Saturday:) Just Sitting Around

23 Oct

“When bored of sitting, move! When bored of moving, sit! Balance your life or there will remain neither moving nor sitting in your life but only falling!” 

― Mehmet Murat ildan


Another lazy Saturday. Beautiful weather and nothing to do. I can only walk so many miles before my shoes wear out. Then.. my friend…and world’s greatest realtor, Linda Grossman called and asked if I wanted to go somewhere for dinner and watch the Cubs. Yay!

So, I’m  off in a second. Rescued again from the Saturday night doldrums. 

Maybe we’ll bring them some luck from down in Texas. GO CUBS!!!

Saturday:( Super Sluggish and Boring Day. 

1 Aug

Doing anything when you’re bored is very very boring. Anyway, doing nothing is the point of being bored. The pleasure of being bored is mooning about and doing nothing.Aidan Chambers, This is All: The Pillow Book of Cordelia Kenn


Saturday started off with a zip, but slithered downhill from there. I was up and out the door for a run/ walk, or joggle, as I like to call it, by 7:22 and done by 8:30. It was only 79/80 degrees with a slight breeze. Perfect weather. Then, drink lots of water , call Mom, then off to Zumba,  9:30-10:30, so fun. I was pumped and had a little extra umba in my Zumba. 

After I got home, before I even walked in the door, I pulled a few weeds, trimmed my lone crepe myrtle tree a bit, sprayed some ants and bugs, then came in and plopped on the couch. 

I’ve been sitting here vegetating ever since. I have checked my email and Facebook at least 857 times, hoping to find something fun to do, or an invitation to do something, anything. 

Alas, it’s 4:30 and I’m still sitting here with a cookie , a cup of tea, and watching endless mindless movies on the Hallmark Channel. I’m bored. HELP!!! 

“Anyway, doing nothing is the point of being bored.” (And, I do it well)


Maybe I should go out for another walk?
