Lazy day off

When I have a day off from work, I plan all of the things I would like to accomplish. I would love to film videos, organize my makeup, take photos. But really what ends up happening is that I will go to one or two stores to run errands, and come home and be lazy. I love snuggling on the couch with my little xena. She currently is snoring away as I type up this blog on my phone. She's a silly little thing. 
I still have a bunch of things to do today, I can't help but enjoy this time away from the chaos, with a warm dog in my lap, casually browsing the Internet. Such is my life on a day off from work.

Too hot to handle

I'm officially dying from the heat. Well not literally, but it's very hot outside. I'm sitting here in Potbelly unable to move. I've got my farmhouse salad and I've already gone through one 20 oz diet coke. My whole body is aching in my business clothes. And I am dreading going back outside to walk to work. I love that I don't have to get in a car to get to my favorite lunchtime escape, but I hate the walk back, knowing that I will be soaked for the next 4 hours. To make things worse, my tattoo is in the healing phase which means it itches like crazy! ohhhh joy. 

In all seriousness, I do not enjoy heat. I work in an office environment where I have to be on my A game all day. I also wear 3/4 sleeve tops to cover my tattoo, which is miserable! 

My saving grace is knowing that I can bare all tomorrow on my day off. Well, not go out in the buff, but at least in a tank top and shorts. 

Are you in an area where heat is destroying your daily life?

50 Shades of Haaaaay

Image Credit:

I got the book “50 Shades of Gray” a while ago. Actually, I bought it when it first came out on paperback. I’m not going to lie, I was intrigued, and wanted to see what all of the hype was about it. I read about ¼ of the book before I put it down. I lost interest…quickly. I feel almost uncomfortable reading it.

So here we are a couple of years later, and the movie comes out. I chose not to see it in the movie theater, on account of 1. No one would see it with me and 2. I was afraid that I would be surrounded by horny couples or wives trying to get husbands to spice things up.

I added it to the Netflix queue when it came out on DVD. I still put off watching it for a while. Finally, I just started the movie (Anna was there too) and just watched it. It started off slow…almost cheesy.  It was kind of like Twilight meets some kind of sex movie. But then once we started watching for a while, I got sucked in. And it wasn’t the sex parts either. I was more interested by the emotional connection (*spoiler* and lack thereof from Gray) And then the movie just stopped! I ended with tears down my face and anger for not having a resolution to the plot line!

All in all, I liked it. I am contemplating as to whether or not I actually want to read the book again, and possibly the other books.

Have you read it? Let me know what you all think.
