This morning was wonderful! After 2 1/2 weeks of working every. single. day, I finally had a break. I had a whole morning off with nothing else scheduled or planned. So, what did I do?
Well, I started the morning at 4:30 a.m. I woke up, got dressed, and was out for a run by 5:15. I was tired, getting up was hard, and the run was strenuous, but I felt good afterwards, and I was happy I'd done it. Then, I came home, had breakfast, showered, and...
...did absolutely nothing!
I watched Netflix, I read my book, and I ate a snack, but the entire time I stayed hidden in my bed with the dogs and cats around me. It was beautiful!
Honestly, I know I needed the physical rest dearly, but almost more than that I needed a chance to turn my brain off. I needed a time wear I didn't have to drive, talk to people, see people, think about people. I needed time to just be. If I'd had longer, I would have taken the dogs for a hike, but I think they appreciated the quiet snuggle time too.
It was a wonderful morning. I slept, I read, I decompressed. I laid there feeling the baby move (which is almost as weird to say as it is to feel). All in all, it's been a great day!
