A day of rest

I'm doing my best to remember that today is Sunday. It hasn't felt like Sunday at all, but I know that it is today.

One of the best parts of today was not setting the alarm. We slept in (to 6:42!) which was wonderful. I loved just being able to gradually wake up instead of being jerked awake at 4:08 so I can make it to my 5am class. Tomorrow's class isn't until 6 so I can sleep in a little bit, too.

Otherwise, MS and I relaxed until we had to go into town. I got to welcome home a friend who had been overseas with the military for the last 3 months on a rough tour. It was great to see him and chat a bit. Then I ran a couple errands - getting pictures developed from yesterday's zoo trip, and getting a small album for MS's mom so she could have some in her apartment at the AL. She liked the pictures, I think. She's not super happy to be in the AL, but we're trying our best to help her get comfortable.

MS and I even went to the mall and shopped a bit. Crazy stuff. I'm so not a mall person but the mall was practically empty. I guess that's a tip to me - shop on holiday weekends. :)

Tonight we're just veggin', which I really need. I just need to breathe and relax. Tomorrow starts another week. :)

So for your viewing pleasure, here are MS and I at the zoo. :)

When I was a teenager, I loved malls. Now, mall crowds give me anxiety!

Glad you are able to get some relaxing in, that's so nice! And sleeping in until you wake up naturally is one of my favorite things, I did that this morning and woke up at 6:41! :-)

I hate malls!!! I can't stand being in crowded places where you're constantly bumping up against one another...like during those after Thanksgiving sales. Ick. :(

This has been a great weekend for relaxing. :) I slept in this morning too. :)
