We’ve been transfixed the last twenty-four hours watching the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy; how weird it feels to be on the other side of a tropical system. Here it’s strangely clear and beautiful…and a bit chilly. Yesterday, my day off, I went to early vote. I waited nearly an hour and I was so glad I grabbed a sweater before I walked out the door…unfortunately it was covered in pet hair (so I was that person in line). Further disappointment, was when I didn’t realize an hour wait, standing in line would wear me out for the entire day. Sometimes, I forget it’s only been a year and half since I went through radiation treatment and I try to behave like any other 30 something year old. C fussed at me when I got home…why didn’t I sit down, tell someone…I don’t think I realized, myself, until I poured myself back in the car to go home.
Back home, I had planned a lot of “to do’s”…lots to make for the shop, clean the house so it looks as good as everyone else’s in their blogs, fix an amazing dinner…none of this happen. I went straight to bed with a persistent headache and snuggled under a warm couple of quilts, joined through out the day by at least two dogs and two cats who peacefully slumbered while I treated myself to a couple foreign films on Netflix and perused the Craftsy online class catalog . Sometimes I have to remind myself to step back because fortunately even though I’m healthy, I don’t always have the stamina but I do have tomorrow.
