Listen To Your Mother: Sleep More, Work Less

by jennifer

I’ve been trying to keep a low profile and stay home as much as possible lately. The silver lining of my continued illness is that I’ve finally tried Pinterest and I really like it. It’s a great way to organize everything that inspires you on the web on a virtual bulletin board that you can share with the world. As a woman with countless disorganized bookmarks on my computer, this is just the sort of organizational tool I need. Now I just have to figure out how to find more time to pin everything I like.

It’s week four of my spring cold and I feel like I’m trapped in a suspended reality. I’ve been working in slow motion for weeks and trying my best to keep all the plates spinning. I normally move through life in fast forward, so I’ve been struggling a bit with my lack of patience for these things.

But every time I’m forced to slow down against my will, I’m reminded to sleep more and work less. Somebody, please remind me that I wrote this when I’m well. It’s so easy to forget the sleep part when I’m feeling great.

So if you’ve been wondering why I haven’t posted a new podcast in weeks, it’s because my voice is still raspy and I’m still in recovery mode. But I’ve been to the doctor (twice) and I’ll eventually be fine and podcasting again. Thanks so much for your patience.

Oh, and the photo at the top of this post documents one of the things that has resulted from the fact that I haven’t been going out of my house much lately. I dusted off (literally) a loom I had stashed in a corner and finished a patchwork piece I started last summer. I guess there are some benefits to be sick. Cough, cough, hack…

Oh, and one more thing. I posted the winner of the “Just Be Happy Crochet” book here. Thanks to everyone who posted comments.

Ok, so I’m going to head to bed. If you have a favorite cold-kicking remedy please share it below. I should have asked you guys for help weeks ago. Be well!
