I had the day off on Monday. Don’t be jealous; I have to work on Saturday. My only goal for the day was to sit on the couch as much as possible and I think I succeeded. I did have to get out of the house for a little bit though to run some errands, but it wasn’t bad as everyone is off somewhere enjoying their spring break.
Let’s do a day-off-from-work run-down:
-My alarm went off at 8:30, but I stayed in bed until 9:15
-Post office to mail the pig and a swap package
-Michael’s to return a necklace holder
-Lunch. . . on the couch
-Watched a bad documentary about Rock Paper Scissors while cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry
-Watched a good documentary about online dating
-Watched a better documentary about Second Life
-Husband and the little man came home (the daughter is off somewhere enjoying her spring break)
My favorite thing to do on a day-off is window shop. I avoided that this time though because I’ve had a bit of difficultly controlling my spending habits lately. Still, TJ Maxx called to me most of the day. If the Ulta in my neighborhood was open yet, I would have lost all control.
Remember that to-do list I posted here last month while in the middle of my stress breakdown? Let’s do an update.
-1,000 word article for the same upcoming book (turns out this one isn’t due until August, yay!)

-Weekly readings and homework for project management class (Well, scratch this one off the list completely)
