I planned for it. Gave myself a totally quiet day. I am back at school working and feel like a ditz. I left my phone out. Misplaced things. Struggle with the simplest task. Heavy sigh. Be kind to myself. I don't need to beat myself up for down time after high activity time. Marathoners rest after a race. I need to rest after a busy couple of weeks. I succeeded by the standards I set. I have food left over that will freeze nicely. I gave away food. (I even bought take food containers for people to take food home with them.) I keep expecting myself to get right on the next task but I need transition time. I need down time. I need to have fun. Today I did. I worked on decorations for the preschool. I played with construction paper gingerbread men. I've never made real ones myself....hmmmmm may be I need to invest in a gingerbread man cookie cutter.....Run, run as fast as you can...You can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man. Squirrel.
