Acknowledging Limits

Yesterday my body gave up. I felt run down and my head wanted to explode. I felt a little better this morning but I thought my voice was going to give out. Also I was afraid I would have to be up late to finish all my homework. I decided to call in sick. Initially I felt really guilty...I probably could have bullied my way through the next few days. However it is time I acknowledge my limits and take care of myself. I don't have to prove that I can do it all.

As a lover of words, I love how a word can come into play in a situation with a variety of nuances.  The word of the weekend is "fellowship."

A lot of time the last few days has been focused on revising my application to the AAHID graduate research felowship. I did not get accepted for 2010, but I am reporting for 2011. This has gotten a lot of my mental energy...i would love to win this, and with my reworking of the proposal I think I have a pretty good chance.

I so enjoyed good fellowship this wedkend. Rob's sister Debbie and brother in law Matt were in town to visit. I really enjoyed spending time them.

I must admit that I am a bit worn out from juggling all this fellowship. I am looking forward to some downtime.

Glorious Day

Yesterday was such a beautiful day! Since starting school a year and a half ago I have been taking off work on Thursdays. Initially this was to accommodate afternoon classes. Now even though I don't have classes on Thursday,I have kept the day open for homework and to recover from juggling school and work. I love being home with the dogs!

Tried to keep up with friends...going out and drinking this weekend. Getting too old for this. Recovery time too long.
