Jess' Day Off

So far, my day has been nothing but relaxing. I slept in (glorious!), lounged about and read the news, drank my coffee, and checked the blogs (oh, I like to keep a close eye on all of you). Then I did a few household chores: dishes, made the bed, watered plants, took out the garbage, that kinda shiz-nit. And then I went laid out by the pool for a spell.

It was too hot to lay out there for long (sweat was dripping off me and onto my book, so that wasn't very comfortable), but the pool was surprisingly refreshing and it felt nice to soak up a little sun and get my dose of vitamin D for day. After I showered, and got myself dressed, I decided to go shopping, but you know what? Everyone is at the mall doing back-to-school shopping, so the place was pretty busy and I only had the patience to visit two stores before feeling done with the whole business.

But before heading home, I stopped by the running store to stock up on some GU and Sports Beans (I've never tested them out before and I'm thinking of giving them a go), then came home and made myself a salad for lunch. The rest of my afternoon? I think I'm gonna plop down on the couch and do some reading in the cool comfort of air conditioning.

Having no agenda and doing what I wanna do at my pace is pretty sweet. If only this vacation could last all summer!

Hey, for tomorrow you should plan some activities and challenges, like a hot dog eating contest, sumo wrestling in those inflatable suits, and finally the walk across hot coals!

There's even a reference to Harry Potter in that episode, if you recall. :-)

I'm jealous. Sounds like retirement to me...

Randy said...

Did someone mention retirement??? Oh yes, let's look into that past time...where do I sign up?

Hey Jess...I like the idea of a "blog meeting" somewhere...but it would need to be some place runner friendly and definitely scenic and easily accessible with reasonable airfares.....don't give up on that thought.....

I love school shopping!! 10 cent notebooks, new packages of Bic Ultra Round Stic Grip pens, and funky colored index cards! But I agree with you, I despise the crowds -I hate having to fight the youngin's for the coolest folders and best colored notebooks! Haha

I like the beans, can't really do the GU yet. I need to acquire a taste. Sounds very relaxing - I love AC!!!
