I've been sick on and off for two weeks. Thankfully, I'm on the mend - I finally went to CVS Minute Clinic the other night to find out I had an ear infection AND a sinus infection. Ahhh - the joys of sitting right by the nurse's office at an elementary school!
My job is super crazy right now. There is an open position in my office right now... and kind of has been all year... interviews are being conducted, but it still boils down to me doing the work of two. I come home and just want to sit there and stare at the wall. Not kidding either because sometimes that's what I do.
Which in turn means my house is not the neatest it's ever been. The kids are wondering why Christmas decorations haven't made it out of the boxes. I'm wondering if Christmas will happen since shopping isn't going on!
And, poor Cute Husband. He works at UPS, which, as you can imagine is all he is doing right now. Working or sleeping.
It's no wonder why I've only run 3.1 miles in the last week!
I'm trying to look at the broader picture.
I won't be sick forever. They will hire someone else to work with me. The house will get cleaned up. And, Christmas will happen.
I may not be earning my points to winning the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge, but I have decided to try and enjoy what's going on anyway.
I am looking forward to this:
And I'm really super enjoying watching my kids in various concerts and shows they are doing for the school holiday season. Last night was a JV Soccer game followed by a orchestra concert. Even though I really really really really really really really wanted to go home and I had no idea what dinner was going to be, I enjoyed hearing all the Christmas music they were playing. I hadn't heard much up until last night. I am so blessed!

Are there seasons of your life that you'd love to be running but it just isn't possible? How do you deal with it?
