’s being broadcast across every other station. *Side note – Do we even still need the news on T.V.? I mean I get my updates online like practically everyone else on the planet so usually by the time the reporters decide to fill me in during their morning song and dance I’ve already heard about it the day before.
Anyway, I got my body out of bed and went through my morning bathroom routine before settling back in bed with an over-flowing bowl of Reese’s Peanut butter cup cereal. For my first day of vacation I was totally looking forward to chilling in bed and watching all the trashy day time shows I usually miss by being at work. Jerry Springer is my all time favorite but this morning I couldn’t get into the Instagram stripper’s auditioning process and decided to turn on Hulu instead. I’ve been binge watching How I met your Mother for the third time but my attention quickly turned from the long running sitcom to Tumblr. If you aren’t already following me there, you should check it out. I can usually be found there if I’m not here.
So, Tumblr. I’ve been hanging out on there a lot recently. I scrolled through post after post about things that matter and things that don’t with the occasional porn break included while the popular sitcom played in the background.
My Tumblr shenanigans literally entertained me until my stomach started to rumble at around noon when I decided to go ahead and get up. I had been debating whether or not I wanted frozen hot wings or if I wanted to make some myself. I decided to let the grocery store make the decision for me. I grabbed my brother and we took the five minute drive to HEB. There’s something magical about going to the grocery store in the middle of a weekday. There’s hardly any cars on the road, parking is a breeze, and getting in and out of the store is a seamless process. Eager to get back home and back in bed I whizzed through the aisles of the store like a contestant on supermarket sweep. I grabbed some fresh chicken wings, cooking oil, juice and a few other things before I hit the scarcely occupied checkout lanes.
Back at home and armed with a fresh batch of homemade chicken wings I crawled back in bed to do something I haven’t had the time to do in quite a while.
I perused YouTube.
I got trapped there for the rest of the day. Catching up on all of the videos my favorite vloggers had been posting. I even took about an hour looking at hip hop choreography videos.
Today was an epically awesome day. I did nothing and it was everything I wanted it to be and more.
I’m going for lunch tomorrow with Heaven and I’m super excited about that. She’s found a restaurant that specializes in turkey legs. I even hear they stuff them with all types of things. Can we say big girl heaven?!?!? I can’t wait to see her tomorrow even though it means having to actually put on adult clothes for a short while.
Anywho, it’s late and I’m ready to cuddle up next to my already sleeping wife soooo…
Until next time…
Don’t judge me, you don’t know my life!!
