By my rather loose estimate, I think I got about 10 hours sleep last night. Todd was up early (grins) and let me sleep in. I wish I’d gotten up to watch Meet The Press at 8am, but I’m glad I listened to my body and rested.
I got up and ended up down here, relaxing by the gas fireplace and Todd made me a lovely veggie omelette for breakfast. He feels better…. I feel better… The kids are happy and it’s peaceful this morning.
I could run around like a madwoman, doing laundry, cleaning, and all the things that should be on my to-do list, but I need to regroup a bit before I take the kids to Rachel’s, so I’ve decided to have some downtime. The sewing book is sitting next to me, just waiting for me to crack it. I think I’ll make a deal with myself –
1. get showered and dressed for the day
2. get kids dressed and pack the diaper bag for our trek
3. put in a load of laundry
4. head off…
When I get back, I’ll do a bit more laundry, clean the bathrooms and vacuum upstairs. That’s it. Then I’m going to do some reading and prepwork for tomorrow. The deal on that is if I get my things ready for tomorrow’s session with T.T., then I can spend my remaining “free” time reading my sewing materials. Fair, right?
It somehow doesn’t seem so bad when I put it that way.
Time for a shower and I have some legs that need shaving in a big, big way. Tomorrow is also first day of working out, besides being my first “official” day of tutoring. I guess I’m a glutton for punishment. Oh yeah – I also need to head out to our other campus for a meeting midday. That may not happen… we”ll see.
I like this day. Maybe being well-rested is truly the key. No fretting. No anxiety about things. Just taking it easy.
