I took today off.
I can't remember the last time I took a day off for no particular reason - no guests, no travel plans, just a day spent at home. Sure, I've been unemployed, but that's not the same thing.
It was a beautiful, sunny day. Since it's Monday (BodyPump day), I looked for classes earlier than my usual 5:30 class. (Let's face it, if I had waited, there was no way I would have made it.) I'd expected there to be a 9:30 class, but they appear to have moved to 10:30.
Before the class, I loaded up the car with various clothes & household objects to give away. I dropped off the old computer at BestBuy for recycling, then went to the gym.
After the gym, I dragged Wanda along to drop off the rest of the stuff, then we went for lunch.
Lunch was good, but I may never eat again. It's five hours later and I'm still full.
This afternoon was a mixture of lying outside reading a book, taking a nap, and playing wii. It was lovely.
I even got motivated to do some gardening this evening, which resulted in the discovery that I'm allergic to more than one type of evergreen in my yard. Somehow, my hands reacted even though I was wearing gardening gloves the whole time. Luckily, thoroughly washing my hands and arms with soap and water stops the reaction.
Still, it was a really nice day ... even if I have to go back to work tomorrow.
