Lately I have been working a lot. I am running my companies flu clinics around the area. It’s been stressful to say the least but I know it’s a good resume builder. So when I am not on call on the weekends I am really trying hard to put myself first and to also enjoy them as much as I can.
This weekend started with a quiet night sitting on my couch with my Sestra having a few drinks and talking. It was so needed for both of us. Saturday morning I got up and went to PT and was released to resume all activities with my knee. Then I went with my brother and niece to Letchworth State Park. We walked around, took pictures, had lunch and just talked. It was a great day spent with two of my favorite people. But when I got home after that I felt horrible. My knee was fine but my body was angry. So I took today to rest, drink lots of fluids and relax and I feel much better tonight.
I am not on call again next weekend and I already have some plans. I need to make the most of my weekends combining self care and family/friends. I really do love fall and the holiday seasons. Here’s to making the most out of life.
