#Stay-cation naps are the WORST.

I am super thankful to have a job that allows me paid days off. I love long weekends, getting stuff done and not HAVING to do anything.  I love sleeping in, eating, cleaning, etc.  I look forward to my coffee in the morning and starting the day.  I don’t enjoy it at 3am.  I took advantage of my Thanksgiving Stay-Cation at home and over napped.  Can a person over nap?  YES. YES THEY CAN.  Okay yes I CAN.  My brain tries to calculate hours of sleep to maintain some version of normal but it never pans out.  I think to myself, “Ok.  It’s 2pm so if I take a two hour nap I’ll be up by 4pm and once I’m functional I can think about dinner…and I’ll probably be in bed by 11 and if I get 8 hours of sleep then I’ll be up by 7am and if I need to I can always take a nap tomorrow since I’m off on Sunday so if I’m up early on Sunday I can nap that afternoon but an early nap because I have to be in bed Sunday night by at least 10 so I can try for 8 hours of sleep since I have to work Monday.”

What really happens is I set my alarm for my naps, hit the snooze button way too many times when they go off and end up pushing my calculated sleep schedule forward by usually around two hours.  Now here I am, 5am, up since 3 and writing this-while I think about when I will nap later today. Hashtag problems.     😉



This boot is made for….walkin’!

So happy that today might be the day to get my boot off!  I am fully aware there are people in the world with severe disabilities-this post is not for them.  It’s mine!  At the end of July I fractured my right heel and ended up on a soft cast and a storm trooper boot.  Days after getting my boot off, I broke my LEFT heel in three spots, and ended up in another storm trooper boot.  It is the day before Thanksgiving and I might actually get my boot off!  I wish I had better stories to go along with the breaks, however I was just WALKING in both instances.  The goal is to strengthen my ankles at this point.  I didn’t need surgery-yay!  My newest worry is now that I could possibly be getting my boot off, is the fact that WINTER IS COMING and I will be learning to walk “normally” again in the snow.  I’m trying my best to really really WATCH where I am going and to SLOW THE HELL DOWN.  We will see!

Because #Turkey?

That super awesome day that everyone looks forward to every year is quickly approaching.  Yes that’s right.  Wild Turkey Wednesday.  The day when bros and their bro counterparts take part in drinking large amounts of Wild Turkey because the only day it’s actually acceptable to lay around all day and do nothing is in fact, Thanksgiving.  Why not start your turkey day off right with a hangover and some hair of the dog while your mom sweats her ass off in the kitchen prepping that can of cranberry sauce that you’re not even going to eat because you and your bros had a “wicked awesome time at the bar last night”?  I’m generalizing and stereotyping.  I’m always one of the few people who appreciates all the effort that goes into prepping a large meal for people-but don’t climb on your high horse just yet.  My grandmother made a family dinner for a minimum of 8 people once a week for YEARS-so don’t get all uppity because you made Thanksgiving dinner-some people actually cook their meals like, ALL THE TIME.  Also let’s not forget all the people who still have to go to work on Thanksgiving.  Try to think about what you’re actually thankful for, do it more than once a year, and don’t be an idiot because you’re home on break from college and think your parents are your house keepers-THEY AREN’T.  Oh and if you’re planning on having a WICKED GOOD TIME the night before Thanksgiving, at least drink something decent like Jameson, and don’t drive.  END RANT.
