I spent the majority of the last week (starting last Monday, all the way through today!) feeling under the weather. The usual head cold, slight fever, headache, sinus pain kind of thing I get every year when the seasons change from summer to fall and again winter to spring.
So, in the last 7 days:
I have worn make-up twice.
I watched every single show in my Hulu queue. Most of them in bed.
I finished the last few pages of my book.
I did not pick up a single bit of the mess in the living room.
I spent every evening in, on the couch, with Scott.
I neglected the internet almost completely.
I went through 14 Kleenexes in 3 hours one day at work.
I relaxed as much as I could and let my body fix itself.
I'm renewed and recharged for the days ahead. Although being sick is the worst, it's also a reminder that our bodies are so amazingly made that they can actually communicate to us when we need to slow down. Don't forget to listen!
