I rested A LOT this week. There was a lot of naps and sitting and doing NOTHING.

We ordered food in, we went to bed early, I took so many warm bubble baths. It was great.

I’m still not 100% from my bout of ear infection/vertigo earlier this week + the antibiotics I’m on are wreaking havoc on my GI tract if you catch my drift. I still can’t hear out of my left ear.

So I’ve been resting. It has been GREAT.

I didn’t use to rest, I couldn’t imagine spending this much time doing “nothing.”

Now, I appreciate it so much more.

Invest in your rest. Give yourself permission to just BE.

That’s all.

    I just hit your blog to see if you’re active again.

    I immediately noted the new pic of the boys with the ‘new baby’ sign.EmojiEmojiEmoji

    So excited for you, Craig and the boys on your expanding family. I hope the remainder of your pregnancy is uneventful. You’ve been plenty sick enough these last few weeks.

    Take careEmoji
