Snow days. By the second day at home, I’m starting to hear people, my fiance included, whining. They’re bored. They want to do something. They want to go to work and do something productive. Well, I have a confession: I could do nothing all day, all week and love every minute of it. When I tell people this, I’m pretty sure they think I am the laziest, most worthless human being alive, but it’s the truth. I did not want the snow day because I know I’ll have to pay for it later, but while it is here, I love being stuck in the house doing “nothing”.
I really have a tough time wrapping my mind around this concept of doing “nothing”. How do people really think that they’re doing “nothing”? I don’t agree with this. In fact, I feel quite productive on days that I’ve done “nothing”. Let’s see....
I went to the gym early yesterday and got a great workout in before the snow started falling, still getting home in time to shower, straighten my hair, and cook up a delicious breakfast that was ready just as the fiance got out of bed.
I caught up on my favorite morning programs like the Today Show and Kelly & Michael. I actually knew what was going on in the world. I got to drink two cups of coffee out of an actual mug and look out my breakfast window and the beautiful sights of nature (the snow was definitely falling by now).
I reorganized my Pinterest Boards. And through doing so, I gathered inspiration and excitement for my upcoming wedding festivities, Valentines Day, and spring in general. Always gotta have something to look forward to.
I wrote 3 full posts for the blog. No, it’s not an actual job. I’m not getting paid for this. Other people may not care. I did it for FUN and my own personal enjoyment. If you don’t get it, read Whitney’s post and maybe you’ll understand.
I managed to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner out of my own kitchen. Ok, dinner may have been a frozen pizza, but after breakfast and lunch, I was unwilling to take the pots and pans out for the third time. I’m still impressed with myself.
I did some laundry, enjoyed a glass (or 2) of wine, and shoveled the sidewalk to our mailbox.
So all in all, I’d say that doing “nothing” is pretty spectacular. Where do you stand? Are you going stir crazy cooped up in the house? Or do you enjoy getting snowed in?
