Quest for Balance: Week Nine

Hello, dear readers!

Wow, am I so behind.

Last Sunday, I woke up nauseous–a feeling that didn’t go away until yesterday, a week later, forcing me to sleep and stay in bed for a week straight. It sounds nice if one was feeling fine, but when you’re feeling like shit and can’t do anything, it really, really sucks (but definitely makes you appreciate it when you’re healthy). Add on the fact that I just made my To-Do list for this week, which is basically two weeks slammed into one, and I’m just trying to do my best to not fall into sickness again thanks to all the stress.

  1. Aghhhhh being sick is the worst. I’m glad you’re feeling better and ready to hit the ground running again. Having made my weekly to do list today as well, I definitely feel the “Nooooow I’m even more stressed…great” feeling. But you/we got this!

  2. Being sick sucks, I’m still trying to get caught up with my plans that got derailed when I got sick last month. Sometimes, I feel like I’m planning to much and that not factoring in downtime isn’t too healthy.
    Glad to hear you’re back on your feet and I hope you’re doing a better job than I am at catching up πŸ™‚

    1. I think I do the same thing with planning too much. I definitely don’t plan near enough downtime or wiggle room, which makes missing deadlines way too stressful. A lesson to be learned there, I think.

      Ha! Last week was okay, but hopefully this one will be better! I know we can do it (even if it’s a slow catch-up).
