So today, I did just that!
I had no agenda. I thought it might be nice to catch up on some things for my grad classes and finish my lesson plans for the week, but I also agreed with myself that if I didn't complete all of those things today, I would be ok with that because, after all, it is a "me" day. And that means relaxing. And not having unrealistic expectations. And enjoying doing things that I would not normally do on a school day.
How did I use my first "me" day of the year?
I slept in.
I read my Bible and talked to God.
I made coffee, and a for real breakfast - omelette with cheese and green peppers!
I called my mom in Germany and talked to her for almost an hour.
I sent a long e-mail to my Granny and received one back. Oh how I love talking with her - in person especially, but in writing when we can't be together!
I drove to a nearby town to get a haircut, browse in a clothing store (where I used self-control and realized I didn't really need anything right now, anyway, but it was just nice to have time to look...lol)
And....of course I went to Panera, where I am sitting and enjoying my "Pick 2 Lunch" some music, a Diet Pepsi, and some time to blog and read others' blogs.
Here's a picture of the (not so) new haircut...(I'm pretty boring, and I get the same thing every time, but I like it that my hair stylist knows just how I like it, and it always feels so good to get that extra length/soon-to-be mullet taken off! haha)
Today I'm thankful for good friends, time for fun, new experiences, and a "me" day! :)
