I realized today, as I lay on the bed watching a marathon of The Missing, that my weekend groove is really different from my weekday groove. I am pretty slow moving on the weekends. We sleep in and I usually fix a big breakfast, and then we goof around -- movies, or play games, or just hang around doing nothing. Sometimes, I even fall asleep and take a nap.
My week days are kind of crazy. I go to the gym around 4 in the morning, and from then on, it is pretty nonstop. Mondays and Tuesdays I coach Leadership after school, and Wednesdays The Girl and I volunteer at the cat shelter (lately, its been the Girl and the Nana), Thursdays I've got my online graduate school class. Fridays, I'm always really excited about the weekend, but I generally fall asleep around 8 p.m.
I'm not complaining. I like pretty much everything I do -- except dusting -- I really don't like that so much. I am fortunate to be healthy enough to manage all the different things that I am lucky enough to be involved in. I guess it is good that my weekend has such a different groove. If it was as nonstop as the week, it would probably be too much. I'm pretty excited that this week, we don't have school on Friday, which means I will add an extra day of rest to my schedule. I might even go to the gym later than 4 a.m. that day.
I hope you take time to rest now and again. If you are running everywhere 24/7, you will get too worn out. It is good to sit on the couch or lay in bed, and see what Netflix has to offer, or to loose yourself completely in a book that isn't for a class or for your job. It's a concept that goes all the way back to ancient times: On the 7th day He rested. You can't argue with that.
Wishing you a blissful night's sleep,
