Day 80: Best Laid Plans…

I have been so excited about being off for 7 days because I had so many plans regarding how I would use that time.  God is laughing at those plans.  My 1st day off was Thursday.  I didn’t feel well that day but it was nothing major so I powered through it to get things done.  Friday, I still felt “off” but we had our dinner with Rick’s kids and I powered through that as well.  Saturday, there wasn’t much power left but I still accomplished things between a couple of naps.  Today, I have accomplished very little aside from a nap.  Not too sure what’s wrong but I have zero energy an upset stomach, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and a low-grade fever with chills.  So, something is going on…probably a mild virus.  Just enough to throw off my plans a bit.  Life isn’t always fair.  This kind of makes me wonder about even trying to make plans.  But, I’ll continue trying to plan but maybe I’ll just call them tentative plans so I won’t be so disappointed when they fall apart.  The only words of wisdom that I have to impart today are rest, take care of yourself, pay attention to what your body is telling you, don’t try to do too much, and don’t feel guilty for not being able to check off all of the boxes on your to-do list every day.  Oh, and at least try to write something.  Now I think that I might be heading back to bed for another nap.
