Welcome July!

As I walked in my house Monday night and was met by the stench of dishes I haven't gotten to yet (dishwasher?! What's that?), something I'd been thinking lately was reenforced.

I need to SLOW DOWN.

Now, those of you that know me personally know I thrive on staying busy. I'm good at it. I can fill my time like nobody's business. Especially when it comes to taking care of people I care about. (I'd like to think I'm good at taking care of them too, but they'd be a better judge of that.)

I really haven't had much down time since June 18th. This past weekend, I had a great time in Disneyland, followed up yesterday by an evening at the San Deigo County Fair. At no time since the 18th have I been to bed before midnight. And when Clydas gets me up at 5:30am every morning like clockwork, that makes for a very short night. (How I survived working 8 hours shifts on 4 hours of sleep a few years back in my "kareoke every night" phase, I'll never know.)

So I'm going to have to tweak my schedule a bit and make sure I'm making adquate time for working out, meditation, and resting.

It's amazing how easy it is to forget about taking care of ourselves sometimes!


  1. You ARE great at taking care of everyone else. Now it's time to take care of yourself. Hmmm, where have I heard that before? I'm pretty sure we had this conversation, lol. Anyway, it's YOU time, go for it! Love ya, sis!

  2. Looks like my June wasn't the only one on fire. :D Slowing down is great. It's really much healthier than trying to "keep busy" in the long run - considering how good you seem to have been about excercising I think it's safe to say you're not in danger of getting flabby by taking a break. PS I fiddled with the comment section of my blog so hopefully you can post comments now!
