Wow, it's the 10th of July and I haven't posted yet this month. That's not like me, is it?
Our computer died recently, and until we can get a new one I don't have access to a bunch of stuff, including photos I was about to blog. So that's my main excuse.
My other excuse is that I have just been so tired lately. This has worried me. I wonder about thyroid issues or anemia or other deficiencies. As I was talking about it with the Badger recently though, I put it all together and said "over the last two years I have been through a grueling twin pregnancy followed by 18 months of moderate to severe sleep deprivation every single night and I wonder why I am tired????? Why I don't feel rejuvenated and recovered and strong? Hmmm, I wonder why!!!" I am probably just an exhausted mother of eight children.
In some ways my health is good and getting better. My weight is just about where I want it to stay. I am exercising regularly and slowly building both muscle and cardiovascular endurance.
But I am tired and I feel depleted.
I am grateful for summer break. I have a huge list of projects to tackle: ten boxes in the basement that never have been gone through since we moved. A pile of mending and sewing projects small and large. Blog posts. Yard work.
However, I also need to just rest. And it's okay.
