I had a huge lie-in today. I woke up ten to nine and then surfed the internet until 11ish. While I really don’t like that I did that, I think I needed it after this weekend. I didn’t take care of myself like I could have. I could have brought snacks with me to eat. It was a good weekend overall, but I can learn a lot from it. I’m more lenient about food when I am with DH. I’ve actually been a lot more lenient with money too. My will power has been put towards other things. That, or my emotions are running free. That is why I am doing this whole values thing. Have I truly seen any progress? I think that it was progress to keep up with the journal while doing the festival. That’s a baby step. This is not going to be an automatic change. It will take time.
I find that if I am not taking care of myself, I do not take as good of care of my family. So now that the festival is done, it is time for me again. During the school year busy times I don’t spend a lot of time on me, so I need to be sure that I take time durin the off seasons to concentrate on me; to replenish myself. That way I can take better care of my family.
My mind is all over the place. I am having a difficult time focusing. I guess it is just one of those days. Maybe it’s having coffee two days in a row and not having my yarrow tea for a while.
Well, I’m having yarrow tea now. I just don’t want to do anything. I don’t like that I seem to need a day to recover after an event. Maybe a walk will help. The dogs need one anyways. Poor Kiba has had to be on lead the last couple of days because Hunter found ways to go under the fence.
