Why do you whine like you’re running out of time? #sol17

Although I did everything I planned to today, I feel like this day just got away from me.

Since today is the last day of break (weekends are for prep…and the grading I didn’t finish), I didn’t force myself to get out of bed for 9 a.m. gym. This turned out to be a mistake. The 10 o’clock class had a sub, and the class was nothing like I was expecting or wanting. The sub’s pacing was all wrong, and she kept talking to the class like we didn’t understand what was going on. (This may be because she’s a regular aerobics teacher and not a water aerobics teacher. But I could be wrong.) It was very bizarre.

I tried to get my mind right and relax into it, but I just could not get with it, so I wound up leaving after about fifteen minutes. Then, I realized I could make it to 11 o’clock yoga so went home, changed my clothes, and then headed to the other gym for yoga. Which was fine, but threw my schedule off.

Everything after that went pretty much as planned, but I didn’t get any significant couch time in until after 4 p.m., which is just not right for this, my last Friday before it’s back to the grind.

    Loved the play on words with the Hamilton song –and the connection to yesterdays post. All clever…. I think sometimes the best are the ones that we have no vision or expectations for — when I plan to relax, it never seems to work. Thanks for the smile.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who procrastinates getting out of bed! I feel for you and hope the last day or two of break brings you the peace and balance you were seeking!
