Weekend Update – Flying Solo

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope you had an excellent weekend! Mine was a great mix of productivity, relaxation, and spending time with friends 🙂

I snuck out of work early to get home and let the dogs out. I always feel bad when they’re stuck home alone all day. They were VERY happy to see me. I spent my evening in my PJs, chilling with the animals and finally wrapping up LOST on Netflix. Next up is season 2 of Stranger Things, and then maybe Grey’s Anatomy? That’s another one that I know was hugely popular when I was in school, but I never watched.

The only crappy thing about Friday night was burning the ever-loving shit out of my hand while loading the wood stove. Seriously. Ouch.


The dogs woke me up around 7:30 and I was up for the day. I made myself some breakfast, fed the dogs, fed the horse, and got started on the first of several loads of laundry. I changed the sheets on our bed and everything!

After the flurry of activity in the morning, I spent the afternoon in my comfy pants binge-watching season two of Stranger Things. So good! Around 6:30 I had to pretty much force myself to get dressed and put some makeup on to go into town for my friend Megan’s birthday celebration. It took a LOT of effort, but I’m glad I ended up going. So many friends were there, and it was great to see everyone.

It was another early morning thanks to the dogs, and another productive morning. I did another load of laundry, vacuumed, and put away all the laundry I did on Saturday.

Around noon, I left to meet my friend Sarah for lunch. We’re going to BroadwayCon together in January, so we did a little bit of brainstorming about what we want to do while we’re in the city. We decided we’re going to see Phantom of the Opera (which neither of us has seen even though it’s been playing FOREVER), and Come From Away.

By the time I got home, Ben and my in-laws were home from New York too. We spent some time chatting and catching up, and after a delicious beef stew supper, Ben and I hunkered down in our room to relax and watch the Ken Burns Prohibition documentary on Netflix.

All in all it was a great, lazy weekend, but I have GOT to get my butt in gear and get back to CrossFit and at least try to run. I can’t go complete couch potato all winter. It won’t be pretty.

Did you have a lazy weekend like me?
