Elora is my older sister. The first-born in our family and thus, the trailblazer.
It makes sense that this would come out in her first book, which is being published soon; because of this she decided to do a series on rest on her blog, and invite others to write about their experiences (or lack thereof) with that four letter word while she focuses on editing and tweaking and polishing. It reminds me of when mothers nest right before the baby arrives.
So, even though nepotism may have been involved, I was honored when she asked me to write. Please check it out and I hope you enjoy! :)
In other news:
It is slighly ironic I would just write about rest, because I slowly feel my, "I just LOVE being around people ALL THE TIME!!!" tank being emptied. This makes sense as the first three weeks of the semester are the most intense for campus ministry.
Now, sitting at my desk on a post-dance hall Friday morning in my mid-twenties body, I realize that maybe... just maybe... my body doesn't respond as well to being awake, much less dancing, past midnight as it did when I was eighteen.
Or, it could be that I sweated roughly a liter of liquid and only put a skimpy 6 oz. of water back into my poor, dehydrated self. (Because honestly, I'm no triathlete, but I'm pretty in shape, so feel like there has to be another reason besides age that is contributing to my sluggishness.)
Either way, re-reading my post for Elora's blog (among all the other amazing posts people have written on the subject) has reminded me to pick up some frozen pizzas, to only do cleaning that will maintain the house at a livable state, & chill the heck out this weekend.
Do you have any plans for this weekend?
