It Could Be Worse

Remember when I said it could be worse?

It could be that the chaos at home and the hectic pace at work are taking a toll. Maybe it was the full moon. Possibly, the ill effects of sleep deprivation are in play. Or it might be the onslaught of the ear infection I now appear to have. Whatever it is, I'm sick as hell.

Frankly, I think it’s all of the above with a little bit of emotional baggage thrown into the game. I’ve done a lot of emotional purging this year and I know I’m not finished yet. Much like the house, I know it will all be for the good and in the end it will be awesome for me. While I know that, the path getting there can still be loaded with landmines. I've set off more than a few this week.

So for right now I'm going to crawl back in bed and dream of walls that don't need to be stripped and skim coated, floors that that don't need tiling, and cabinets that don't require sanding and painting.

It happens to the best of us, but usually its a good time to think, get regrouped and reorganized and revamped for everything thats in store for you.

Good for you! After the way you've been hitting it, you need a little time to take a deep breath and be good to yourself.

Take care. I hope you feel better tomorrow!

It's awful when you feel like crap and look around at all the things you want to do - but your body is telling you to S.L.O.W. D.O.W.N. - and just take a break.

Hope you are feeling better soon - maybe you can just rent a bunch of John Hughes movies & stay in bed for the weekend. Laughter is the best medicine. Take care!

Here's an idea for this week's blog - "This D*mn House takes a vacation". Even God rested on the seventh day. Enjoy the Mother's departure and spoil yourself with all non-D*mn House related activities. I promise the break will restore all creative, physical and mental devices.
