At ease or somthing like it.

I have been "resting" for 4 days now, after a bout with pnemonia last weekend. I have taken sick days at the group home, pulleed myself out of music lessons for the week, aquired a fill-in maintainance person for the shelter, and asked Jamie to get her Mom to take the kids for the weekend.

I really did try to take it easy, but by yesterday afternoon I was going batty so I vacuumed the whole house and today I did about 11 loads of laundry and unpacked some more of the garage. I am sorry. I don't do "taking it easy" very well. I have learned, through this experience, never to spend money on a tropical vacation. I wouldn't last two days poolside before I went loopy. How does a person (as described to me by dear friends who vacation often) just sit on a beach day after day.

It's not that I don't stop to smell the roses, I do. It's just that, if I am stopping to smell them, why not weed them while I'm at it? Maybe even trim a few to take home. Far more satisfying, in my opinion.

well, at least you were able to relinquish some of your load and so for you that was taking it easy. And believe me there's much more to do on tropical islands that sit at the beach - jungle hiking, snorkelling - which you would absolutely love! drinking funky drinks, para-sailing, cruising, dancing the night away to some great music....When do you want to head out? I'm game!

Are there yarn stores? Coz if there are yarn stores, I am totally coming along too. But don't tell Ferd about the record stores. We'd have to charter a container ship to get everything home, then.
