Taking care of myself

In the past, when I received bad news, especially stressful news, I comforted myself by burrowing into the sofa with massive amounts of mind-numbing food shoveled into my mouth whilst the TV distracted with equally mind-numbing ‘entertainment.’

This time, I’m taking care of myself.  Hubby received his news last Thursday.  And I’ve made it a point to keep working out.  Yesterday I added weights and boy howdy I was sore this morning.  It was tempting to take an unplanned rest day.  But down deep, I knew the soreness would go away if I went through the motions again today, without the weights.  And I was right.  And by taking care of myself physically,  I feel that I am strong enough to get through this with my husband without resorting to drowning in a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia.   One day at a time.

 We’re on vacation this week.  And I’ve got a knitting push on to finish up a gift.  I can’t show pictures of my current project – it is a gift after all. But I plan to whip up a pair or two of these for my next project.  I knit something like 8 pairs of these between Halloween and Christmas last year.  They’re a fun fast knit.  I need that now.

    I’m so happy to read that you are taking care of you. The news your hubby received sucks, plain and simple. But taking care of you is so important. Kudos to you!

      @ ProjectMe – thank you! It’s good to see you. I know you’ve had your share of life sucker punches in the past few years and you’ve always handled things with grace. Thanks for being here and showing your support. Maura
