I came of out of Thanksgiving Day feeling really great about going home. I spent time with my parents, siblings, nieces, nephews and grand-nephews. My folks home was full of loud voices, football and good food. Thanksgiving was the prelude to the next 27 days as of today.
Driving back home on Sunday, because I live 7.5 hours away from where I grew up, I noted that I was tired. The last week and the weekend was catching up to me. I knew what that meant. I need another day to recover from the four day celebration and the 7.5 hour drive in major traffic.
It is Monday morning and I require more sleep and I need two more bubble bath to take the previous week’s celebration down a notch. What I am learning this morning is I will be doing the minimum for the remainder of the holiday season.
I should have planned to take today off from work as well. I love traveling for the holidays or for fun but, I am still learning how to recover. With that being noted, let me have my Monday morning coffee and find some strength. No stress!
