When you’re sick

A friend from out of town was in Chicago-land this weekend so a group of us went out for lunch on Saturday and hung out for a bit. It was so much fun!

It was good for me to get out of the house. You see, on Thursday, I developed a sore throat.  I went to a networking event on Friday and hung back a bit. Normally, I’ll stand and mingle until the event officially starts. That day I didn’t. I found a seat and let people come to me – and it worked out great.

Friday afternoon I had a project I wanted to work on, but I was tired.

In the car, before I left the parking lot I wrote down 4 things that I wanted to do when I got home and none of them where that project.

I had 2 confirmation emails that I wanted to send, I wanted to plan the following week (this week) and either read or nap.

Can you guess which one didn’t get done?

In the past, it would have easily been the reading/nap that I gave up on. However, on Friday, I postponed planning. I knew I could do it on Sunday afternoon instead.

So, Friday afternoon, after sending the 2 confirmation emails, I took a 2+ hour nap.

It was fabulous!

And I think I would have felt tired and icky on Saturday if I hadn’t done that.

I’m still not 100%, so I’m cautiously optimistic about this week. AND I know that if my plans get changed due to not feeling as well as I could be, that’s okay too.

In the comments below share how you handle what you want to get done when you’re not feeling 100% or how it trips you up.
