If this was last year, I would have been excited to have an extra day to meet my running goal. Or an extra rest day. My goal was to run 2,015 miles during the year which averaged to just under 7 miles per day with one day off per week. It was hard, especially when I didn’t feel good, so I’m not shooting for that goal for this year.
So what will I do with that extra day this year?
It’s a Monday, so laundry is usually on the agenda. In theory, writing is on the agenda in between switching loads.
Given how this past week has gone, it will be a time to degermify the house. My second graders’ class had at least four students (one of them being one of my children) missing every day and by the end of the week, kindergartener’s class was keeping pace. Thankfully we were blessed with the sore throat, stuffy nose, barking cough that traveled through the school and not the let’s see what you had for breakfast germs that were also making the rounds.
Since Leap Day was not a snow day, I will be able to squeeze some writing into the gaps left by these chores and take the crazy dog for a walk.
The bonus part of the week is that my Bible study on Tuesdays doesn’t meet this week, so that’s three extra hours to write or whatever. I’m hoping to make some progress on one of the stories I’m working on. Just have to decide which one: Alzheimer’s, Bigfoot, yoga, or spontaneous human combustion. Which would you choose?
