Grounded Two Days a Week

I have a confession to make: I am officially spent. I think for a good few months after my Little Cricket was born I was running fine. Sure it was hard being a new mom and it was hard to recover from surgery sure I was tired but I have worked long and hard hours before. Lately I have been feeling more and more run down. Maybe it was all the traveling my Little Cricket and I did (mostly without Mr. Rogue), maybe it has been the constant feeling that I am always behind it what I want to be getting done and my constant attempting to catch up. Maybe all my reserves are finally gone. I did start feeling slightly better once my Little Cricket started sleeping through the night but it isn't enough to make up for all the deprivation.

So I am making a new rule, at least for a few weeks, or maybe even longer. I am slowing it down and grounding myself until I feel more normal. I like a busy schedule, I like to travel, I like to go out to dinner and to the park and shopping and a million other things. My phone is always on, I am constantly checking email and facebook, I am constantly answering calls and addressing business concerns. I am running errands and cleaning up and cooking things from scratch and trying new recipes. For now I am done.


I am going to use my sons two naps to relax and not get things done. I am going to nap, or I am going to read a book, or I am just going to sit in silence and stare at a wall. My phone will be off during those naps. And I wont be available as often. For at least two days a week I am not going out. I am going to resist filling my days with fun. And hopefully I can fill back up my tank and start living my life again full of energy.

Gotta stop and gas up so you can go when you want to sometimes. It's just the way it goes.
