By popular request, I am following up on my stop day. It’s almost over and was pretty successful. I did spend most of the day doing pretty much nothing. It was nice not having to be anywhere at any certain time. My sidekick and I spent quite a few hours on the couch watching TV. After a few hours of channel surfing, I decided it might be best to finish watching last season’s shows before the new season starts. Then I went to the grocery store which is really nice when you are not in a rush. Stopped at Central Market (which I love) and bought myself some sunflowers (my favorite). Then returned home for more TV, internet shopping (bought my alumni shirt) and a nap (which I never do!).
I do admit, it was hard settling into doing a day of nothing. And there were a few times I thought about work or the things around the house that needed to be done. Every time I felt anxiety about what I wasn’t doing, I made myself remember that it is just as important for me to do nothing as it is to do something. This nothing was for me. I earned it and I shouldn’t let anyone (even myself) spoil it. With that said, I have a few more hours of nothing to do. See you tomorrow.
