final sick days

 
as you may know, I have been out sick for the past week. Today I am just now feeling “normal” enough. I haven’t felt this bad in about 6 years, and for that, I am grateful. Being sickly makes me appreciate being well. It makes me not take my good health for granted, since it can be taken away so quickly.

My puppies have enjoyed my being here full time and I have to admit, I like it too. I could get used to being a stay at home mom, but I would also have to have another hobby/outlet/volunteer work/job to go to, so I could socialize with other adults, to learn about what’s going on in the world, although France 24 and MHz worldwide have done a lot of that for me this week too.
 
I’ve had time to rest, relax, destress, and do some more meditating. I had taken part in the chopra center’s 21 day meditation challenge recently and I have to say it was great. I got to listen to different meditations every morning before I started my day and it really made a difference. I downloaded a few meditations to my phone so I can still participate in a led meditation every morning,now that it’s still dark in the morning.
So much for my stay-cation.
