Well, it's the week of Christmas. And I'm not doing too terribly badly.
I've got some time off work coming up and I'm going to enjoy the heck out of it by doing a whole lot of nothing. Just rest and relaxation. And doing what I can to avoid or at least reduce any potential stress or drama or man oh man ... the stuff this season can bring.
I'm just kind of trying to breathe my way through it all. Avoiding stores and malls helps. Walking instead of driving when possible helps too.
It was the shortest day of the year on Sunday so things will start to get brighter soon. Or, soonish, anyway.
My body is run down, I can tell, I slept 11 hours Friday night... my gums are all weirdly swollen and so very sore, and I'm pretty sure I'm clenching my jaw all the time.
There's a weird kind of a respite sometimes in the days after Christmas before the New Year's frenzy and I'll probably avoid that as well.
Still would like to get away. To a forest. And a tent. And some snow. But there's not much (or any) of that around my parts right now so perhaps just my quiet apartment and some bubble bath and chocolate.
But not too much chocolate. Healthy eating to help my body from getting too run down and no, I know this isn't a "Christmassy" post... I'm totally ok with that.
Happy Tuesday y'all... the longer days are coming back.
