I have been feeling a bit torn lately. I don’t sit still well, but a full-blown case of hormone-driven nesting has hit me. I always have a list of to-dos for the house, but I have been attacking it with more enthusiasm than usual. It feels really good to get things done and clearing clutter from the house make me feel much happier and less stressed. But at the same time, I keep hearing from everyone around me to take it easy and listen to my body. Easier said than done, but I am getting to a point where when my feet start to hurt or my back tightens up I know it’s time to quit.
Today was another one of those days. In an effort to use up vacation time before I lose it, I took Monday and Tuesday off. And I made a promise to myself; one day for chores, another for art. Even though today was my chore day, I still wrapped up the day with some fun time. And I still plan on tomorrow being more creative time. There may be some crazy nesting/cleaning/energy highs, but they come with long naps and feeling a bit sluggish the rest of the time. So I am happy that for the first time in what feels like forever, I actually have pictures to share.
