Aside from being thrown off by the hour change due to daylight savings, today was a pretty relaxed day. After waking in the middle of the night for a drink of water, then waking in the morning thinking it was later than it actualy was, I couldn’t get myself back to sleep. I got out of bed to get the little ones bathed, made cinnamon pancakes for the children, then finally had time to get myself together.
I usually start with hair, face then wardrobe, usually keeping is simple but put together. This time, I just wanted to be comfortable. I donned a pair of yoga pants, although I had no intentions of doing yoga (is that bad?) a long sleeved black t-shirt, and after I settled down on the sofa to watch football with my hubby, a little chill settled in somewhat, so I had my pink and white striped Martha’s Vineyard hoodie nearby to keep cozy.
I admit I didn’t feel my usual self. I’m always about positive presentation especially because I work with other people’s appearances on a regular basis. But what made me feel good was my hubby loving me just the way I was: comfortable and natural. He wanted me to take a break for once and although I find it challenging in my multi-tasking mind to not do anything productive, I did appreciate his care and concern, and even more, our time together as a family.
I laughed myself to tears watching my husband and middle son trying an XBox Dance Central demo. Then I got in on it myself and did better than them both, even without the practice tutorials they were trying! 😉 It was all in fun.
I look forward to more days when I take time to lounge, in moderation of course.
How do you spend your days off?
