Wonder what a single girl does on a Saturday? Well, you’re in luck. I will walk you through this single girls Saturday, and demonstrate why being single is absolutely awesome.
Wake up and play with Landon, drink two huge glasses of water and begin to clean up; vacuum, dust, mop and make the bed.
Change into running gear and head to the park for 45 min-hour of pure reflection and endorphin build up.
After achieving glowing sweaty look, hop into car and drive to Whole Foods to pick up some lunch/dinner and my favorite snack, sliced oranges, kiwi, and strawberries. End up buying flowers too. I’m a sucker for flowers, hydrangeas are hard to say “no” to.
Get home and guess who?! Landon is there to greet me with unconditional love. By this time it’s almost noon and I take Landon out for a good run of his own outside. Afterwards I get in and fix him his lunch.
FInally, Shower time! I turn up the tunes and hop on in; Blurred Lines. I swear that Robin Thicke is singing about me here… I love you Robin, just want you to know.
Blow dry hair, legs shaved (not because I’m seeing someone but because I love having smooth legs when I wear my long grey bouncle sweater with my short shorts), and put my hair up with a series of bobby pins… who knew I could look like princess Leia? I make my way down to the kitchen and have my Lentil & Quinoa Tabouli with no oil and Tuna from Whole Foods. YUM!
Laundry TIme!! I love doing Laundry, seriously it’s my own little Tabula Rasa. As that goes on, I start to clean out the closet and get rid of a mountain of clothing that will go to Good Will.
Laundry Folded, and put away- BEST FEELING EVER.
Nap time- I come from a family that strongly believes in napping and reading in the afternoons.
Wake up and do some reading; The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements.
It is now close to 6pm and I decide that it’s time for my weekly beauty treatment; face mask, my daily teeth whitening treatment, and pedicure. Watching Knight and Day (love that Movie)… why can’t a guy come and rescue me?
After my regime is done, it’s Landon’s turn. Grooming time! He hates it. Sorry love, but it has to be done.
After all of that it’s 8 pm and I am now settled in with my dinner (same as lunch) and plop down for the Bing Bang Theory. Time to decompress, Everything is clean, and I am feeling accomplished.
I can’t help but feel happiness every Saturday. I love this routine, I love that time is mine to control and I get to do everything I like. I am not dating anyone, and I take the time to take care of myself. The point of bobby pins in my hair is because I love to see my hair all wavy, it’s all for me.
I hope your Saturdays are your own, and I hope that you smile every time you take on any activity or task. There are people out there who can’t do the little mundane things we do and think of us as ‘lucky’.
