It feels like an eternity since I’ve been back here. I was hoping to get some writing time in during Spring Break but that was quickly retracted when I came down with a cold.
After recovering from the cold, I was kept busy by taking care of my mother after she injured her back.
After that, I came down with a strong stomach flu that kept me out of commission for about two weeks.
I couldn’t work on any assignments nor do anything around the house, I was also subjected to a bland/liquid diet until I got better.
Finally after two doctor’s visits, 3 medication prescriptions and a shot of penicillin, at the start of this past weekend I began feeling better. In the back of my mind I feel like I was wearing myself out with my study/work ethic. I never gave my body a break to rest because I was always on ‘GO GO GO’ mode and only shut off to get a few hours of sleep.
I took this as my body’s way of telling me to slow down. It was loud and clear.
So, over the weekend I enjoyed a movie and am finally reintroducing myself to real food again. Let this be a lesson learned, I will use weekends for what they were intended; to relax.
Alas, the weekend is over and it is Monday. I’m getting back into the routine of studying because I sure do have a lot to catch up on. I will make a real post sometime during this week now that I am fully functioning again. Thank you all for being so patient!
