I needed these last few days of doing nothing. Trying not to worry about the future. Not putting out fires or managing kids, not doing household chores or errands or the millions of little things I always have on the agenda. Just doing nothing. I slept 15 hours last night, solid.
Granted I just pushed everything off. Things still need to get done. No one else is lining up to take care of all the things I take care of in life, but I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to do this. To do absolutely nothing. I had one meal yesterday. So there wasn’t much to think of. Played music. Was in my head all day, day dreaming, wondering, just being.
It felt so good. So relaxing. Haven’t left the house in two days. Two solid days of pure relaxation. My liver feels better, even though I didn’t do the flush. I’ll slate it for next weekend. I was too tired to do the regimen last night.
I need to find my book too. The one with the official protocol. Is it 1/2 cup or full cup of olive oil? I really hope it’s 1/2 a cup. But if I have to I can get a full cup down. I know the rest is accurate, but I need to clarify that before I take it on again. Make 100% sure I have it correct. Don’t want to waste my time and effort again.
I’m still not in “back to work” mode. Although I did take two hours yesterday to make school, medical and business calls. Some things just can’t wait.
These school weeks are so hard. The little one needs a lot of help with homeschooling. Then there are doc appointments, work, meal shopping, prepping and cooking, bill paying, on and on and on. And no division of labor, all me really. Fun, fun!
So two days of rest when I haven’t had the pleasure or opportunity to vacation in over two years has been a blessing I may need to repeat more often.
Life stops for no one, but stopping one’s life to take a breather is such a very good and necessary thing. It truly is❣️
I may sneak in an afternoon bath before the kids get back from their dads. That sounds like a grand plan. Doesn’t it?
