After finishing another exhausting workday, I started thinking about all the things I have to do between now and Christmas and all the fun and rest I’ll get when the holiday break begins. I made the collage above with Bitmoji images featuring all the things I hope to do: deep clean house; get ahead on some business matters; prepare the house for Christmas; binge-watch television programs and Christmas movies; finish Christmas shopping; practice photography techniques; read a few good books; catch up on snail mail; connect with friends; spend time with my guys; rest and relax; spend time with family; get craftsy; pamper myself; work on writing projects; take time for tree therapy; organize photos; sleep, sleep, and more sleep.
Have you figured out what I figured out while making this little collage? Even though I worked in some rest and relaxation, that’s a whole lot of “busy” in what should be a period of rest. I might need to spend the time simply rethinking my life…and sleeping. Sleep is essential.
