Thursday and Friday Ryan was sick so I had 2 days I was forced to stay at home. At first I was kind of annoyed that I had to change my plans, including having a Valentine's lunch with Kel, but when your kid is sick your kid is sick.

On day 2 of staying at home, I realized I should really do this more often! I have gotten a lot done and feel more relaxed and refreshed than I normally do at the end of the day. I started thinking about if it was possible to organize my week in a way that I stay at home at least one weekday per week, but I'm just not sure if it's possible. Between work (teaching at 2 different colleges, meeting with athletes, teaching spin classes and rehearsals) and training (really swimming is the only thing I have to leave the house for) it's practically impossible. The only day I don't have to be somewhere is Monday, but I usually swim on Monday.

I'm almost thinking it would be worth it to try to swim on a different day so I can have the day at home. What is interesting about my train of thought is that generally speaking I like to be on the go. I'm actually surprised by my sudden desire to have a day at home each week.  I guess Jane Austen had it right:

"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort."
