Resisting the Urge to Chaos

It’s the morning after. Tired still, a bit of clean up lingering, some fogginess. Cleo the cat particularly adamant that she, rather than my computer, have lap. Soon, honey, soon. Ax let me rub his back for a really long time this morning. We both needed extra morning snuggles. Mike’s off on his early morning gym routine and no doubt will want mellow when he comes home.

I’m resisting the urge to invite forty people over just to keep the party going so I don’t have this after-party crash thud thing happening. Like I feel like I could maybe go back to sleep but also maybe create some chaos. I definitely am not in the mood for admin or shopping.

So it’s coffee time, then more snuggles, maybe a few friends over to help eat the rest of the quinoa and mushroom pie, some bare minimum of cleaning. Maybe today I’ll read a book, call out-of-town family, and sit on the beach since walking is still no-go.

I don’t know what today will bring but I’m gonna take it slow and easy. There’s no need to rush into anything, no need to effort through anything. I could have some rest, some quiet and it would be okay. It might be just the thing, in fact. I could take a little extra vitamin C. I could eat mostly leafy greens and do some light stretching. I’m gonna keep going.
