I prefer to be lazy, but sometimes I have to be productive

Today I am recupperating from a busy, busy day yesterday. I ended up taking a two and a half hour nap with Hoss today. I didn't mean to fall asleep, it just happened. That is only after it took me an hour to drive five miles today because it snowed an entire 1/4 inch.

So, back to yesterday. I was off work and I decided I needed to be productive because I was not very productive Thursday when I was off work.

I had to get Hoss to school at 7a.m. so I was up at 6a.m. ON MY DAY OFF! That should be illegal. But since I was up, I decided it was time to be productive.

I ran over to Macys after I dropped Hoss off at school (they opened at 7!) to get a Christmas present while it was on sale. Then I met Donnie at Mickey D's for a quick breakfast. We then went to get my tires fixed. I noticed a screw in my rear tire the day before and one of my other tires was having issues. We went to a used tire place Donnie has used before. I was in and out of there in 20 minutes and paid $45 for a new tire and repair to the tire with the screw in it (actually, it had 3 in it! Darn construction at work!). I was amazed.

Donnie and I parted ways and I continued on to do more Christmas shopping, stopping at 4 stores plus the mall.

I arrived home around 11:45a.m. and heated up my leftovers from Olive Garden the day before. I made a few phone calls that were on my to do list and at 1p.m. we left and went to see a movie.

After the movie we stopped at another store to check prices on a bike for Hoss then to pick up some books for church at another store. We picked up Hoss and returned home where I cooked supper.

Once the dishes were in the dishwasher I started my second load of laundry for the day. Much to my husband's chagrin, I was pulling out Christmas deocration boxes by 6p.m.

At 9p.m. I was mostly done with decorating inside the house and started putting the boxes back. Hoss went to bed and around 11p.m., after catching up on DVR shows, I went to bed.

I awoke this morning around 8:30a.m. and sat around the house being lazy for hours. And that is how I get things done!

I love those days when you can take a nap! I have those very rarely, but it is so nice!!!
