The Big Chill

{Source: Via Apartment Therapy}

Why hello there. So guess what? I survived my first surgery. Crazy, huh? I guess 'em doctors do know a thing or two. Nothing to worry about. Just a little surgery-smergry.  Thank you to every one for all the well wishes! I do have to say though a funny little thing happened during  this past week of recovery. I did something I haven't done in a looooooong time.

I rested. No kidding, I slept like the dead!

It was foolish but I have to admit prior to surgery I pictured spending one day recovering in bed & the rest of the week off feverishly (but slowely & a little painfully) working away on shop orders, crafting, cleaning out closets, & yadda, yadda, yadda. After all when you have alot on your plate you have to make every free minute count, right? In reality, this is how my week went:

Get a glass of water. Take a nap.
Brush my teeth. Take a nap.
Walk down the stairs. Take a nap.
Pet the dog.Take a nap.
Pin a recipe. Take a nap.
Roll over in bed. Take a nap.

You get the point. I liked my naps this week. ALOT.

The hubby commented that perhaps my body needed the rest alot more than I realized. 
Honestly, I couldn't agree more.
So with that being said instead of jumping right back into the hustle & bustle of things this week I am going to take another week off from the bloggity-blog & hold on to that inner stillness for just a little longer.

Hope you all have a delightful week & can't wait to catch up with all you lovelies!

Pin It

GOOD FOR YOU!!! I'm so happy you're taking time off! I remember feeling that way after I took a very long Christmas vacation off of the old blog...I wanted to come back to the bloggy world just cause I missed all my friends, but it was so nice to just NOT have to worry about anything but relaxing. Take it easy and keep on nappin'!
