Sometimes after a really long, busy, and stressful week, it does the soul good to go to bed early, sleep in, and have a lazy morning filled with coffee and reading. My plans for the rest of the day include exercising, showering (and probably putting pajamas back on after), more reading, and unfortunately some work too. I can have this de-stressing day because I don't have a child and because I'm not responsible for anyone but myself (and to a lesser extent the husband and dog). A year ago I couldn't have seen this silver lining. Right now I'm incredibly thankful for it.
