Words of Encouragement

I've been having a talk with myself. A long talk that started this morning and is still going. A pep talk kind of talk. A talk because I'm fighting a sinus cold and have been dragging all day. A talk because I couldn't seem to get meals put together, the deals I was hoping to do at Walgreens fell through, I can't find the hot glue gun I need, I'm worrying about so many things, I wasn't a very good mama with Pearl today, and I'd rather throw myself a pity party.

I'm telling myself that it's okay to take one day (or more, if needed) and rest and put things on the back burner. Things like vacuuming, meal planning, going to the park, going to the store, laundry, picking up around the house. Everything can wait till I really have the energy. I just need to ask DH to help with what's the most important--that would be just the meals.

So I'm going to read some spiritual reading, use the neti pot, make myself a hot cup of tea, and watch a little of the country music awards before I REST!

Awww, sad! Many prayers for a speedy recovery (and if you need any advice/help on the Wags deals, let me know!).

Hope you feel better! Love that neti pot.
