I didnít get around to actually working today, but I wonít go on and on about it. Iíd talk about what I did instead, but thereís not much glamour or adventure in lying around watching sports on TV. You might even say that I wasted a whole day that way.
But I donít see it like that. Any day spent doing either what you need to do or what you want to do canít be wasted. I needed to rest today. And I wanted to watch NASCAR and baseball. So it was a highly successful, productive day. Okay, not so much productive, in the sense of advancing the cause of civilization (or reconciling my bank statement). But Iím satisfied.
After all, people should listen to their own bodies. Thatís what Iíve been told all week, mostly by Tammy. She was supposed to be on bed rest, but she knew what she could and couldnít do, and it has worked out for her. She does what she wants and needs to do. All Iím doing is listening to my body, which tells me to stop and rest. And listening to my mind, which tells me that itís okay to do that.
