Power Nap Central

Wednesday, May 08, 2019

I think I need this as a poster to frame and hang on the wall. I need this reminder so often. Tomorrow I am definitely going to pull out the "It's Okay Not to be Okay" study that I did last summer when I went on my doctor prescribed "ME TIME" vacation. Need to revisit some of those things that cause me to withdraw. It's all good.

This morning I woke up so tired and let myself sleep once the house was empty. Woke up about 9:30 so a 2-hour "power nap". I didn't have to go anywhere so I just got busy on straightening up the kitchen and doing some other cleaning before settling down to the paid work. It was nice not seeing any new work emails although I do need to see two certain ones come through. You know...the emergency edits I had to make Friday. Instead of a plan draft, as I still need more information from the client, I put on a Hallmark movie (Love on Ice) while I got the rest of the monthly budget reviews done. Then I started on a section of my pending list that gets ignored too easily and sent emails to get status updates and/or send documents to them for signing. Not much left on that section now! I did do some of it while on the webinar this evening.

I then got busy on supper prep as Isaac needed to leave about 6 for open gym and I had a continuing ed webinar that started at 5;30. I joined a little late, but not too bad. Anyway, it was skillet chicken & dressing and it was good. I loved that it was another simple one to put together too.

Now I am watching The Voice recordings from Monday/Tuesday, Tim is doing something somewhere (I honestly have no idea what he found to do tonight.) and Maegann is outside helping Justin fix her tail lights and dash lights. Her dad has been waiting on her to be home long enough to work on it with her, but this is okay too.

Tomorrow I have another webinar at 11, will take Isaac to the dentist at 3 and then to basketball practice at 7. Otherwise, the day is mine.

    I keep forgetting to mention this. I don't know how you watch movies and other TV shows while you are doing paperwork and plan editing, etc. I couldn't ever do that. I can only watch stuff when I am crocheting. However, when doing administrative work I do love music. We are each made differently though so glad you have a system that works for you.

    God is bringing things back into focus for you that you have already been taught but need a refresher for your good and I know you will heed His message that you find once again. Use this time to recharge and listen to His voice so your doctor doesn't have to give you a prescription of a vacation. You are able to prescribe that yourself as God directs you. However, if the family needs to see a doctor's prescription to take you seriously then, by all means, get your doctor's prescription.

    It appears that each family member has found their niche and is able to help others in what God has put in them as they themselves grow.
