Lately when I’ve run into friends, they always seem to ask, “What have you been up to lately?”. My usual response is something along the lines of, “Oh, you know, just taking care of the kids and keeping busy.”. I hate to tell them that the only things I’ve really accomplished since the holidays is binge watching TV shows.
I have had absolutely no motivation to get anything done! And there’s a ton to do. I’m sitting in my office that pretty much just has a path to walk around. I did, however, complete the entire series of Downton Abbey!
It took me about two, or maybe three weeks, to semi-complete organizing my closet after I pulled down piles of clothes to go through and then left them on the floor to walk over. I also watched season four of Grace and Frankie.
I finished re-watching Friends back in January after starting it last fall. And I am wayyyy behind the game but after having watched the first seven seasons of The Office, I decided to finally watch the last two seasons and I am having the hardest time getting over the last episode! Jim and Pam are serious relationship goals.
I had high hopes for all of the things I was going to accomplish this winter. There were several things I was going to finished around the house and, of course, blog about them. I had wanted to start sewing. I picked out a pattern, bought the fabric, and convinced my Mom to help me get started. But I guess there’s still time.
But then I think about the things I did get done, like getting a couple of cavities filled and having one become abscessed leading to a root canal. And just a little tip, if you’re looking to lose a few pounds, just get an abscessed tooth! You’ll be in too much pain to even eat or sleep. Of course, after losing said pounds, you’ll be so tired and hungry no one will want to be around you. I also got a ton of laundry folded with the iPad propped up and Netflix going.
So here’s to binge watching and getting a whole lot of nothing done so far this year!
