I have been trying really hard lately to give myself at least one day of relaxation. A day where I’m not thinking about my to-do list, answering emails, errands. None of it.
This is actually really hard for me since I’m an extreme workaholic. I like to be busy and I’m not content unless my hair is falling out from stress.
I didn’t say it was a healthy lifestyle!
Nevertheless, I prevailed and for the second Sunday in a row, I have taken some time to really enjoy life.
That being said, I totally did some work today but my main focus was on relaxing and having a good time.
First and foremost, I took myself to go see Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2.
Normally you couldn’t pay me to go to a movie on opening weekend but with the internet the way it is, this movie was going to get ruined if I waited too long. People were already posting stuff on Facebook so I didn’t want to wait too long.
I opted for a matinee showing. Honestly, this is the only way I will see a movie.
I love it.
The earlier the better.
There was probably a total of fifteen people in the entire theatre. This is my favorite because the likelihood of anyone annoying the crap out of me is low.
As for the movie I really enjoyed it. Obviously Baby Groot is my most favorite thing in the entire world. He managed to be adorable and break my heart.
I need a Baby Groot.
I did something today I feel like it’s been years since I’ve done. I sat on my back porch and read a book.
How sad is that?
I have fallen off the reading wagon despite the fact that I am CONSTANTLY buying new books. I’m a book hoarder.
I’m currently reading Joey Graceffa’s book “In Real Life: My Journey to a Pixelated World.” I’m actually not familiar with Joey’s work at all as a YouTuber but his book was recommended to me so I’m giving it a go.
My favorite thing about today was actually building a Lego set! It went along with my Guardians theme for the day!
I bought this Lego set well over a month ago as an incentive gift to myself. I promised myself I could build it once I finished my book “Cyberbullying: Perpetrators, Bystanders and Victims”. That wasn’t enough so I then had to complete my taxes (I am notorious for waiting until the last minute to get them done).
Then it came about finding the time to build a Lego set.
Today was that day!
It took me about an hour to build and it was a fun distraction. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it now but it’s done!
I ended up buying another Guardians Lego Set today as well because I was annoyed the one I made today didn’t have Rocket in it. I’m going to save building this one for another day.
I really wish I had something more interesting to report. It’s been a super crazy, stressful week so I’m excited I survived this far.
Here’s a picture of Guinness helping me build my Lego set.

I loved this! Having 3 kids between the ages of 1.5 and 5 years old, I get to build Lego a lot, and it’s definitely a fun distraction, almost as much fun as doing a puzzle.
FYI… I might know someone who can make you a baby Groot… 😉 (I have one on my list of things to crochet – my brother in law wants one for his birthday…)
It was certainly a lot of fun and I can’t wait to build another big set!
A Baby Groot you say?! I do have a birthday coming up!

Lego is awesome and always will be (unless you step on them of course)
That is a pain I only wish upon my worst enemies!
