Sometimes You’ve Gotta Rest…

We had a fun filled week last week as my SIL and her family came to visit before they move to TZ in August! Dinosaur museums, walking trails, pizza and ice cream making, and staying up after the kids went to sleep to visit, among other things, filled our week. They are such a wonderful blessing to us and I’m thankful for the time we got with them. Even though we were going a lot, we made sure to build in down time each day, and thankfully I was able to avoid any major flares.

In my head, I had grand plans of blog posts to get going, projects to start around the house, and business tasks to work on. However, I awoke Tuesday morning to a very sick and sad little one. It was tempting to be a little frustrated because I felt okay, but was not able to work on anything because A wants lots of extra nursing and constant holding. If I’m not flaring, I feel like I need to be as productive as possible. But this is absolutely false. There may be dishes everywhere and my bedroom is overtaken with laundry, but I am doing the task I need to right now, sitting and watching a movie (and both of us taking a short nap earlier because she shared the snots with me. I thought moms weren’t supposed to get sick?!).

Sometimes, it’s a flare that wrecks our plans. Sometimes, our tiny humans need us. And sometimes, we just need to rest for us. And that’s okay, friends. The laundry doesn’t have any pressing engagements and I’m pretty sure the dishes can pencil you in later ;).

Anyone else having to slow down this week?
