Monday night's phantom pain led to an extremely frustrating Tuesday. Thanks to copious amounts of coffee, I managed to get through Circle Time and virtual craft class. After Timmy was done with his classes I started my meetings and projects for the day. By the time the sun went down I was ready for bed.
Even though I was tired, I took advantage of the beautiful weather by going for a long bike ride with Robby and Timmy. We also hunted for leaves for a future rubbing project and played on the swing set. I purposely left my phone inside when we went out for "recess." I am learning that it is as important for me to disconnect as it is for the kids.
After a good night sleep, I'm feeling better and more human today. It is amazing how a few hours of solid sleep can completely change my mood and perspective. My to-do list is no shorter, but I am feeling ready to tackle anything that comes my way.
