steps to recovery

July 9, 2010

I’m the kind of tired where I barely have the energy to take care of myself, but since I have to go back to work this weekend to continue taking care of other people, I’m trying to get myself back on my feet today.

Step One: Pop some pills. I woke up with a killer headache, and though I usually try to avoid medicine for as long as possible, I didn’t want to deal with it today. Four ibuprofen, down the hatch.

Step Two: Take a shower. The only reason I did this was because I was meeting Tabaitha for breakfast. I’m grateful for this not only because I got to see her, but because the shower did a lot for my energy level.

Step Three: Food and coffee. Tabaitha introduced me to my new favorite place, just five minutes from my house, The Bagel Cafe. I’ve already told David that we’re starting a new tradition of going there every Sunday before church (when I’m not working, of course).

Step Four: Relax. Spend a few hours reading blogs, playing with my dogs, & reading.

Step Five: Be a little productive. Pay bills, get a few groceries, and clean the floors.

Step Six: Work on a fun project. I’ve decided to make vacation jars to display in our home a la Young House Love, and today will be the day that I begin.

Step Seven: Cook dinner for family. The perfect way to end the day, with comfort food and loved ones.

Hopefully by the end of today I’ll be ready to conquer another weekend of work!

    Love days like that where you try to get a lot done and I hope you did! Hopefully you’re feeling better by now? I love the vacation jar idea which I saw earlier this week on YHL. I have so many memories stored up in boxes that are never seen until we dig them out.

    I always find that I accomplish a lot more when I write a list out for myself. Hang in there love.
