After five jam-packed days in England, today was the perfect day to sit around and do absolutely nothing. It rained today, which is not all that different from what it has been the entire time we’ve been here. The prospect of going outside into the chilly weather and the rain was less than appealing. Fortunately, we have a lot of comfy couches and a spacious living room.
This trip has certainly been a whirlwind of all sorts and having a day to sit down, relax and unpack it has been very nice. I haven’t really had a day like this since my nieces Bat Mitzvah. I forgot how nice and necessary it is to do nothing but sit and rest. Since I’m not working out at all while we are traveling, and it is already putting a strain on me, I need to find other ways to get that “me” time I usually get when I go to the gym.
Today showed me this is definitely an alternative method to the gym. Once we leave for Israel tomorrow morning and then Greece a few days after that, it will be a lot easier to have more of these moments. Walking around will be a lot more enjoyable since it will be warm and sunny. I can sit by the pool or the beach in Santorini, read a book and do nothing else.
I don’t think I have ever felt so done with my jeans. I want to wear the shorts I bought, my cute tank tops, and my sandals. I only bought so many pairs of socks because I figured I wouldn’t really need them. I have one left and I’m saving it for the plane ride tomorrow.
We need to get up at 5:30 so we can get to the airport for our flight. The saving grace is that I can actually sleep on the plane we are taking so I won’t be totally wiped out. All three of us are totally exhausted by now. Hopefully, all of us will get a good night’s sleep so we are re-energized for our second leg of the trip.
