I know I sound like a whiner and I suppose I am whining but I know it will pass. I have a cold, not the plague, and it is not serious, just inconvenient. Especially since I was trying to edit the book and I could not keep my eyes open.
That made me discover something today that might be worth sharing. That is that usually I don't give myself permission to stop and do nothing unless I am sick or exhausted. I am once again reminded that this is not a good thing. It is okay to just take some time to recharge and not feel like you need a reason to do that.
Probably one of the reasons I got sick is because I have been staying up until 12 or 1 every morning and not sleeping late enough, and generally not taking care of myself. Ironically, if I had, I would be done editing the chapters I wanted to today.
I also did something I don't do much anymore: I took a nap, one of my favorite things ever. I love it, always have. I remember when I was in college I tried to arrange my schedule so I could have as many naps as possible. Of course, I needed them then since I usually stayed up late and never slept at night. But again, I digress.
