Hey gang! I have been so, so, SO busy for so long that taking today off to relax feels like playing hooky. I am not- I promise. I am planning on a long day Friday as I travel to another store to observe their inventory and then I am opening the store on Saturday for an Open House for prospective students so even though I took off today, I am still at about......47 hours this week. The problem is that for the last three months I have been working so much that taking a day in the middle of the week is almost illicit. There's been so much going on (and will continue to be until May 15th) that it's been overwhelming. Even when I wasn't working my brain has been going in the background working on that next thing. I almost feel like I haven't been able to breath- and today is that first full-lung breath.
So what to do today? First instinct is to stay in my jammies all day and binge on the DVR and just vegetate but I do have one or two errands to do that would negate that a bit. Not rough errands- I need to drop Jim's suit off at the dry cleaner so it's ready for my sister's wedding and *maybe* run to Meijer to pick up some fruits and veggies. Because we haven't had many meals together lately I offered to cook for Jim tonight. He was in the mood for burgers. Let's be honest- I make decent burgers but I cook other things much better, so I offered to run to Five Guys if I am out since that's his favorite. Then he can have a burger, a bacon dog and REALLY good fresh fries ready when he walks in the door at 3:45 and will have time to rest before heading to Lowes for his evening shift without me banging around cleaning up the dishes and such.
The second inclination is to do a home-spa "day". I have a lot of things like mud masks and nail polish, bubble bath, facial scrubs and such. I can pick up a few more things at Meijer and spend the evening taking care of my outside. I have music, recorded meditations, my favorite Blueberry Matcha, yoga OnDemand, candles and, of course, a puppy to snuggle to nourish my insides. A few hours of peace sounds really, really good.
Either way, I can take off my comfy pajamas, toss them in the laundry before I head out, transfer it when I get back and when I am done with my ministrations or just dinner, put on warm pajamas- there's nothing better than warm, just-out-of-the-dryer jammies. It's like slipping on a hug and who can't use a hug?
Well- I think I am going to finish the show I am watching and then change. Timing will be everything in making sure I get home in time for dinner with the hubby without being too early or too late. I am so ready to win the Powerball and retire so I can enjoy days like this at my leisure!
Have a lovely, lovely day!
