I LOVE doing nothing

Yes, I love doing nothing. I admit it. I love spending my weekends with my brain turned off and using zero energy. Every once and a while I like to throw caution to the wind and maybe go to the movies or miniature golfing. I think for me it helps to do as little as possible over the weekend so I can have more energy to get my ass up early as fuck to get to the gym and then do a full 8 hour day of stressful work. Knowing I have a leasurly weekend ahead helps me get through it. I don’t like making any plans unless it’s something I really truly want to do and will get a lot of enjoyment out of. If I make plans with you then you know I want to be there because I’m giving up at least a few hours of my precious weekend to you instead of with my couch.

Sad? Maybe but at least I’m spending my time how I want it right?

    Just as you were posting this, I was exhausted, in my kitchen, doing the hundredth thing that had to be done before I could go to sleep and thinking that, when I got a minute, I was going to go post something thoughtful about how you don’t really know what ‘exhausted’ means until you’ve spent a 3-day weekend as a mom.

    I envy your peaceful sanity 😀

    (note: I never did get the energy to post anything about it 😆 )

    One of the main reasons I don’t want to be a mother but I admire those who can do it.
