Today is my first Saturaday off in...
I stayed behind.
This is my duty weekend with the Reserves, which I requested off 2 months ago ,as I graduate from college tomorrow.
Normally my alarm would have gone off a half hour earlier than normal because I don't have breakfast stuff at the hotel on reserve weekeds.
Not only was I not at the hospital (I work in an emergency room), not at the reserves, and not asleep, I was home alone on a Saturday morning for the first time in six months.
I was utterly lost.
I began wracking my brain for things to do. After resisiting the urge to go back to bed, fire up the Playstation, or go out to grab some coffee, I managed to get my car's oil changed, make a trip to the post office, and do a little grocery shopping all before 9:00 A.M.
A friend of mine recently told me I should remember how to relax.
