Doing Nothing – Over Achiever Style
March 12, 2010 § 5 Comments
Though my shoulder is much better than it was last week, even earlier this week, I’m still in some pain during the day and a lot of pain at night. Despite knowing that the advice to do as little as possible so as to not to strain or reinjure myself is sound, it’s very difficult to practice.
Doing nothing today has so far resulted in two loads of laundry, a stew simmering on the stove, a desk drawer cleaned out with the contents sorted into baskets and, of course, some absolutely necessary blogging. 😉
Hubby is going to kill me when he gets home…okay, not really but boy is he going to nag.
It’s just so hard to do nothing when there’s always so much to do. It’s a lot easier to rest when I know I’ve at least gotten a few things done so I don’t feel like a total waste of space.
I’m not trying to be any kind of hero, honestly I’m not. I’m really just trying to stay sane and fend off the increasing boredom that has taken over my life.
Besides, and I honestly didn’t think it was possible considering how much I love it, even I’m getting a little sick of the syropy, “I Love You, Pa” ‘s of Little House on the Prairie.
Maybe it’s time to start watching reruns of Hell’s Kitchen. If anyone can bring balance to Micheal Landon’s warm, good-nature manner, it’s definitely Gordon Ramsey.
Have a great weekend all!
