It’s gross… there’s just no way around that!
I’m not sure what bothers me most: the inability to ever maintain the correct temperature to blanket ratio for more than a minute, the incredible amount of tissue boxes that I consume in my snot-filled state, the hazy, drooped eye lids which only give me a partial view of the world, or the lack of productivity.
I know, I’m ridiculous! I’m sick. I’m allowed to have a cold! But I sit, blow my nose, drink my tea, clear my throat and think of all the things I should be doing. I should be at work. I should be writing blog posts. I should be making jewelry for my upcoming craft fairs.
I should be resting.
I am an incredibly driven person. In fact, my friend Abby recently said, “I’ve never thought of myself as lazy, but next to you, it’s like I never leave my bed!” I’m obsessed. A good day to me is a productive day. I’m fighting hard to break that pattern.
Perhaps my current state of shivers and snot is meant to force me to rest.
So I’m going to do that now and try not to focus on what isn’t getting done, but be thankful for what is.
PS- I’ll spare you photos for today. I’m sure you can imagine!
