aaaahhhh, here is to a couple of calm and peaceful days ahead!!
As most of you are aware, I spend most of my days looking after my husband who is recovering from a stroke. He is doing excellent, it's been a long 6 months, but each day brings new little improvements. I am so happy that he is on the road to recovery... but somewhere along the line, I became exhausted. I just didn't realise it until I took him up to his mothers yesterday where he will stay for a couple of weeks. I came home today, made a cup of coffee, sat down on the recliner, turned the TV on to watch good old Dr Phil.... and promptly fell asleep! I am tired!
Yesterday, I thought, wow... I will have a couple of weeks of me time.... I am going to work wonders, I am going to clean the house from top to bottom, move furniture and polish the floors until I can see my reflection... and then start on the outside...There are sheds to be cleaned out, and and acre of garden that desperately needs my attention.....That was yesterday, but since then, I have had time to come to my senses ,,,, I think I am going to have some creative time! Some wonderful uninterupted creative time. I will sit down at my messy dining room table and create until my heart is content!! I will not get up to dispense pills or run errands, or even to cook for that matter... this will be REAL "me" time!
Oh I could clean the house like I said... but it will only get dusty and need doing again in a couple of days... so I figure it can stay dusty for a few days, and then I will only need to do it once before I go up there to get him.... I love woman's logic, it all makes perfect sense to me!!
I hope your week ahead is full of fun, love, family, friends and creativity
Oh, and well done everyone... we are now 181 strong!!
