Driving home from my third appointment of today, I pondered my schedule for tomorrow. I couldn’t remember anything on the agenda ― other than running, which I’ve been doing every day lately.
When I got to a stopping point, I checked my calendar on my phone. It was true. Not one appointment, interview, deadline or to-do.
A free day.
Considering that I’m not working a regular job at the moment, you’d think that those would crop up more often. But they don’t.
I think it’s time for what my daughter declared yesterday to be for her ― a pajama day. After I do my run, I’m going to shower, then get back into pajamas for most of the rest of the day.
I told Katie, and her face lit up. “There are so many things we can do!”
Yes, there are.
We can read, take relaxing baths, do each other’s nails. Make Shrinky-Dinks, watch a movie, go roller blading (her, not me!). We can play a game, organize her new jewelry box, go for a walk. Endless possibilities!
There are many things I’m good at, but relaxing isn’t one of them, I admit. It’s something I’m trying to get better at.
And tomorrow I get a chance to practice.
