Lie In

in All Posts

I felt like a walking zombie this morning.


We have accomplished absolutely nothing today.  The temperature is hovering at 90 degrees, the heat is overwhelming, and both the Husband and I feel incredibly sloth-like.  We literally laid on the floor of the living room for well over two hours doing the, “What do you want to do today?” game, which goes like this:  “What do you want to do today?”…. “I dunno, what do you want to do today?”…. “I’m not sure – what do YOU want to do?”


We talked about going out to lunch, going to the gym, cleaning the kitchen.  But we just couldn’t move from the floor!  Hah.


I think Maggie and James like it when we get down on the floor – Maggie especially.  It’s weird to see life from her perspective.  My floors look extra dirty from her angle.  Hah!  She is low-low-low.



Oh wait – we DID do something.


We listened to music.  I’m lovin’ the Death Cab for Cutie station on Pandora lately. 


And we ate.  I think eating is the one thing we’re really in the mood for today. Winking smile


Peanut butter toast with banana and strawberries.


And mac and cheese, salad, and watermelon.


At the end of our “What do YOU want to do today?” game, we decided that the only thing we actually wanted to do was sit on the couch and watch loads of TV.  I hate to feel like I’m wasting a Saturday, but maybe a day of total relaxation isn’t a waste at all.  Hey – at least I’ve moved off the floor!

    It is A-OKAY to take a day to relax and rest and just be a bit lazy–especially since you guys are so go-go-go all week long 🙂 Enjoy it!! We’re taking the rest of the day slower too, if that makes you feel any better. Hehe 😉

    I think you should enjoy the time in your house 🙂 It may be a tad different in a few weeks, just a tad 🙂

    Listen to your body! Sometimes you just really need to relax. Enjoy your Saturday!

    Enjoy the last few weeks you have together as a “couple”. That’s what me and my fiance are doing. Life will never be the same after our little one arrives and we are fine with that but making the most of our time together as just us. Even if it is doing nothing. We’ll do nothing together!

    That’s my favorite station on Pandora. I like to listen to it while I clean the kitchen, which is probably what I’ll be doing today. It’s definitely too hot here to do anything outside.

    relaxing and doing nothing is never a waste!

    Love seeing pictures of your belly 🙂 It just looks like a ball under your shirt! Your last sentence reminded me of this quote:
    Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.”

    I agree, some days you just need to veg and recuperate 🙂

    Enjoy this time of doing nothing now before the baby comes! Once the baby arrives, it may be awhile before you have this type of opportunity again.

    Mmmm watermelon + mac ‘n cheese = perfect summer dinner!

    I love days like that :). It’s just too hot to do anything else!

    Looks like one of my favorite kind of days 🙂
