Rest Day

After spending the past four days on a weeding/organizing spree, I decided to take a break today. Well, actually, my body decided that. I woke up at around 7:30am which is the earliest I've woken up in ages. My husband was still asleep downstairs so I decided not to make coffee and just worked on my cross stitch and knitting all morning. Around 11am, I figured I could get an hour of weed pulling in before it started to get too hot, but when I got up to use the bathroom, I could still barely move.

At that point, I knew I had to take a day off.

Except, I can't seem to just sit around anymore. Instead of pulling weeds, I ended up tackling the laundry brought up from the garage. Most of it belongs to the 10yo but there was stuff mixed in from the girls, my older son, a lot from my husband (he leaves his stuff in the living room and it gets thrown in the laundry room) and from the baby. I've done about five loads of laundry today and only the last one was my own clothes. I still need to go fold the last load of bedding and transfer my clothes to the dryer before I go to bed.

So my "rest" day involved a lot of folding laundry. But at least I feel like I accomplished something. I just need to feel useful after over a year of sitting around unable to contribute anything to the family because of constant fatigue.

Other than the laundry, I just watched knitting videos on YouTube and discovered a new way to knit (Portuguese style).

Of course, after being up so long today, I'm barely able to keep my eyes open now. I was going to do this entry an hour ago, but that's when my husband went to bed and kicked the 10yo off the computer so he came up here instead. I told him several times I needed to do my writing but...

Ugh, and I forgot about the laundry. I don't think I have the energy now. I need to get to bed.
