Making Time To Recover

Hello New Day.
Hello New Week.
Hello New Adventure.

HelloMonday

 

My energy level, motivation level, my anything level really is at zero. Last Friday I had surgery. I have been forced to take it easy, which is making me go stir crazy! Then on top of it we have been having crazy gloomy weather which has just been sucking whatever life I had left. Now here we are Monday morning and all I want to do is sleep, but I have kids so we all know that won’t happen.

Usually I would have goals for the week, but this week I have just one: Recover. The last thing I want to do is over do it, and hurt myself further and drag out this recovery. So this whole situation has got me thinking…

Why is it when I’m in the middle of the hustle and bustle of life I can’t wait for a break, time to slow down, time to relax, time to read or catch up on a show. And then when I actually get the chance to slow down (even though it was forced on me) all I want to do is to do all the stuff?!

Seriously the mom guilt, the to-do lists, the boredom has just grown and grown! Its unreal, and so stupid, but its there. I had surgery. I have no choice but to take it easy, something I have been wanted to do, and then it happens, and Hello Mom Guilt.

This week is about recovering and not losing my mind while I do it. While also taking care of my 3 kids. I love it when the hospital told me to take it easy and not do anything for two weeks, and I said I had 3 kids to take care of including a toddler, their response “Oh, well then… just try to take it easy, if possible.” That is what I am going to try to do: recover and rest, while not going crazy, taking care of my 3 kids while not over doing it. Yup, sounds easy enough.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
