It’s National Relaxation Day…and I’m taking the day off!

When I was reviewing my calendar for August, I realized that it was going to be necessary for me to have a day with some free time, and I decided that today had to be the day.
Over the weekend, we went to an outdoor wedding (read: ridiculously hot), moved furniture at my dad’s house and went out for my birthday last night. Seriously, sometimes you just need a mental health day.
Funny coincidence that today also happens to be National Relaxation Day.
Now to be clear, this is not the same thing as having a day where I don’t adult. As much as I’d enjoy a day like that, I actually need to catch up on things today. Here’s what the schedule looks like:
7:30 Puppy Alarm Clock
Believe it or not, this is sleeping in for me, but I have two dogs. There’s no way they’ll allow me to stay in bed too late. Roscoe’s typically M.O. is to lick my ear to let me know he needs to go outside.
7:30 to 10:00 Coffee
Also, putzing around in my pajamas, working on this blog post and watering the garden. I really need a lot of time to hatch in the morning.
11:30-12:45 Make-Up Massage Lesson
I missed the July class since I was helping my parents with their yard sale and getting things ready for the open house; so, we scheduled a make-up anatomy and Chinese medicine lesson since my instructor had room in his schedule today.
1:30-3:30 Jujitsu Notebook
If you’ve read my August goals post, then you know that I’m woefully behind on updating my notebook for jujitsu, and this will stand in the way of my being eligible for my black belt exam if I don’t get it done. Having a few solid hours to work on it without interruptions is definitely needed.
4:00 to 6:00 TV time
It is my relaxation day so I do need at least one activity that is just for pleasure so I’m going to get caught up on Bachelor in Paradise; it’s a guilty pleasure. Though I have to admit, I’ll probably be doing laundry during the commercial breaks.
7:00 to 9:00 Jujitsu
I can’t afford to miss any classes with the exam only eight weeks away.
How would you spend a day off? Would you completely pamper yourself or use the time to get caught up on other life details.
