Planning for a Day Off

It’s almost as delicious as a day off. Before I start working today I’m planning my day off tomorrow. Such fun. Even though I didn’t go to any movies last year, I can’t wait for the Oscars. I just find the whole thing so entertaining, the red carpet, the clothes, everything. I don’t know why! But when I’m finished working for the day I will go out and get myself a selection of healthy and not-so-healthy treats to snack on while watching, I’ll clean up the apartment and then exercise so I can be a complete and total slug tomorrow. I will be blogging my day and the Oscars.

Last night I went out to dinner with my friend Chris. We’ve know each other since we were 13! She still looks fabulous. Even though we’re not spring chickens anymore (what does that even mean? why do I use expressions I don’t really understand?) she’s managing to still look great. I can see the 13 year old in her face still. I can even still see the mischief. (She was a very mischievous young lady. As was I.)

  1. I’m guessing you’re still very mischievous.
    Have fun watching the Oscars–your day off sounds wonderful!
    I once saw a birthday card with the Tasmanian Devil (from Looney Tunes) on it, that said, “You no spring chicken anymore…more like autumn turkey!” I don’t know what the saying means either but I always call myself an “autumn turkey” and it still makes me laugh.
