When I am really sick (and this week I was REALLY sick), I can get to a place where I am convinced that I am always sick, always laying around doing nothing. This is my life. Heck, when I was in labor I convinced myself that I am always and will always be in labor! It’s a very dramatic experience, being me. Geesh.
So this past week, in my confined-to-bed listlessness, I started thinking about the good days. The days where we have successfully chased down adventure, or joy, or delight and claimed them for our own. Like the Day Out With Thomas. And like this day we went to Storm King last Spring. and I found comfort remembering through my own little Highlight Reel. So during the week, when the aches would settle down enough for me to wander around and start doing things, I began to put this page together.
And it a little bit felt like I was claiming our regular non-sick life. Yes, my life is sometimes confined to bed while the bathrooms slowly become horrifyingly filthy and the kitchen gets cluttered with old cereal bowls with their leftover puddles of milk fermenting quietly on the counter. But not always! Sometimes my life is fresh air and beautiful smiles and cool places! Remember that part, Robyn? Remember?
Yes. :) Just beginning to.
I have a few things planned this weekend that I am very excited about. Fish Eye Lens. Baby Zaida and family. Snow. and the continued progress out of this dang lingering post-flu fatigue! I got my eyes on the prize! ;)
Happy, happy weekending to you all!
