There is something beautiful about waking up on a Monday morning and not having to get up and go to work–though these days “go to work” really means changing rooms in my house. I am off for this week and won’t have to log into work until the new year.
Oddly enough, I woke up early this morning and almost convinced myself to get up and make something of the day. I was able to shut off that foolish inner monologue and get another hour of sleep. If you read my stamp blog, you’ll know that I was awake late last night and really had a good reason for staying in bed.
Despite a late start, I got a few things off the “to do” list and I am feeling pretty good. I reorganized all my teaching books so they are finally off the floor. I also made the bookcase safer–it won’t tip over now. The recycling mess from Christmas is sorted and out for collection along with the non-recycling. The dishes are done. I even managed to do a little decluttering–not Mari Kondo decluttering, but still much better than before. Most importantly Zwift is installed on all my devices.
Just as I type this, I realize that this blog is mostly written. Other blogs have been read and responded to. I should probably start on my resolutions…but I think I will save that for tomorrow.
Taking it all into consideration, I still think getting a chance to wake up at a pace of my choosing was Today’s Perfect Moment.
