I like my days calm and clutter-free. Not filled with so many appointments. But the week that went by, was busier than the one I imagined what busy meant. The weekend came as a relief. However, it had its share of things to do. Akku’s birthday was yesterday. Thankfully, we didn’t plan for anything major. It was a small affair with just the four of us. We did some shopping to please the boy and fortunately after an hour or so the boy was pleased, sort of.
My body is craving rest and relaxation. But when the longing increases, the mind finds it difficult to settle down and relax.
The coming week is fall break here. That means I don’t have to wake up early to pack lunch. I don’t have any drop-off duties in the morning or pick-up duties in the afternoon. If I want to I can spend the whole week at home in my pajamas.
I do have to deal with noise pollution at home, a side effect of fall break as the kids will be home. But that is manageable I hope.
The busy week made me realize one thing – I can. That matters, doesn’t it? Challenges will be thrown in our way, however, when we deal with them and put them in the done column, it’s a liberating feeling. As much as I don’t want any challenges in the coming week, I want to find the strength to put up with any challenges thrown my way.
I hope that this week I get to rest, relax, and recharge and get out of this perpetually tired feeling. I am making room for a lot of sleep to recharge my mind and body.
So that’s my plan for the week. What is yours?
