This morning I woke up on the brink of tears. I was already exhausted and the day hadn’t even started yet. All I wanted was to stay in bed all day. Unfortunately, mold avoidance never gives us a day off, so I slowly forced myself to get up and started wiping down the van.
Little did I know, I was in for a surprise! When Brett popped his head into the van to say “Good morning!” he informed me that he was planning to do all the chores today. He said he wanted me to rest and take the day off. I felt a little guilty accepting his help but I was mostly just relieved! Wow! What a guy I married!
So, I just sat in my chair today. I wasted time, worked on writing, wasted more time and rested. I think I might be experiencing withdrawal symptoms from taking that last painkiller dose out a little too quickly. I was in more pain today and just felt exhausted and gloomy most of the day. It didn’t help that it was another miserably hot day.
I feel really bad that Brett had to do laundry and cook in the blazing heat but he was happy to do it. He’s a lot more efficient than I am. I think that’s probably because he’s stronger and can carry more water and wet clothes at a time. Normally, I have to do it little by little.
So, when he finished the chores we still had time left over to be together and chat. The evening passed in pleasant conversation. We talked about our goals, our finances, finding a church and prioritizing relationships. Finally! A restful day! 😊
By the way, Brett and I made a beautiful PDF of my favorite resources for suffering souls. I created the content and he made it look fancy with his superduper graphic design skills. It’s available for free to my email subscribers. Click here to sign up and receive 5 Resources for the Suffering Soul.
