Slowing down

I’m having one of those days today – one of those days when my body is telling me that I’ve overdone things in the past week or so – one of those days when my mind won’t focus and my body won’t go.  One of those days when overcoming the sludge that surrounds me, literally and figuratively, seems like more work that it is worth.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks – crazy month, actually. After a fun, but busy spring break week we came home to two weeks of testing for the girls, SuperMan working twelve hour days, three doctor visits and re-checks and me trying to work and take care of the home front, too.

There’s been baking



and canning


and hiking (although I didn’t go this time)


It’s been three weeks of crazy busy days.  And I’m tired.

So, today, I’m taking it slow. Listening to my body.  Picking my battles. Taking it easier.

I’ll pick up steam tomorrow.  I’ll face the dragons then.  Today, I’m going to enjoy the little birdies on my bird feeder outside my office window and only do what I have to do.  The rest will wait.


The dirty clothes will be there tomorrow.  The pollen dust will still be waiting to be dusted.  The errands can wait, too.

First I’m going to rest, recharge and renew.

What about you?  How’re you doing this Monday?

One thought on “Slowing down

  1. I second that! Seems like I’m only home long enough to make a mess. 😦
    I’ve worked the last 3(!) Sundays and feel like I’m starved for the family and rest time Sunday brings.
    Here’s hoping we can both pick up steam and move along. COME ON SUMMER!!!
