I have run myself ragged and am in need of some serious r & r. I have been juggling a ton of projects with school and work and I found myself with a cold last week that is still lingering. I tried to push through it by working on a Habitat for Humanity site Friday and painting my room over the weekend, but I’m thinking that wasn’t the best way to handle it. So, today I am going to attend class, hang with my Oma, and try to relax. Midterms are next week along with my trip to North Carolina and I need to be in tiptop shape to take those on. I know it’s a Tuesday, but take some time to relax today. Sit outside, enjoy the fall weather (ok, still summer here), read over your lunch break, and slow down.
