I did absolutely nothing this weekend, and you know what - it was fantastic. A sore throat, endless sneezing and an overall cloudy judgement last week left me feeling lazy and needy. Not sure if it's a bug going around, but the season is changing, so whatever it was, allergy or a cold, I'm just glad it's gone. When I got out of work Friday night, I decided I was going to treat myself. No work, no chores, nothing. I started off by calling my partner to figure out dinner. Pizza. Yes, grease was exactly what I needed to help get this lazy weekend started off right. We ordered, two larges (don't judge me) and ate and watched some T.V. At 9 p.m., I was completely done. I had fallen to sleep on the couch. I opened one eye, and realized I was much too tired. By 10 p.m., I was sleeping in my warm bed upstairs. I woke up at 6 a.m. on the dot, and so did my partner. We had both completely knocked out. Tacos. We need some good breakfast tacos. Well, my place has always been TNT, so we got there, ordered four tacos to go, got home, and watched "I Love Lucy." Then 10 a.m. rolled around, and I was tired again. Sleep. Opened my eyes to see a cloudy 2 p.m. Showered. No time to shave. Went downstairs and I was determined to beat Devil May Cry.

I had started this video game several weeks ago, and I really wanted nothing more than to just feel like a kid again. I played for several hours, without fail. I played about halfway, and realized, we needed more food. The cycle was endless, and I'll be honest, it felt great. What I did Saturday carried over into Sunday. Again, I showered (I wasn't that lazy) but I refused to shave. It's amazing to feel completely free from any responsibility. I let the dishes pile up and the trash. There was moments I even detached myself from my iPhone. Of course, come Sunday night, I got on the ball and took on responsibility again. I think we all need to remember sometimes it's nice just to be vegetative. Doing something we want to do instead of something we have to do can be a nice change of pace.
