ding dong

Weekends are always busy.  Most Saturdays we’re up and out early for work, sports, events, activities, etc.  When there is a Saturday that we don’t have to be somewhere I may act a little lazy.   I still get up early, I do work from my couch, I clean, I’ll play with kiddo…but I’ll stay in my pj’s a little longer than normal.   Yesterday was a total full on lazy day.   I did a ton of work (in my pj’s) then started straightening up in the kitchen and dining room.   When I was cleaning the kitchen floor I heard the dreaded,


I hate hearing the doorbell on a Saturday.

I hate hearing the doorbell on a Saturday when I’m in my pajamas.

I hate hearing the doorbell on a Saturday when I’m in my pajamas and it’s after 1pm.

Because the kid screamed “DOORBELL,”  I couldn’t pretend that I didn’t hear it (I‘ve done that before.)  So I was forced to look like a total bum and answer it in my pj’s.   It was just  someone in the neighborhood with information on an event, but I still felt scummy.

if I actually looked like this in my pajamas I probably wouldn’t be so embarrassed to answer the door

When I tweeted that I had just been caught by an unannounced visitor as a late in the day pj offender I was relieved to find that I’m not the only one who isn’t a fan of the doorbell on Saturdays.   I was even more relieved to discover that I’m not the only one who has ignored a doorbell before.   Evil smiles.

Time for a total topic change.   I feel like I’ve lived at Target this week.   Between needing stuff and hitting their clearance (yes I’ll get jeans for the kid and I for $10) I’ve been all up in the land of addictive shopping.   I always wander through the  accessories department before I head to the checkout and couldn’t believe what I saw:

FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS!  For sale.   Like $4.99 a piece!   I used to be able to bust out 5 or 10 friendship bracelets a day when I was younger.   I wonder if I could set up shop from the back of my truck in a Target parking lot and sell these for $3 a piece?   I have friendship bracelet-makin’ skills.   Can’t believe stores are selling them.  It’s as if the 90’s are for sale – again.
