Another week has started, but it’s following a long weekend … so I’m more okay with it than usual
I had a fabulous long weekend. I did everything I wanted to do, except for maybe get entirely caught up on sleep. But oh well! I’m sure I’ll catch up soon (cough, cough … by falling asleep the second I walk in the door all week).
Being on the morning radio show Friday morning was a TOTAL blast. The DJ and I had total chemistry on air, and the listeners I spoke to afterwards seemed to enjoy the show. It went really well! So much so, that the next time the regular co-host goes on vacation, they’re going to ask me back! Filling in for a couple of hours made me realize how much I miss being in radio. In a perfect world, I would work 5AM to 9AM on the radio, and then head to my regular job as a TV reporter until 5PM. I know that sounds totally crazy. But I know a couple of people who do it. Wouldn’t that be awesome?!
How true is this?!
On Saturday morning, I got my butt out of bed a lot earlier than I wanted to and went down to the local Farmers Market with my parents. It was packed! It was my first trip there this season. I didn’t buy anything, but there were several displays that tempted me (especially the pies and jams!). After grabbing coffee with my parents and running a couple of errands, I had a friend come over to do … nothing. We were suuuuper lazy and it was amazing. We legitimately watched six (maybe more?) episodes of One Tree Hill. I own them all on DVD. Obviously.
I didn’t look back … but I would be interested to see how many One Tree Hill pictures I’ve had on this blog
We both eventually gathered enough energy to get our butts off of the couch and go get sushi around 5PM. I was starving, so of course I forgot to take pictures. Whoops. Imagine endless pieces of salmon sashimi, seaweed salad (of course!), edamame, and california rolls. Hit. The. Spot.
Then we went dancing! We knew our favorite club was going to be dead since it was a holiday weekend, but it didn’t matter. As long as there is music, we’re usually in! It was really strange to have as much space as I wanted on the dance floor. But hey, more room to make a fool of myself, right?
I didn’t get a lot of sleep Saturday night, because I hit the pillow at almost 2AM and needed to get out of bed at 8AM. A friend of mine had a full day of things to accomplish several hours out of town, and he asked if I wanted to keep him company on the drive. All I needed was a (large!) mug of coffee and I was all his It was a wonderful day! After getting everything done, we got back into the city around 3PM. A different friend (my fellow One Tree Hill addict from above) and I grabbed dinner before heading to the local movie theatre.
Aaaaaand it was sold out. I’m cursed. I tried to see The Five Year Engagement a few weeks ago and it was sold out too. Blah. So I went home. After a lengthy Skype session with my best friend and a new episode of Girls, I went to bed (and got 12 hours of sleep, I might add!).
Yesterday was quiet. I got in a much needed sweat session. I hadn’t been to the gym since Wednesday morning, so I ran 2 miles (as much as I would like to be, I am NOT a runner), and biked a hilly 3 miles before stopping by my grandparents house for a quick visit. The rest of the day was filled with the latest episode of Ellen, a nap, finally getting to the Glamour magazine I bought more than a week ago, and The Bachelorette.
Whew! A full weekend, and a terribly long post for you to read. I know not all of you had a long weekend (although one is coming up for my readers south of the border!), but I’d still love to know how you spent your days away from work. What was the highlight of your weekend?
