I am pretty good in a crisis, but I fall apart when it's over. So although I dealt with yesterday's pandemonium pretty well, it took me all day to recover.
At Friday Show and Tell on Writers Li.P.P., I shared my plans for the day. But I didn't work from a list. I simply followed the whisperings of my heart. I wrote. I knitted. I watched Betty White on David Letterman and Sarah Ferguson on Oprah. I ate barbecued potato chips and a chocolate fudgesicle. I took a late afternoon nap in the lounge chair on my deck.
I tried not to think. Because both my body AND my mind needed a break.
Now the day is nearly over, and I am feeling a bit more rested and a lot more centered than I did this time yesterday. I am looking forward to getting up early and starting the morning in a thoughtful way - with meditation, morning pages, and a review of the day's schedule - then putting on my Writers Li.P.P. t-shirt and my hot pink suede shoes and stepping out to the monthly meeting of Georgia Romance Writers and having lunch with my Petit Fours and Hot Tamales blog sisters afterwards.
Then I'll be ready to get back to work.
