Saturday is a special day.
It's the day we get ready for Sunday--
And go out on dates
participate in church activities,
decorate Christmas trees,
do a little shopping,
and have friends over.
It's also a high-demand day at my tutoring job, since many students have Saturday off of work. Today was the last day of fall break so I didn't have to work.
We combined date with church activity, which was a nativity display with hundreds of beautiful creches on display. We had friends over and they helped decorate our Christmas tree. We did a little Christmas shopping in between.
And exercise...well, I decided on Saturdays I will just do a mile, just fit it in somewhere. Of course, I'm only at a mile right now so today was a normal workout.
So today, after our visitors around 7:30, I took a little nap, because although it was a fun day it was exhausting. But I set a timer for 12 minutes, and then I woke up, and I looked at the pretty Christmas tree, and I asked myself,
"Which is more important, reaching my goal or taking a longer nap?" I sat there for a very short debate, and then I got up and...
I walked a mile!
