Doing Nothing is Hard

This weekend was tiring and I’m not even sure I did that much. Yesterday, Morgan, Don, and the hubs went to Cocoa Beach for the day. I decided to stay home and be lazy. I did close to nothing and I’m still tired. Interesting how that works.

I hung out by the pool with my Nook.

Bring the eyes up, folks. Nothing to see there.

At the pool, I started reading Bossypants by Tina Fey.

I’ve only read about 30 pages so far, but I have to say I’m not that into it. While I love Tina Fey and think she’s hilarious, I don’t really care about her “yellow” versus brunette hair rant or who she hung out with at summer camp when she was 12. I’ll give it one more chance, but so far it’s just not engrossing enough for my ADD.

Reading for a half hour by the pool took a lot out of me, so I immediately took a nap afterwards. When I got up, I ran 4 miles on the treadmill at a 10:00 pace just so I can say I did something other than drink beer and shove food in my mouth all weekend.

After my run, everyone was home from the beach. So we all met up with our friend Carolyn for dinner at Fuji Yama Sushi where I resumed shoving food in my mouth.

When I was about to pay the bill because I am a sugar mama, I realized I left my debit card at Stigma the night before. So we had to drive downtown to get it. 🙁 I blame the big, delicious beer.

This morning a guy at work that I don’t know told me I look very “Bohemian.” When I had no response, he told me that was a good thing. I think I made him uncomfortable because he then told me about a movie he saw over the weekend. It was about some kid that could only understand people through music and the dad had to learn to talk to his son in his own “music” language. I thought this was going to relate to Bohemians at some point, but it didn’t. He just told me the movie was good and walked away. Now I can’t get “What I Am” from Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians out of my head.

And because this post doesn’t have nearly enough pictures of me, this is for you, Angie. Bohemian?

Oh, and someone special has a birthday today. This little girl!

We got that sweet thing on September 24th two years ago when she was 8 weeks old, so I designated August 1 as her birthday since we don’t know the actual date. Happy Birthday Pants!

For her birthday next year, she’s really hoping to have three chins. She was only able to manage two this year.

    Paula,
    I just love your blogs! They always make me smile or even laugh out loud. That’s not necessarily a good thing, because I’m usually at work when I read them :D. But I just love them. Are you gonna post about your poopball 12 miler?

  3. I love that little bunny!

    I have left my card at a few bars in my day, too. Unfortunately, one time I left it at a bar that has a policy of charging $50 on all cards that are left. On top of whatever amount you already spent. Crazy!! My bank was awesome and remove the charge. The bar wouldn’t even budge when I tried to get them to take it off. I never went back there again.

    • Holy crap! I wouldn’t go back again either. That’s ridiculous! This place didn’t even charge my beer from the night before. They waited till I picked it up. So, I gave the guy a good tip. 🙂

    I got stick at Bob Evans the other day without my card. But it wasn’t because I had a drunken awesome time somewhere. It was because my husband had to use my card and forgot to put it back in my wallet. So boring.

  5. Ahh..September 24 is my birthday. What a perfect day to get a bunny!

    I can’t decide on the Bohemian. Do you have a long flowing skirt and strappie sandals on? Kind of a strange first conversation with a coworker!

    • Yeah, it’s a long maxi dress type thing. I guess it looks a little tie-dye-ish? No sandals though. But yes, definitely an odd first conversation. 🙂

  6. You are so Bohemian, girl. 😉 You look super cute, either way!

    I started reading Bossypants a few months ago at my friend’s house, but couldn’t steal it because she’d probably notice. I neeeed to finish it!

  8. Pants is so cute!

    I brought the Kindle to work so I could read more of HG #2 at lunch. And i read all day yesterday. Lazy days rule!

  9. Awwww Happy Birthday Bunnypants!

  10. Hahah – that story is hilarious. I like the bohemian look myself – so it probably was a compliment! And I’ve yet to leave my tab open at a bar, but it happens far too often to everyone I know!

    Happy birthday to your bunny! So cute!

  11. Hoppy Birthday Pants! Yep, I just punned that one a little bit.

    Being lazy is awesome. You have to relax a little every now and then!

  12. Taking a nap following laying about is a must. I have to say, that’s how I’ve spent a fair amount of my summer.*

  13. Happy Birthday Pants! Good luck on the triple chin next year!

  14. Oh my gosh, I just love bunnies. Happy birthday to Pants

  15. Happy Birthday to that cute little girl 🙂

    I loved Bossypants!

  16. Thank you for letting me know that I’m not the only one who exerts so much energy doing nothing. And, who drinks big mugs of beer.

    Winks & Smiles,

    Did you have a panick attack when you couldn’t find your debit card? I would have. Ahhh! Glad you remembered where it was!

    I wonder what spurred that fine gentleman to speak to you, other than you looked “bohemian”. Creeper.
