What Ferris Bueller and I have in common


We took a day off; although my day was not quite as full as Ferris’s it was still a good day.

Fridays are my rest day in my training program and since this is my first week of training I decided to do it right and took a vacation day from work.  I did not get to sleep in; one of the cats woke me up at 6am because only one of the two food bowls was full.  How dare I let her starve to death!?  But the day was relaxing and I would venture to say even productive for a “rest” day.

Normally when I take vacation time I am doing something, I am actually going on vacation or maybe I have an appointment or I have something to do; today was just about being off for the day.

I made myself a nice breakfast, poked around online a bit, even played Candy Crush (don’t judge me), changed the bed sheets and did a little laundry.  Then, I took a nap, you know the cat woke me up at 6am on my day off, I was entitled to a nap.

The rest of the day I actually got out of the house and did stuff.  I bought some beautiful flowers to plant tomorrow, then went shopping and bought some cute new running clothes, and had dinner with my husband.  I ended the day with getting all my running gear ready for tomorrow morning, mapping out a new route for my run and finally sitting down to type this.

I do not usually share my mundane days with you, but today felt nice; and while it was not exciting it is important for all of us to remember that rest and time for ourselves is key to good mental and physical health.
