R is for Rest

Rest is a word that has not been in my vocabulary for a while; at least not as something that I actively practiced. I am learning what it means, and I think that I rather enjoy it. It is nice to know that when I get sick I can rest a bit without anyone trying to ensure that I cannot rest at all. The six months or so have had a single constant, that is that I am doing better without my last husband than I ever did with him.

We are both happier. It saddens me to see that my little girl has never been truly happy before but now we are both learning what rest is and we are taking the time to learn when to say enough is enough. We are spending our time at parks, eating out on occasion and window shopping. I must say that we are truly enjoying ourselves. The rest is easier to achieve now that we don't have appointments every day or even once a week.

The fact that over the last six months we have reduced the amount of appointments that we have is something that both of us got used to rather quickly. We will be returning to our regular routine of appointments in a month or so but until then we are going to continue enjoying not having to go anywhere unless we want to.

We are going to investigate these things called vacations that I have heard so much about over the years. I think we're over due for one, it's just a matter of figuring out where to go and what we're going to do. It won't be a long vacation, or one that is very far away but we're going to make the most of it. It could be something as simple as spending a few nights in a local hotel but whatever it is we are going to enjoy it.

Learning how to rest is one of the most fun lessons that I have had in my lifetime.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
