Sick and Busy....

Farmers Market, MecarlaComment

AGH you guys!!!  I have been so sick!  Haven't been this sick in years and I feel like it is never going to go all the way away!  I am on my 9th day, and still feel bad......although I think I have rounded the bend and starting to mend.  (Did you catch that? It rhymed!)  Sorry I haven't kept my promise of blogging twice a week, I just couldn't do it!  Things have been so hectic around here and I truly feel like I am one step away from a nervous breakdown.  Between the car accident, being sick, art deadlines, and the washer breaking I feel as though I have been hit by a bus!

I have this horrible habit of over committing myself and never saying no.  I have sat back and realized that I could have said "no" to several things last week and my life would have been so much easier and maybe I wouldn't have gotten quite so sick.  I should have said "no" to having a  booth at the farmers market on Saturday.  I should have said "no" to the lady that wanted her painting finished by this week.  I should have said "no" to the repair guy when he asked if it was ok to bring the washer next week.  I should have said "no".  Bottom line.....I need to learn how to give myself a break!  My entire life has been this path of overcommitting, and trying to make everyone else happy.  You would think at the age of 40 I would have figured it out. :)  Do you ever overcommit?

I am taking today to give my body time to heal, take a rest and try not to feel guilty about it.

Here are a few pics from the weekend.  It started off like this:

weekendthen I ran over to the laundry mat to wash everyone's clothes (which wasn't the best idea I have ever had):

weekend-2 after the laundry got done I felt like this (WARNING: be prepared for gigantic sick selfie):

weekend-1Soooooo......with that being said.....the lesson of this blog post????? STOP DOING SO MUCH STUFF AND TAKE TIME TO LET YOUR BODY HEAL!  LEARN HOW TO SAY NO!!!!!!

I admit it, I totally over did it this weekend and paid the price.  Lesson learned.  (Ya right).

We are gearing up for Memorial Day Weekend here in Anacortes.  I have my fingers crossed for sunshine!!!

Hope to see you at the market, we will be there! (and I promise not to show up if I am super sick, ha! ha!)
