I took one yesterday...and I highly recommend it.
Yesterday morning wasn't going swimmingly....
Dropped off the girls, and planned on heading to two classes at the gym.
Got a call en route,
and had to head home and do a few things.
Got to the gym,
went to my locker....and realized I forgot my sneakers.
Back to the car, -11 outside.
picked up the sneakers,
missed the class,
went to the gym,
and realized I needed a mental vacation.
I worked out longer than normal.
Even read a silly book while on a bike.
Sat in the steam room for a long time.
Headed to my favorite mall.
Wandered a bit, picked up a few things at VS...
Little known fact- my first job was a clerk at a local lingerie store
I was 16
....loads of stories for another day
Poured over books and magazines at Borders,
Listened to "Lenka" on Pandora (trust me, best station ever),
Sketched three new birds,
Dreamed a little,
Came home just in time to pick up the girls.
It was a lovely day.
My batteries are recharged.
I so needed a personal day.
Today I will play catch up...
5 loads of laundry,
3 bathrooms to clean,
Floors to mop.
Meals to plan.
Shopping to be done.
Tutoring to plan.
Freezing again (-19 this morning)...
It was worth it.
I'm putting another one on the calendar right now....
