I’m going to spare you the details of Friday the 21st because, you guys, it was the most boring work day ever. I got stuff done, sure, but I felt like time stood still so apart from my evening with Knight (Nachos, Netflix, dog walks) I am afraid Friday was nothing to write home about… at all. I’m going to finish off the day in the life posts with details about this past weekend!
Morning: Woke up at 6am thanks in part to the neighbor’s puppy barking up a storm and in part because Jack woke up in response. Took Jack for a quick walk, climbed back in bed, because 6am on a Saturday, managed to fall asleep for 90 more minutes. Started my day by making breakfast sandwiches: scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits with butter and optional cheese. Get ready for day.
Afternoon: run errands: return books to library (and of course borrow two more, request two others), drop off clothes at dry cleaners, go to Barnes & Noble to look at new covers for my New Nook (Knight brought one home for me this weekend!), have hot chocolate, meet my dad at B&N, and chat for awhile. Run to Target for dog food and a few other essentials. Head home and hang out for the afternoon: order Belle’s birthday presents, order a new Nook cover for me, kind of laze about and feel restless because we want to do something but we don’t know what. Knight watches College Football, I read the fourth and finale book in a romance series. Walk Jack. Change dinner plans with friends so we can go to a place that has the Mizzou game on.
Evening: At 5pm, get ready for our night out with friends. Attempt to curl my hair but the rainy weather causes a huge issue, so ponytail with a side braid it is. Meet friends for dinner at 6pm, wait for a table for 45 minutes, thankfully steal a few seats at the bar. Get seated, debate on what to order for dinner, enjoy a good dinner with our friends, and home before Saturday Night Live. I had two glasses of wine at dinner and thus, I have a horrible headache when we get home, fall asleep just after Weekend Update on SNL. 31 is glorious sometimes.
Morning: Still have a killer headache from the wine the night before (um, hangovers are horrible. Also, this is why I very rarely drink any sort of alcohol) which means I lay in bed until 9:30am, the laziest I’ve been in… ages. Wake-up by watching an episode of Will & Grace, finish the romance book, check work email since we are doing a project that involves in a customer in Dubai and the time zones are making communication difficult, get ready for the day. Receive an email from a friend with some not-so-awesome news so reach out to her, offer support and hopefully will be able to see her this week. (See also: so tired of receiving bad news. This world is full of it and it’s a lot to take and deal with sometimes.)
Afternoon: Make our way over to my dad’s. We discuss paint with my dad, because Knight is painting his bathroom for him this week, go grab some lunch at Jason’s Deli, then off to Lowe’s to pick out paint and look at some of the fun Christmas decorations. Drop dad off at his house, get gas because it’s $2.39 a gallon (!), head home, take Jack on a very rainy walk, and start making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to take to our friends’ house as we are having dinner with some long-lost friends. Watch Gilmore Girls while baking because Knight went back to Lowe’s to get some stuff for our house. Eat a cookie because omg, these cookies are delicious and I can’t resist.
Evening: Organize meal plans, grocery list and other misc. for the week. Do a little bit of reading, then get ready for dinner at our friend’s house a little before 6pm. Head to their house for an epic catch-up session, meet their kids (yup, it’s been THAT long since I’ve seen them, first time for Knight). Enjoy laughter, stories, and the promises of many more future dinners to come. Late night walk for Jack, quick email check, put away the rest of the cookies and go to bed close to 10:30 pm.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a weekend? Anyone else excited/proud if you manage to make it through half of Saturday Night Live?
