So since I am a teacher, I have about 2 months off. Now, granted, this time is filled with some work such as professional workshops, trainings, interviewing candidates, working on lesson plans. Still though, is is a nice chunk of time to call “vacation”. This summer, I took some of my required classes right after school was dismissed and while I have gone up to campus to conduct a few interviews, I cannot complain at all. I have had a lot of time to relax.
I would really like to say that I have spent this time in a productive way, but that isn’t the case at all! While I have managed to do some small projects like organize the closet, the plastic drawer and the papers that need filing, other than that….Ugh. My main focus this summer is to work on getting well. This requires dedication! Ha! I have my Picc line now, so it takes about an hour to dose. I then try and clean the house as much as I can: 6 dogs running in and out the doggie door and the shedding-Oiy! About noonish, I lay down with a heating pad and a book and do some reading for a few hours. Sometimes, this turns into like 4 hours. And then, sometimes, I attempt dinner if I know husband will be home, proceeded by watching some shows.
While I wish I could do more, I know that the best thing for me right now is to not overextend and to rest constantly. I am working hard to build up my immune system so it fights back the Lyme as well as for the first day of school! I plan on working this year! I completed last year successfully; it was a long haul but I was proud of myself for meeting this goal. Anyway, with resting as the project this summer, ain’t much getting done! I hope all of you are getting some relaxation in too!
