I’m heading into week six of school and I’m sick already. Totally sucks. I hate losing my weekend to self-care. My oldest daughter had a bit of a cold last week and with the weather change from 80 degree temps to 60 degree temps, I’ve got a full-blown head cold. Part of it may well be from working in Kindergarten with all the new germs. Keeps my immune system on her toes.
Usually, a good solid day of sleeping and fluids will put me just about right again. Which tells me, yes, I need more rest and fluids in general.
My reaction to a weekend of self-care is also telling. I want to WANT to take better care of myself and not feel sheepish telling my family they’re on their own this weekend. Truly, they are old enough, and will be fine. I want them to understand I’m not asking for their permission or pity. I’m sick and I’m going to take care of myself…off you go.
This last week of September, I’m taking part in a focus group to find a new school superintendent. I’m more excited about heading to Chicago this coming weekend with my girls!
Which brings me to my little contest.
We had three guesses, two from new readers which was SUPER exciting! Thank you Alma, Sue and eyoung24 for bravely offering up names. My bias, as the kids say, is Jimin.
He is so beautiful. I think that might have been the first thing I said to my girls about K-pop. As I got a little deeper in, he became three-dimensional. He’s, in turn, charming, silly, a scaredy cat, funny, touchingly sensitive. One thing that strikes me about these boys is their humanity.
So, in celebration of our upcoming concert trip and to thank my readers, all three of you will be getting a book with a little surprise from the concert. Thanks so much for playing with me! I’ll be contacting you for your information.
Now, back to my bed and Gypsy Cold Care Tea…….
