With my new work schedule, this weekend was my first two day weekend,
and let me tell you.. It was bliss.
What a difference it makes to have two days off instead of one! For the past six months, Sundays have been my day of "rest" [my only day off], and subconsciously, my day of stress. I think I felt that since it was my only free day, I had to jam-pack it with something big, like traveling to a new place or going to a far away beach, etc. etc. Of course this was a good thing, but it made the day and weekend speed by so fast, leaving no time for the peace & quiet.
With my weekend essentially doubling, Sundays are finally going to be a day of rest/relaxation - exactly what Sundays are made for. Yesterday we didn't do anything crazy - we spent the entire day at boyfriend's parents house. We sat in the hot tub, I read gossip magazines while watching Chelsea Lately, and we ate too much Papa John's delivery for dinner [they really get you on the "specials"!]..
These types of days can do wonders. Two different people told me today that I seemed more relaxed and rested than normal. So, cheers to my new favorite day of the week!
