Can I Buy Some Time, Please?

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied."

I'm happy to report that I'm officially off the disabled list (although some may argue differently-ha!). I successfully made it through the day and have finally regained my sense of purpose. However, I have a problem. There is so much that I want to do, but many more things that I have to do. Oh the dilemma...

Lounging on the couch and spending the whole weekend feeling like complete trash, proved beyond frustrating. I know I'm sick when my favorite foods sound terrible. But, I know the end looms near when things like books and knitting fail to excite me. As I sat on the couch all weekend, I found myself extremely frustrated. There were so many of my favorite littles that I could have lost myself in, yet I could not muster the energy or the enthusiasm to adjust my pillow. Pathetic, huh?

Now, it's back to the real world where I have lesson plans to do, sub-plans to write, biography projects to grade, a new bulletin board to put up, errands to run, a suitcase to pack, and all my littles patiently beckoning me...

"Come knit," whisper the needles.

"Make some tea and get lost in my world," the book softly sighs.

"I need a fresh coat of polish," chide my tootsies.

Oh, if only I could have more time. Wouldn't it be fabulous if we could purchase free time in the same manner in which one can buy a calling card? Rather than paying for 120 pre-paid minutes of phone time, I'd love to hand over my precious greenbacks for a few moments of free-time, me-time.

I am so glad you are feeling better. Thanks for all the positive things you said about Kate. I love how you see the beauty in everything.

I hope you have a nice mini-break with "me-time" and soon!
