"Me" Day

December 16, 2011

Everyone needs a "Me" day every now and again. I decided that with everything going on and my inability to shut my brain off (that I posted about yesterday) that I should take a personal day off from work and use the day in whatever way I wanted. Typically on my days off, even holidays that I am home, I dont sit around. Not only am I a "fixer" but I am also a "do-er." Well... most of the time.

Yes, laundry needed to get done, there were dishes in the sink, both bathrooms needed to be cleaned and the whole house could use a good cleaning, but not today. Today was for me. I got up, went to the gym at my usual time (which most people think I am crazy for doing on days I have off). I got to actually enjoy a cup of tea while watching a show I had on the DVR... than I was off.

Took a ride to my parents house, than to visit my brother. It was nice, no pressure, no schedule, no running around. Had a nice visit than headed out. I had some other errands (but not real crucial ones) to take care of on my way home and did my best not to stress myself out. I really didnt want to wind up exhausted at the end of the day, its going to be a long weekend.

It was nice. Like I said, we all need to take some time for ourselves sometime. Shut your head off, do what you like to do and what you WANT to do... not necessarily what you HAVE to do. Its a good recharge. With everything that goes on during this "joyous" holiday season (not so much)... we all deserve it.
