The Day I Stayed Home

I made a goal for myself, a strange goal that took three years to accomplish.

I wanted a day at home.  A day when I did not leave the confines of my lovely condo all day long.  I don't even remember the last time I stayed in one location all day.

For those of you who know me, this is a pretty impossible task.  I hit the gym six days per week and have church on the seventh day.

I devised a plan.  Every six months the LDS church has Semi-Annual General Conference.  I can watch these broadcasts on TV.  I'm a sucker for invites from friends to watch at their homes, however, so for 2.5 years this wasn't quite working out.  Six months ago on a Sunday during Conference, I thought my goal would finally be met, but woke up with Vertigo and had to be taken to Instacare for a nice shot in the butt.

This past General Conference (Sunday, April 3) I had my mind made up to turn down all invites and stay in my hillside haven.  And I did.

Not nearly as spectacular as I had hoped, but relaxing.  Pretty anti-climactic, isn't it?  Yeah, that's how I felt, but one more goal check-marked off the list.
