NaBloPoMo #28 - I don't have time to be sick...

I had my plan of action for this week.  Stay on schedule, things will get done, no stress involved.

I went to bed, slept like a rock, and stretched myself awake this morning at 7:00, ready to take on the day.

And then I sat up in bed.  Or at least I tried to.  My body sat up....but then the room started spinning and my body went with it back down to the bed. Okay...let's try this again.

I swung my legs over the bed, sat up, and got out of bed to grab my bathrobe.

The room was still spinning, and I hit the wall.

Great.  It was going to be one of THOSE kind of days.

Third times the charm, right?  I got up determined to make it to the shower, only to realize that the bathroom was another spinning room, and a shower probably wasn't the best (or safest option) at that point.

Thankful for neighbors who can take my kids to school, I managed to get the monkey children out the door, and I went back to bed...

I don't have time for this.  Grocery store, remember?  Intimidating craft store, remember?  I have other things to do than entertain a spinning room.

8 1/2 hours later, still not running at peak performance, but slowly getting better as the day moves on.

I just wanted to pass something on that someone close to me shared with me when things get crazy or feel overwhelming. Just breathe. It's simple and you know what it works. It makes you take that extra second. Helps me and I hope it helps you.
