Just a Place Mark
Yesterday I spent the day in bed.
I say spent. It felt more like I wasted yet another day. After being in bed struggling towards health for days, it was nice to have a romantic dinner with Rob and then a day of socializing but I resented every minute I lay in bed, trying to recover from everything.
I suppose it didn’t help that the weather was unkind: rain and wind.
I really had no choice. With company coming today, I had to allow my body the rest it demanded or how could I fight my way through today?
And I needed to fight. My computer was being problematic and, although I had planned on editing the newsletter, all I could do was compose the content and make sure I had enough relevant content, content that I thought was interesting, to say that it is complete. I decided to review three resources, rather than one. I made sure I had images, sent an email to confirm that I had permission to use one image, etc.
That was yesterday. I didn’t sleep all day, which is what I’d been doing all last week, waking up long enough to read a little, nibble a little, collapse again. At least I was in bed reading, making notes, thinking.
Always thinking. Unless I’m asleep.
Today we had company coming and I knew I had to have a rough preview of the newsletter ready. Push push push.
And then . . . uh oh . . . is that the back of my throat feeling dry? Drink water. Scratchy? More water. Uh oh.
I want to collapse but time for dinner. Dinner first.
And more water.
I had hoped to begin writing something about my Reiki meditation this morning but I really don’t have the energy to focus my thoughts. Instead, I am updating this almost as a place mark, a reminder that I wanted to post about the Reiki Principles and affirmations. I guess I’ll have to do it on a day which is not so busy.
