Life Lately. . .

Taking nice long hot showers in the morning.  I'm usually a night shower person.  I like to wake up as late as possible before work then I often work out afterwards but I've been taking showers almost exclusively in the morning for the last three weeks.  It's a nice refreshing way to start the day.  I'm scared to see the next water bill.

Reading actual books.  Well, on Kindle for i pad anyways.  I used to read all the time but I've been so busy reading blogs that I don't have time for books too.  I read two books in two weeks and am finishing up a 3rd.  They were all free on Amazon.

Eating peanut butter toast just about every single day for breakfast.  Still addicted. I can't get enough of that warm gooey goodness melting on top warm crispy bread.  There have only been 4 days over the last three weeks that I ate something else!!  When I get stuck on a food I am stuck on it and it could be weeks, months or even years before I ever decide to change it up.  I ate a Peanut Butter Sandwich for breakfast for about 2 years straight.  Notice a Peanut Butter Trend?  I'll be going back to egg beaters on work days but weekends will continue to be all about peanut butter toast.  With coffee.    

Watching Girls.  We don't have HBO but this was THE one show I wanted to binge watch while I had time.  I watched two seasons in two days.  I love the realism of the characters and the situations that they encounter.  They are real girls with flaws, money problems and insecurities.  I can relate.  It's so perfectly quirky and I'm officially hooked.  Can't wait to start burning through season 3 as soon as MJ gets it for me from wherever it is that he gets it.  I've also been watching the Olympics.  I watched all 8 hours of the short and long program ladies figure skating coverage. 

Wearing mostly pajamas.  I have only gotten dressed about 5 times over the last 3 weeks. 

Enjoying days that seem to last forever.  I haven't been at 100% over the last three weeks but I have been thoroughly enjoying this staycation full of time to myself.  I'm getting up early, reading, blogging, writing, watching TV,  watching movies, a few low key outings and staying up late.  Days like this go on and on forever in a really wonderful way.



 Mexican pizza I made for dinner

Appreciating my wonderful husband.  He's taken care of the laundry, dinner, dishes, cleaning house, errands and everything else on top of his long work days without complaint.  Wednesday was my first day out to the grocery store and making dinner and it felt really nice to finally do something for him.

Soaking up this amazing weather.  I'm not sure why this is happening and I haven't been going out that much but every time I do it's warm, sunny and beautiful.  It was about 80 today and we were all up in it enjoying it.

Dreading work on Monday.  No real explanation needed.  I'll be going from a whole lot of wonderful freedom and relaxation to a whole lot of work and I probably won't be 100% recovered for another three weeks or so.  I'm expecting a rough transition.

I have been wanting to watch Girls. I have heard it is so good! And I have never had peanut butter toast, but it sounds like something I would love. I love all things peanut butter! Sorry you have to go back to work tomorrow. Dumb work.

I usually follow your routine of sleeping as much as possible before work and working out after and showering at night. Now I'm intrigued as to how wonderful and refreshing morning showers are. If only I could drag myself out of bed in the morning :-P

So glad you have gotten to take it easy while you recover! It sounds like a great little break.....Girls, the Olympics, peanut butter toast, and a loving husband...sounds good to me. :) Good luck going back to work!!

I'm glad you got to take some time to yourself to rest up and catch up. Working everyday is so draining, it is refreshing to have actual time to detox from the real world and relax. I'm so happy you're feeling better!

Ahhhh, going back to work after such a great break is going to be painful. Glad you were able to relax and make the most of your break.

I've been on maternity leave for a week and I must say I am loving it.

Aw, back to work. Pick up a fancy coffee or something on your way in. That always helps me! And I'm with you on the getting stuck on foods. I just got off an English muffin kick that lasted months.

hope you survived going back to work! I also tend to eat the same thing for awhile. lately it's been greek yogurt for breakfast. and I love girls too. it's so weird but also strangely relatable.

I love Girls and Scandal. True Detective is also really good.
I had surgery last summer and was out for 8 weeks. I absolutely dreaded going back! :(
I so wish I could take a shower at night. It doesn't matter what time I take a shower if I lay down I HAVE to shower again. I just don't feel clean. I've taken a shower at 1am and had to get up at 4am for a flight and I had to get in the shower. I also shower before going to the beach. I'm weird and I know it! :)

Haha we have been home wasting extra water and power, and I thought the same thing about the bill! It's going to be ridiculous! Glad MJ is taking such good care of you!

Ashley R said...

I hope your first day back went well!! Glad you were taken such great care of.

That mexican pizza looks so good! I love to read and taking out ebooks from the library made the biggest difference in how much I was reading! Not only are the books free but the time limit on them made them more of a priority for me to actually take the time to read as opposed to playing a game or endlessly browsing pinterest on my ipad :)
