Last week I felt like nothing in the world could stop me. I was checking things off my work list and wedding to-do list at record speed, feeling like I was not only getting caught up, but maybe, just maybe, getting ahead of schedule. Then sometime in the middle of the weekend, I developed a bit of a sore throat, and by last night that sore throat had turned into a full-fledged sinus infection. That fast-moving train from last week is now derailed.
The toughest thing about being sick for me is resting. I work from home and it’s too easy to start doing work, catch up on emails, clean the apartment or do some laundry. I feel guilty when I do nothing, and I hate that I feel that way.
I’m trying to reverse those guilty feelings and remind myself that taking care of my body should be my number one priority. So this morning, I slept in late, ate a very healthy and fresh breakfast with green tea and then I’m headed to the doctor this afternoon. I’m crossing my fingers that they give me something strong so I can enjoy my vacation to Florida this weekend.
On the upside, I bought some beautiful peonies this weekend and I’ve been enjoying them all week. I also finished a painting for our living room, had a picnic in the park and shared a perfect afternoon with Oliver.
