“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

Overdoes It

I overdid it yesterday.  How, you may ask?

I did my stretches and yoga.  I threw a turkey in the oven.  I folded TWO loads of laundry.  And I roasted some vegetables.

My sweet 13-year old daughter hugged me after dinner and said, "Boy, you really did a lot today, Mom."

*sigh*  This is why the type-A person inside of me is climbing up the walls.

Sorry you're paying for your "busy" day yesterday, Shelli, but I really loved your last comment! The type A person inside me is ALWAYS climbing the walls!!

How nice that your daughter understands so well. Hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving with your family.

I relate so well to the type A personality climbing the walls...after 26 yrs with CFS/ME I have adjusted better but give me a house full of people and I am right back at it.

I totally know you feel. The Type A person inside me is ALWAYS climbing the walls. It's funny that what seems like a lot to me now used to be NOTHING! That's so hard to deal with and accept!
