After what ended up being a really tough week, I decided to take Friday off work. I needed a day to recharge, to relax, and to get some things done. On one hand, I wanted to run around town and on the other hand, I wanted to just sit at home. I ended up doing the latter and it was awesome!
Thursday night was a weird night, so I was especially glad I didn’t go into the office on Friday. Despite the long week, I was hit with insomnia this week. Thursday night I fell asleep at 8:30PM but then was up from 11:30PM-5AM. Not great, but I made the most of it and honestly got a full day’s worth of work in! Taking Friday “off” ended up not being a big deal since I tackled so much Thursday night.
It wasn’t a great week, but I was really thankful for the day off and the extra ounce of weekend it gave me.
