I am having a LOVELY "Family Day" all by my lonesome today. It is just the extra day off work I needed to recharge! I did go and visit with my family Saturday night, stayed over at my parents house even, but today? The day was all mine!
I wanted to sleep in, but lately that hasn't been working out for me. Not really sure where these sleep issues came from, but I've been having a tough time sleeping peacefully and definitely can't sleep in once the weekend rolls around! Ugh. Oh well.
Even though I couldn't "sleep in", I did get to lounge around in bed for a good chunk of the morning, reading. I then made some breakfast, and spent the next few hours indulging in my latest book. I just got the newest Sophie Kinsella novel, entitled "I've Got Your Number", and whenever I get a new Sophie Kinsella in my hands I cannot stop reading until it's done. This one did not disappoint! By mid-afternoon today, I had finished the whole book! I always get a "book hangover" from her novels, and definitely I'm a little groggy after all that reading, but it was just what I needed. I've been in a reading slump, so this was just the right book to get me back into it.
I then showered leisurely, and puttered around doing some cleaning I needed to get done. Felt good to sort through some little piles of clutter that were driving me nuts!
I know I could be doing some work for school, but frankly... I am just enjoying my break instead! It's just a nice, relaxing type of day. Now I'm just waiting for Mr. Lock to be done work for the day, as we're going to go out to a restaurant for dinner and catch a movie!
Got to love having a "me" day!
