Wednesday,Please don't laugh at me

     I don't know but paying off the house may have been a bad thing.  I was gone for 10 days to Cancun and since I have been back I have not sewn a thing.  I didn't even get all the laundry done yesterday.  I used the excuse that I had run out of soap, but then we did go and get some and I still did not do it.

     Kim may be broken.  Do you think?

     I also have been waking up at 6 in the morning as apposed to my usual 9.  Of course there was a 2 hour time difference plus we hit the weekend of daylight savings so my clock is messed up.  But these early mornings are making my days long and I have taken a nap both Monday and Tuesday.  I could so dig this as a habit.  Although I am sure the shop will not allow it as a permanent feature in my life.

     Today the littles are coming and I have to cook dinner for my friend, so I will not be sitting around doing nothing.  In fact I have to get in the shop and sew at least one pair of pants.  I mean really?  What is wrong with me?  Me loves being lazy.

     I was able to pick up a check from the studio owner and pay my savings account back and I also picked up some costumes that need alterations for the upcoming Dec. 7th show.

     Dinner today will be chicken legs that I bought for 50% off at .69 a pound.  I will split the thigh from the leg and roll them in breading and bake with a spray of oil.  I will also use garden potatoes and yesterday I did put together a large broccoli slaw.  I think I will make up a couple of Swedish almond cakes and freeze one as my friend loves this for dessert.

     Yesterday, Hubs and I went to two grocery stores to get needed things and I was as frugal as ever. I finally found sweet potatoes at a half way decent price.  I have been craving sweet potatoes, but have refused to pay $1.69 a pound for them.

     Well I wonder how long this slump of doing virtually nothing will last?  Do I have any readers that want to take bets?  I could make up a chart or something.

     I am loving life right now.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. Not so much a slump, more a well deserved break from the pressure you've been under.
    It might take a time to re adjust... but enjoy !

  2. It's okay to take a break and to enjoy a nap or two. You will be back at it in no time. Enjoy the down time!

  3. You are anything BUT lazy!!! We all need a break now and then. You have had a lot of work and excitement in the past few weeks, and deserve some down time. I get these days as well, and I just go with the flow. Your body lets you know when it needs to slow dawn.

  4. Kim,
    I am sure you will adjust. Your body and mind are discombobulated from all that has been happening and relieved after paying off the house. It will all come back together for you. That early rising needs to go! I would be so disappointed by that turn of affairs. Maybe a day with the littles and no chance for a nap will help put you back on track. However, I was thinking the other day that so many of my older friends have a nap planned every day. I am not ready for that. Your body and mind are confused.

  5. I get up at 5:30-6 am and take a nap around 2 and go to sleep at 10....Daddy always took a nap at 2-3 depending on his shift at the factory. Mother never did. Daddy had less health problems compared to Mother. He always said it was because he rested more.

    1. I think naps are the best and there might be something to the longevity.

  6. Enjoy your down time girl--you've earned it!

  7. You're not really broken, you're just refurbishing yourself to assume your workload again.

    1. Please don't say that word(s) workload..... shudder.

  8. I never apologize or feel guilty when I rest more than usual. I work hard all summer and deserve it!
