So sure, there are about a billion other things that need doing, but the strain of everything caught up to me enough that having the house to myself and the final arrival of a rainy day made for the best excuse to just have a lazy day. I finally got to check one of many books off of my currently reading list after sleeping in, dutifully ignoring all the chores, errands, and other work that I can see to tomorrow. I sipped hot drinks, ate comfort snacks, and cuddled up with the cat as I listened to the light rain tapping on the windows and sank into the sweet luxury of allowing myself to have a day to just do nothing. Because sometimes you need to just take a day off from life, at least as much as you can, to recharge and feel a little more like yourself again. Read, watch tv, maybe jot a few things in a journal, but only if you feel like it. Whatever feels right, even if it’s doing nothing at all. The prefect lazy day!
