Well, it's another Furlough Friday for my husband so to celebrate I'm taking a Furlough Fitness day. I think it's fair... if the county doesn't have enough funds to employ my husband today then my body doesn't have enough energy funds to fuel another running day... plus it's a scheduled rest day :). I would imagine that "resting" will include such fun things as mopping our floors, doing laundry, dusting, organizing some closets... and I'm sure a bunch of other "fun" activities because when my husband is home he feels the need to "deep clean" and as much as I'd love to just sit around on the couch eating bon bons and watching soap operas in my jammies like I would normally do while he's slaving away at work (okay not really, I usually get dressed and read blogs instead of soap operas... ha ha) for some reason I feel guilted into doing a little "tidying up" myself. Don't get me wrong, I love that my husband likes to clean and have a clean house... I just don't feel like doing it today. Isn't there a great saying that goes something along the lines of "Why do today what you could put off until tomorrow."?! I think we should lounge around in our jammies until noon, eat cupcakes for lunch then take a nice long leisurely nap... oh crap, I forgot about the kids, maybe they could feed themselves and tidy up while we're relaxing? Why do I have the feeling that by the end of today Dan will wish he could have gone to work and I will wish that I had gone running?
