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:
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!)
