Lazy Day

I don't remember the last time I spent a day in my pajamas when I wasn't sick. I had all these grand plans for today. I was going to get the bus to NYC and spend some time exploring the city, which I haven't done in several years. Or I was going to organize my room, and build the new pantry shelves and a bunch of other stuff.

 But when I woke up this morning I realize, I just really didn't want to go anywhere or do anything. I have the house to myself and that's rare. And really, when I thought about it, I decided I was just not in the mood to do anything. Not that I wasted the whole day. I mean, I did some quality work around the couch -  for example I'm watching Grandma's Boy right now and drinking left over wine coolers from my "Sweet Sixteen Do-Over" party.* I mean, because if I didn't, the nice peheople at the FX channel might be feel inadequate, and how would the refridgerator ever get emptied of all the left-overs?

So, I stayed in my PJs. All day. I considered going out for take-out, but uhm, that would require clothes. As would answering the door for delivery. And even though I was out of Diet Coke, my desire to do nothing has already over-ridden my need for even that. As cold DC is about the closest thing I have to a soulmate, you can understand how monumental a decision this one is for me.

*Yes, wine coolers are pretty icky, but listen, you only turn 16 twice, and what do sixteen-year-olds drink? Whatever crappy stuff they can get their hands on. Which made the perfect girly drink to have on hand for the party. Also, they are pink.
