TGIS! Everyone always harps on about the beauty of Friday, but this has been one of those weeks that I've been jonesing for a day off. There are those weeks when I feel like I could pop out another day at school, and others where Monday already feels like a Friday. This week, unfortunately, was more of the latter.
That's life in the big city, huh?
Hopefully your week wasn't as hectic as mine; yet whether it was or wasn't, I'm not all about comparing who is worse off and trying to outdo you in my pitifulness. Pity parties aren't fun for anyone.
At least it is the weekend!! Time for a little extra sleep, a little Tennessee football (THIS IS THE YEAR, VOLS, TO BEAT THEM GATORS!), and some QT with one of my favorite people in the world- MY MOM! She's flown from Tennessee to hang out with me and help with a few projects around the house. She seriously is the best and just what the doctor ordered after a bananas in pajamas week.
This weekend, I hope you can make a little extra time for some activity- a walk, a bike ride, a trip to the gym. You deserve it, your body deserves it, and your health deserves it. I know we are all busy, but scheduling time for yourself to do something for your health will end up providing you with my time and energy to share with others in the future. Paradoxical but true.
