I get up with hubby at 4:30 am and make him breakfast and his lunch and see him off to work. A friend asked me why I do that every morning, and I said its because he works and I don't. She said what do you mean you don't work, most days you work harder than he does. I guess that is true because he even says that when I tell him about my day. But I know he works long hours and he does not have the luxury to just say OK today I am doing nothing.
Like I did today .
Today I got up and it was cold and rainy so I couldn't work outside or in the garage. So I thought ok what should I do. There are a million things I could have done, start packing and organizing for our move. Go shop for future projects or buy supplies. Or I could do some housework or laundry. None of those ideas appealed to me today.
So I thought what the hell I am taking a day off. I put on my comfy clothes and put on a movie. Yes I watched a chick flick, you have to watch "This is 40" I loved it. And I ate a bowl of ice cream and laid on the couch and did nothing. Maggie dumped all of her toys out all over the living room and played and we both had a day off.
After the movie, the rain had stopped so Maggie and I went for a walk and listened to the birds chirp and we fed the ducks and we sat by the river
it was so peaceful and so relaxing I could have stayed there all day
And then we came back to the house and I wrote this post.
Maggie is sleeping at my feet and you know what that is a great idea
When was the last time I had a nap in the middle of the day
After all it is my day off and I can spend it anyway I want
When was the last time you took a day off and rested
I mean really rested, did nothing all day
Maybe its time
OK I am going to go have a nap now
like this tired little guy
I know I deserved it and so do you
and my lil side kick Maggie
