Friday highlights: I spent the better part of the day packing up my office for my move overseas. The movers come on Tues/Wed for my household goods (it will take about 3 months to ship over there) and then for the next month, I’ll be bumming it around, traveling to see friends and staying with my BF and Baby B. here. Super, super exhausting, moving is! More emotional anxiety than I was expecting…especially because I am so psyched about it. I can’t RELAX! Sitting down challenges me….but my body protests. The highlight of my day? A PACKAGE from Dr. Kracker! 4 New Culinary Crisps to try! So far, I’ve eaten almost a whole box of apple crisp. (What to trade? I am in need of 2 packages of Western Bagel Perfect 10 Bagels if you’d like to try out HUMMUS and Cherry Seminola! Just sign up for my Share Yourself Giveay! )
Saturday highlights: Saturday, I always make time for Jack. After spending some time at a Farmer’s Market (forgot the camera! Sorry!) where we scored chocolate bread and fresh basil, and oozing cantelope/watermelon, we salivated over lunch at Whole Foods:perfected by wine tasting. all day long, my heart felt rushed…and although I had no time frame, yet my spirit felt as if time was running out and I was late for something. I think this is one reason YOGA has been distasty lately…I am avoiding the quietness within me. I’ve packed in a lot of the loss that moving ahead entails. When this happens, I want to figure it out…but what I really need is comfort….so I whipped up some pesto grilled cheese while completing my LAST project here…wall plaques.
The plaques and pesto didn’t hit the spot. Around 11pm, although my mind said “it’s too late to eat! wait til morning,” my tummy crave blueberry oatmeal. Within 5 minutes of hitting my tummy, my whole body let go, and I relaxed…how random is that!
Sunday Highlights: Finally, dragging myself to Yoga, after a short 45 minute session where I was both strong and unfurled with random thoughts, I enjoyed a brief 3miler. Ah! So freeing. Volunteering at a community street fair, I scored this adorable (:!) cereal/yogurt bowl…isn’t this divine??? Just the treat I’ll need to have when I first arrive…European yogurt anyone?
Long walks, riding the bike to the veggie market, and talks with loved ones…plus a bubble bath and the new read, and finally, I am ready to end my “work” week and begin again tomorrow.
Do you pack it up or in when stressed?
