Couch Potato Day
It's one thing to take a day for yourself after several weeks of non-stop stress, work and travel....
It's another to be sitting on your couch at 6:15 PM watching a christian country gospel show in the pair of sweats you pulled on over your jammies at 6:15 AM after reading the newspaper front to back, watching endless (and unmemorable) TV shows while simultaneously posting on Facebook.
Add to the mix a day-long munchfest, overcooked brussel sprouts and cold ravioli for dinner, and a resulting longing to cook well enough to be on Top Chef, and you have an authentic, totally wasted, couch potato day.
I am not a potato and I don't even like my couch anymore so that leaves "day", and this one must have been necessary in some form, but it is wasted now. One day - gone.
I hope tomorrow will at least get me to the rocking chair. But for now, it's an early bedtime for me! A day of non-activity and non-production is more exhausting for me than my normal multitasking productive hours.
This couch potato is gonna pull the quilt up, tuck her toes under the cushions and close her "eyes". Not even a Tempur-pedic can tempt me tonight.
I am a couch potato today and it's a couch potato day, and night.
Now where's that remote.....?
