Everyone Just Needs To Take A Day Off

I'm a strong believer in the fact that every now and then everyone needs a day off.  For no reason other then to relax.  Give yourself a break from the daily grind.  That's exactly what we did today.

We slept in until 9:30 then got up and showered.  Afterwards we decided to go to the Cox Communications store to pick up a new remote control (ours has been acting up for a few weeks).  On the way home we stopped off at Albertson's for a few items.  Hubs saw that ribs were pretty inexpensive, so we picked some up to make for dinner.

Once we got home we both had the energy to actually clean and cook.  We're usually tired and ready to relax once we get home from work.  But I was able to vacuum and finally take down the Christmas decorations (finally!).  I set up our new kitchen table, which I love!  It's just so simple, and the perfect size for us.

I was also able to set out a sign that my brother and sister-in-law bought us for Christmas and clean up all the papers, books and boxes for moving that we taking over our sofa table.  We were starting to look like the beginning stages of a hoarder.  And nobody wants that!

The sign says says: "Shafer" and under that "Established in 2009".

The Hubs spent all afternoon boiling and cooking the ribs we bought from Albertson's.  He even made his own BBQ sauce.  He put his heart into those!  (You'll get to see our dinner in my Wordless Wednesday post tomorrow).  He also emptied the trash, and there was a lot of it.  I've been cleaning out the house and getting rid of stuff we just don't need. 

Once all the cooking and cleaning was finished we were able to sit down, relax and just enjoy eachothers company.  This is the highlight of my day.  I think everyone deserves to take a day off and just relax.
