As far as days off go I'd have to say that the one I had today was just about perfect. After a slightly painful medical test in the morning and my weekly allergy shots I had the rest of the day to myself. It turns out a day with not much to do was just what I needed.
Going out to lunch always makes me happy. As a teacher it's a treat to be able to sit for an hour or so and enjoy a meal prepared by someone else. Today's meal of fish tacos was fabulous on its own- throw in a midday beer and a few laughs with a friend and wow what a treat it was.
After lunch I spent about an hour strolling up and down the aisles of Target as I looked for nothing in particular. By the time I had checked out, to the tune of about $150, I had six bags of everything I was sure I needed. There will be new purple towels in the bathroom, a bright blue ironing board cover and one well-organized desk.
Yes, lunch and a Target shopping spree. It's hard to imagine much more fun than that isn't it?
How about an afternoon nap? Yes, it was a darn good day.
