Rest is underrated. On a scale of one to 10, 10 is too weak for rest. You need a bigger scale.
I sat down today and with glee and calculated all the things I could get done. I ended up doing the very bare necessities (ear worm trigger, sorry). Maybe less! And it was okay. Not as in it was an “okay experience” but as in it was “okay” to allow myself to slack off.
I got to play Monster with the kids. Do a bit of grocery shopping by myself. Give the boys a bath. Watch a Star Trek fan film. Eat a “Land and Air” burger (hold the Sea). Play Monster again. It was a great day.
I know I’m going to have to put in a few “off the the record” hours of work but I am taking Leap Day off.
Now I’m already overdue for some sleep.
