I woke up yesterday, and just felt good, notably good. I usually feel fine, but yesterday, I felt good. I did some grading, got some chores done, and relaxed.
I think every so often, that third day of a weekend really, really makes a difference. For me, day four was a total bonus.
I feel refreshed. I'm mostly caught up on grading (the research papers that came in on Wednesday are more than half done, even) and have a good sense of where things are going for the next couple of weeks.
These will be busy weeks for us in all sorts of ways, but I'm looking forward to the business.
For a four day weekend with lots of rest and relaxation, I am truly grateful.
