Not so much this time.
The kids had a performance on Wednesday–at a nursing home, so that was really very sweet (those are the pictures behind the fake ferns)–and there was car shopping for Mate and grocery shopping Thursday, Friday was a cluster of grooming, errands, and exhaustion, and Saturday was a combination of soccer, birthday parties, and the Homecoming Dance.
And somewhere in there, I developed a ginormous headache that still persists, and basically called it quits.
And I was like, “No.”
“No, seriously, it’s super quick.”
“No. Just… no.”
It’s funny, how sometimes you think you have no options to take care of yourself, but you find yourself going, “Uhm, giving up now. Self-care is the thing.”
So anyway–after walking the dogs and picking Big T up and trying for a nap in spite of the headache, I spent much of today staring blankly at the television, knitting.
I may be human tomorrow.
So sorry about the absence–it’s been something of a week. But I should be back online tomorrow, just in time for Halloween, and, three days later, Disney with the family. (Because who needs to keep their kids in school, right?)
May you too have the freedom sometimes to just say no.
I know it did me a world of good this weekend, and a little peace is a great thing.
