Lazy Sundays

A long time ago Kurt and I had a Sunday tradition. We would get up in time to make it to McDonald's, get ourselves mcgriddles and then head to Staples. This was a great tradition for us way back when. It had a couple of downsides. First the money and calories that type of breakfast brings and second if you are at Staples weekly you are spending at Staples weekly.

Fast forward a few years and Sundays became the lazy day to sleep in and lay around the house all day. We would watch a season of a show or have movie marathons. Doing nothing productive and loving every minute.

Present day Sundays now look quite a bit different. And yesterdays was bit rougher that usual. The week was more hectic than usual. Aili had a cough and we went on a last minute overnight trip with the girls. So we let the house slide big time. So we decided Sunday was the catch up day. When you wake up knowing that you are going to spend most of the day cleaning well ugh. Plus I am working on my third week of the month which just makes things more interesting. Well after much grumbling and picking on each other Kurt and I finally got over our grumpiness. In the mean time we found our first geocache.

It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be! We had Kurt's phone the the gps and got to our coordinates. The one we found was about a mile from our house and very tiny. It was the kind where you just write the date and your name. I am excited to find the kind where you put something in and take something out. Plus there is letterboxing where you stamp their book. I have been getting lost on the internets looking at how many of both are in our area. I can't wait to turn this into our new sunday tradition.

Ever have one of those days?

Or weeks even? Let me sum it up for you, I made it half way through the day with my shirt on inside-out and backwards.

Hey I was still able to laugh at myself so it can't be that bad, right?
