...to do nothing and then rest afterwards.
That was my motto for yesterday evening and this morning. I have been sick for a week, and Carey's working out of town, so it's been a rough few days. So last night my in-laws took the kids for a sleepover and I was able to get some much-needed R&R. And I really did nothing! Last night I watched TV, knitted and played Scrabble on my phone. This morning I "slept in" (only until 7:30, but I stayed in bed until 8, which is still considered a sleep-in!) and had a lazy morning. I painted my toenails, went for a short walk (my energy levels are still pretty low), and did more knitting and Scrabble. I felt almost a little guilty about being so unproductive with so much time to myself, but I got over it pretty quickly. I needed the rest and the quiet, and it was wonderful.
