Gotta love productive days!

Can I offer a piece of advice to all you single ladies? Do not re-sign up for and then watch The Craigslist Killer later that day. Not a good idea. Just not good.

I realize I am not advertising sexual favors via Craigslist that ultimately attract psychos that will want to kill me, but it still had me all kinds of freaked out.

Ugh, but back to the obvious. Yes. I joined Match again. I honestly don't know why I put myself through this. It's mainly for my mother. This way when she asks if I am seeing anyone I can say I am trying. I really am. ;)

I'm actually quite content and very happy with where my life is going right now, so I figure if I do at least a little work it will all fall together. Great plan, right? I thought so.

Today was an awesome, productive day. One of those days where everything just fell together and a ton of errands got accomplished. I started the day with a trip downtown to turn in my stuff for my subbing license, get my fingerprints and background check started. Now, I am just waiting on my transcripts from ISU. (come one ISU, what's the dealio?!)

After that was squared away (clean record, quick trip) my sister and I grabbed some sushi for lunch at my favorite sushi place downtown, Miyabi 9. Seriously, in love with that place.

Then, we picked up one of my textbooks. The only book that was cheaper at the University Bookstore rather than online. Then we hit the mall. I've been meaning to hit up the semi-annual sale at Victoria's Secret for quite awhile so I stocked up. I really needed some new unmentionables.

Then, we headed about 20 minutes west of Des Moines to my grandmother's house to drop of five pairs of my dress pants that needed hemmed. You see, I am not short enough to require the "short" length, but I am not tall enough to handle the "regular" length so I have to have all my pants tailored. Literally, all of them. I hate it, but if I don't do it I will never wear the pants.

So, that was my day. Productive, yet fun and very relaxing. I love days like this.

What do you tend to do on your days off? Do you save all your errands for your day off or would you rather have a day with absolutely nothing on the to-do list?

Good for you for getting lots accomplished! I tend to run errands on my lunch hours because I absolutely love having days where I don't have to do anything.

I like to mix and match my days off :) Sometimes I like to have days where I do absolutely nothing and just laze around and other times I like to try and be super productive!

I like to get everything done as soon as I get up on my days off (which are rare!) and then having the rest of the day to veg and do nothing! That way I don't feel guilty for sitting on the couch and watching TV all afternoon!

Good luck w/ match!! My friends keep encouraging me to get back into the pnline dating world, but I just can't do it... At least not yet. Maybe by this summer I will be ready to date again?

On my days off, I like a mix of being productive + relaxing/reading books/watching movies. I love runnings errands on the week days when it's quiet at places like Target and the grocery store, though!!

I had zero luck with match when I did it for a month. All creep shows in my neck of the woods.

I am reading The Help now. So good!

You are brave signing up again! I can't wait to hear about the stories that come from it :)

I love days when I can get things crossed off my list!! Don't feel too bad about it, I'm short too and have to have all the "short" pants hemmed as well.
