Finding The Time...
Saturday, June 15, 2013
It took forever for Friday to get here! At 10:00 I had another informal metal clay class at my instructor's home. Not only do I love to learn and improve my craft, Jennifer is so funny and we always have a great time together. But before I could go play I had to get my chores out of the way. So up at 4, took my 4 mile walk, put a load of laundry in, tended to the garden, took a shower and then out the door to do the grocery shopping. I had checked the ads the night before, clipped my coupons and planned the best way to hit the 3 stores to get all the sale items.
Even though I started out on time, some how the morning got away from me. I had to wait 20 minutes in Basha's for them to grind the beef and package it, then when I went to Fry's they only had two lanes open...and some how I forgot to eat breakfast. I barely got home and put the groceries away and it was time to go for my class.
We worked until 1:30 and decided to take a lunch break. By this time I was so hungry that I had a headache. It was 102 outside and by the time we hit the restaurant...I was not feeling all that well. I was able to enjoy my lunch and felt refreshed. We went back to her house and worked for another couple of hours. The headache never really went away.
Before I knew it, my husband was calling my cell phone telling me he was home from work and it was time to pick him up and hit Costco. Thank goodness we had left overs for his dinner. My headache was worse so I skipped dinner and just drank water and had a frozen fruit pop. Three o'clock this morning I woke up with a splitting headache, got up took a couple of aspirins, tried to lay back down, but they decided not to stay down. So I turned off my alarm and went back to sleep. When I woke up at 5, I was feeling much better. We skipped our walk this morning and headed right out to tend to the garden. While I feel guilty for missing the walk, it was more important to rest. Later I'll get a good swim in.
Why is it that as adults it is so darn hard to carve time out for ourselves?
