In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Health Re-entry

I survived a weekend bout with the flu.   3 out of 4 family members had it along with a group of local extended family members.  Now I feel like I am planning my re-entry to life.  The benefit of being sick was that I did have some time where I gave myself permission to just do the bare necessities.   Are the kids safe?  Are the healthy family members fed?  Once those were checked off I gave myself permission to relax and sleep.

Now there is the fact of trying to play catch up with what didn’t get done as well as make progress on previous goals before getting sick.   Accomplishing this without pushing it too far and missing out on self care or sleep.  The other risk is that I will use the “I was sick” excuse for way too long and be lazy.

Considering this is my first day of working after being sick, I’m going to load the dishwasher and head to bed.  My goal for tonight was let the appliances be productive for me—load of laundry in dryer—-supper for tommorrow loaded in crock pot—-dishes unloaded and ready to be loaded.

Have a great day!
