Rain, rain, rain and more rain, our forecast for most of the day.
Rain makes for a perfect day to stay home. For me, it also tends to make me feel a little bit on the lazy side. It is days like these that I am ever so thankful that I no longer work a regular job. For the last eight years of my nursing career, I primarily worked giving in-home care to kids on ventilators. A rainy day, combined with eight hours of listening to the rhythmic lull of a vent, made it challenging to stay awake! I never once fell asleep (wouldn’t dare given the acuity of care involved) but rainy days sure were tough!
While I could binge watch HGTV via Sling, I probably won’t. Sling TV is a relatively recent $19.99/month guilty pleasure. I justify it as something that helps keep me from going stir-crazy now that our cooler weather keeps me indoors a lot more. Last Fall and Winter, I spent $7.99/month being subscribed to Netflix. With now having Sling TV, I won’t get Netflix. Figuring it this way, it means it only adds $12/month more to our Fall/Winter budget, which makes me feel a bit better about the cost.
Today I am tending to things in the house, earning some snowflake money via M-Turking and enjoying some extra time catching up on my favorite blogs. At some point, I’ll no doubt crack open a book, watch a show or two and will probably take a nap. On a rainy day, all these things make for a near perfect day!
How are you spending your day?
