I have been so busy the last few weeks (months), that I did not realize that my kids’ spring break started today. How sad is that? They have no school today through April 9th. Bad mommy! College daughter also turns eighteen next week. Yes, I almost missed it all. I also discovered last week that the weather had changed. I went outside and saw that the trees had bloomed–last time I noticed, the weather was cold and everything was bare.
Apparently, since Hermit Week, I have been in my office too much–only dashing out to do necessary things like take kids to school and pick up groceries and takeout. I know that when I am driving, I am thinking about all the things I have to catch up on–making lists in my mind, and writing them down at stop lights. At night, I wake a zillion times–grab my tablet or laptop and work, or just lie in bed and wait on time to get up…to work.
Does this sound like a problem? I think it likely is. Yesterday, I decided to go get a massage. “Twas fabulous. I actually got back (briefly) to the place I was at Hermit Week–A place where I had a moment of no thought. After the massage, I bought a six-month membership of massages. I think I need it. I have to start relaxing a bit. Today…as soon as I finish typing this post, actually, I am going to go get a facial. Wish me luck on relaxing. I hope your day is peaceful, too.
I’d love to hear your techniques for NOT letting work rule your life…
