Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Make Bread and Binge Watch TV Shows!

Happy Saturday! I have big plans today, to do NOTHING!!! Last Saturday I ran a million errands and was extremely productive (took my car in, got a flu shot, went to the library, and brought in a strap to a shoe repair place). This Saturday I did our morning watchalong then drove over to pick up the strap at the shoe repair place and now I am DONE.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Show Off Albie Dog’s Halloween Costume to a Series of Friends

Happy Saturday! I have such a busy day planned! I “casually” reached out to a bunch of friends who all leave near each other suggesting a walk, but secretly just wanting them to see Albie Dog in his Halloween costume and tell me that my dog is the best dog. Albie doesn’t know it, but he’s going to spend most of the morning looking like a little flower.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Get An Elliptical Delivered!

Happy Saturday! I feel like such a cliche, because everyone is doing this, but I bought myself a home gym equipment thing. Laying around with my foot up for a month really made me want to be more active, and we are heading into winter in Chicago when being active outside will be harder and harder. So I took the plunge and bought myself an elliptical, which is supposed to be delivered at some point in a 4 hour window, and I am going to force the nice delivery man to carry it up 3 flights of stairs for me.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Watch Sadak 2 and Read Books

Happy Saturday! I am up at the Lake House again for a long stretch to end out the year. Of course I still have my stupid foot, so I can’t go swimming or on boats. But I can sit on the porch and read a book, so I’ll be doing a lot of that instead of responding to blog comments. Oh, and finishing/reviewing Sadak 2, I’m watching it on my phone

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Try Not to Go Yellow Wallpaper Crazy!

Happy Saturday! I had a bit of a meltdown last night. This will no doubt surprise you (as it did me!) but spending two weeks trapped in bed in a small room will eventually drive you insane. I was thinking it would be fun times and being waited on hand and foot and watching as much TV as I want, and it is that, but it is also a wee bit insanity inducing. Who knew! Anyway, Wednesday I see the doctor again and he said that maybe, if I was very very good, he would have new rules for me beyond “lie perfectly still with your foot in the air all day every day”.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Figure Out My Life

Happy Saturday! I am back in my apartment for the first time in two and a half weeks, trying to figure out what I want to do with it. The answer could very well be “nothing”, but it does feel like I should be doing SOMETHING so long as I am staying at my parents most of the time. Like at the very least reorganize my books since I won’t care about having piles of them everywhere.
