Oh, man. I am having the hardest time getting myself back into a routine. Today is the second day in a row I’ve had to pull my towel dried hair into a ponytail while running out the door. My mind is scattered, my body feels exhausted and I can’t seem to get a handle on either. I try to focus with very little success. I try to sleep but find myself restless. I think I need some “me” time.
And that’s exactly what I plan on having this weekend. I know Sunday is Mother’s Day, but Mama and I have discussed it and I intend on sitting my butt here in Andalusia and catching up on some much needed rest. This will be the first weekend in SEVEN weeks that I’ve been able to stay home and relax. I’ve put over 2,000 miles on my car since I got the oil changed April 3rd. And my house is a mile and a half away from work, so it’s not from commuting.
Friday night, my friend Kelley and I are going to grab some dinner and see a play. And I honestly don’t even know the name of it – I just agreed to go. She said it’s a bit risqué, so I’m wondering what I signed myself up for. Should be interesting. Although, I have to wonder what’s considered risqué in small-town Alabama. Surely we’re not talking about nudity – I don’t see the citizens of Mayberry allowing that one. Not that I’m complaining. I’ve yet to see anyone walking around Wal-Mart that’d I’d give money to see naked. In fact, I’d pay a few of them to wear more clothing – or at least clothing that fits properly.
I’ve decided that I might not even change out of my pajamas on Saturday. Seriously. I might find a comfy spot on the couch to park my rear end and catch up on some reading. It’s supposed to beautiful here this weekend though – if I only had a hammock. Then I could be lazy outside. And maybe get some much needed sun. I might have to find one by this weekend. I can picture it now… me and my hammock, my trusty Kindle and a cold beverage (or two). Talk about the perfect day.
What about y’all? What’s your idea of a perfect Saturday? Relaxation or something more exciting?
