A Day of Rest....

It certainly was a day of rest.

I opted for a nap after the kids went to school. Between the rain and my boy, my sleep had been interrupted. So I lay down and enjoyed a rainy-day rest.

My arms ache from karate. I have given up on the ability to brush the hair behind my right ear for the time being. I trust that one day I will regain that skill. I figured some rest - especially if I could do so with my arms tightly flexed - to stretch my triceps - would help.

By the time I woke, the rain had stopped. The dog and I headed out for a walk. It was at that point that I realized I felt similarly to the day I ran the Music City 1/2 Marathon. I knew that after the race, I would be "useless" the rest of the day.

And so I planned the rest of my day accordingly. Yes, I ran an errand or two before picking the kids back up from school, but aside from that, it was a do nothing kinda day.

Fortunately, it was "movie night" at our house. A quiet evening of snuggling my boy.

Exactly what I needed.
