|Monday's relaxing Walk On Ice with P and our girls|
Just wanted to leave a blog before the weekend activities commences. My laptop's power cable, I thought has finally said adieu this morning,
Since this trusted friend of mine is SO unpredictable, I thought of ways to simplify my life, and avoid stress specially regarding blogging - my way of destressing in the first place.
First, I decided I better save all the images from yesterday, and those for this weekend, all meant for the February Photo A Day Challenge, and share them all on Monday or Tuesday.
Also the other pictures I wanted to share documenting our Walk On Ice 2012 will have to wait next week. Ugh. I never learn! lol P has been gently and consistently reminding me to transfer all my stuff to the external HD and since December, I have been negligent, and you know how easily you can ignore what you have to do and do what is more convenient - in my case save all my stuff on my laptop.
Second, I'm unplugging and reconnecting this weekend, earlier than the Screen-Free Week event :D.
I'm still trying to fully shake off this flu/cold virus that I have been dealing with since December - can you believe it?! I tried everything and I feel because of new transitions in our lives, once again, it's just a natural process of my body to adjust and cope. In this way, I am reminded more and more to focus, prioritize, and simplify!
This is exactly what I am going to do this weekend! I've put the breaks yesterday, to put my mind at reset, and just rest for a complete 5 days! Biking the girls to school when it's freezing cold has not been a good idea either and does not contribute to complete recuperation but at the moment there is no better alternative.
I've learned again this week, that it's okay to seek help, to tell and show others your vulnerability, and you gain more respect (as well as self-respect!) and strength for it.
This is after all the purpose of this blog, to share mine and my family's steps on the path towards a simple and enriching life.
Have a great weekend! And for those in the Netherlands : enjoy the walk/skate/fun on ice while we all can!!!
