I think I’m going to come to really appreciate and welcome these days off now that I’m working. My days off are mine to do with as I please. I can be as productive or unproductive as I please. I can stay in bed extra long and persuade Alea to do the same. I can snuggle my mornings away with her, eat lunch whenever I please and maybe even get in an extra bathroom break or two.
This is my first and only day off until Monday this week. Uffda is all I have to say. I know nursing exactly where I want to be and what I want to do, but sometimes not even that makes these long days and early mornings any easier. It takes me a good couple of weeks to get used to change in my life. I’m horrible with change.
And working 64 hours ever two weeks is a really big change for me. Not to mention the fact that Miss Alea started daycare this week– that’s a huge change in and of itself. She’s went two days already and is adjusting fabulously… of course. How did I get so lucky to have such a go-with-the-flow, easy to adjust little girl? I know she certainly didn’t get those qualities from me!
Today is all about rest + relaxation. I may take some time and cross some things off of my to do list, but besides that I’m all about spending every possible second I can soaking up my sweet little Alea, leisurely sipping my coffee (rather than chugging it for survival), and wearing fuzzy slippers and yoga pants.
Hey day off– you’re pure bliss. Come around more often, will ya?
