Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
How’s the weekend been treatin’ ya thus far? Good? Good! Truth be told, I’ve barely even realized that it’s the weekend… probably because I’ve spent most of it either working or running errands. Womp, womp.Buuuuuut I’ve been trying to get ahead on a few things so that I don’t fall behind when I leave for Whistler at the end of the week, so at least there’s that to look forward to.
You know what I miss? The days where weekends actually meant something — something other than “finally” getting a chance to go grocery shopping or doing those 2 loads of laundry that you’ve been putting off all week. The days where you’d wake up early just to catch the good cartoons on TV and sit on the couch in your PJs eating sugary cereal until noon. This grown-up stuff is for the birds. And these links are for you 😛
