Thank God for weekends

If you know me or have followed some of my posts, you’re aware that I suffer from chronic migraines. I prefer not to be defined by my ailment, but the truth is that my ailment defines my schedule. I really needed this past weekend to recover and recharge following a tough stretch Thursday evening and Friday.

Because our schedules are less constrictive, we tend to pack our weekend with chores. However, we try to have at least one day in our weekend reserved for relaxation. It’s necessary! The husband has a long work commute and a job that can sometimes be stressful. He needs to have at least one day that is unscheduled or at least scheduled with things that can be energizing rather than draining.

Saturday was that day for us this past weekend. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, read the newspaper and just appreciated the freedom from a “to do” list. I was able to recuperate and the husband was able to rest his back that had been bothering him for a few weeks.

While we don’t believe in wasting time, we do believe in investing in our spiritual, mental and physical health. Sometimes the invitations have to be declined. Sometimes the chores have to wait for another day. Sometimes it’s more important to enjoy the simplicity of spending time together doing nothing.

  1. Oh Man… Chedric took vacation all last week while Sue was here and for the most part we just relaxed while she was here.. we went to Donnelly Dome and went for a hike and went camping at Chena Hot Springs… but Chedric and I ended up getting colds the last few days Sue was here and still feel pretty awful.. We took her back to the airport Saturday and on Sunday we just laid on the couch and watched movies all day long.. I am on the mend from this cold, but still feel like I have low energy.. yesterday I was still on the couch for the first half of the day! I just had nothing to give… Today it is a lot better, but not 100% yet… I hope your headaches become less frequent and you are able to function and feel your best! Miss you and love you!
