Thursday was a total day of freedom for me. No school, no work, no obligations. Ah…the first day of break. I will admit that I woke up early though. 4:50am to be exact.

I didn’t mean to wake up so early but I had a dream that woke me up (this happens constantly, ugh) so I got up and decided to go to a new spinning class at 5:45 and it kicked my butt. I had sweat on my stomach after the class… is that possible? Weird.

After I got home from spinning I walked in circles for about 2 hours.

I didn’t know what to do with myself. I didn’t have school work or studying to do so I went to blog, but I didn’t feel like it. I decided to read blogs.. but I didn’t feel like it. I walked Lola and it was cold. Brrrrrrr.

After walking Lola I walked in circles again. I didn’t even want to read. I just sat down and had lunch. Then I decided to surprise Jimmy. Since we live an hour away from each other, it is hard to hang out a lot-I was excited to go see him.

I texted his dad and told him I was going to be at their house when they came home from work. I also said I was making dinner. STUFFED CABBAGE! So I headed to the store and picked up rice, tomato sauce, cabbage, and ground beef. Then I drove an hour to Jimmy’s house and started cooking until 4:00pm when he got home from work.

Cabbage to boil ^

Rice mixed with eggs and onion. (and ground beef after!)

All set up to stuff the cabbage^


Ready to be topped with tomato sauce and baked!

Yay Jimmy is home and ready to eat

After dinner Jimmy and I went Christmas shopping and I drove an hour home and was tired! 

It was a relaxing day and I’m still getting used to not having school work. I keep feeling guilty for not doing school work, but I’m quickly getting used to it 😉 I should be getting my final grades back soon… maybe i’ll share!


Have a great Saturday!


  1. I know what you mean! I struggle with relaxing and often feel guilty for doing so since I’m not being productive. I always try to convince myself that I AM being productive by giving my body the rest that it needs to do all of the things I do.

    Aw, that was so sweet of you to surprise Jimmy’s family! I bet they loved it! You are such a good girlfriend! I didn’t realize you guys lived an hour away from each other–yikes! Andy and I lived that far away once and it made hanging out difficult–especially when we had to make a long drive home at night!

  2. I agree- it is so hard to relax and feel like you should be doing something! But it sounds like you had a great day with Jimmy and cooking the stuffed cabbage. I’ve heard of stuffing green peppers like that but never cabbage, seems pretty cool. Plus it’s great you got to spend time with him, I know I used to live an hour away from Clay for awhile and I’d spend one night a week with him, but it’s hard only seeing someone once a week, especially with the crazy Christmas traffic too!

    I can’t wait to go back to spinning class. I can work out next week but not as hard, I think spinning *should* be okay.

    Hope you have a good weekend!

  3. Mmmm golabki. I’m polish so stuffed cabbage is one of my favs.

    I totally understand about not knowing what to do with yourself, but I kind of love it right now.

  4. Yep, I’m struggling with the transition as well. I wouldn’t say I feel guilty, but I having to direct my thoughts and actions to something other than school is a real adjustment! It’s like I don’t know where to send them to. Silliness! We will figure out how to be!
