Monday, Monday

Monday, Monday…  starting another work week. [We haven’t had a song reference for awhile so here’s Monday, Monday by The Mamas & The Papas.]

I say I was ‘bad’ over the weekend but that may not be completely true. Just mostly true. I did finish mowing the lawn Friday night. I went to Zumba Saturday and walked the dog every day. Even got her to the dog park twice. My husband is moving around better and doing some short distance driving so we took the opportunity to take her. I cleaned the bathroom and sorted laundry.

I also did a little cooking. I don’t like to cook and often depend upon something ‘quick and dirty’, meaning already-prepared for meals. This is not at all good, especially when I am feeling stressed. Good nutrition is important.

Even if cooking a good meal has become difficult for you – or you just plain don’t enjoy it – you should be aware of nutrition.

I cleaned up the kitchen. Put all the dishes in the dishwasher….oh,  I also changed and washed the bedding. Maybe my saying I was being ‘bad’ was  not mostly true but pretty much true.

The reason l say I was ‘bad’ is because I sat and listened to an audio book all Sunday afternoon. I generally don’t let myself ‘waste’ time like that. There was plenty of work to do and I tend to be hard on myself when it is not getting done. When I was being raised hearing  “how can you just sit there and look at things that need to be done?” was not a question, it was an accusation of laziness. Sunday I sat there and looked at work!

I put chemicals in the pool. Tried to figure out what is wrong with the pool vacuum. Finished typing a report for work. Wrote two pages for the website. Looked over my notes for DBT class, arranged for a neighborhood child to weed the garden….so maybe I was ‘bad’ a little bit?

Or maybe I wasn’t anywhere nearly as bad as I thought I was.  Maybe taking a little time off to enjoy some entertainment is a good thing?

A lot of us were raised with a strong work ethic. I know I was raised that way. But stopping to replenish yourself is important. Sometimes this visually impaired business can be challenging and tiring. Things suddenly take on a whole new level of difficulty.

And sometimes it is alright to stare at work and be ‘bad’. It is not like it is going to go anywhere!
