14 January 2018
should be allowed
that it may return
to its work
all the better for the rest.
From mid-November til mid-January,
work is very intense in my position
at my BigBoxStore. It has always been
this way, and I've become accustomed to
setting my mind to the intensity, and
tend to live and breathe work,
coming home to grab a bite, fall into bed,
only to do the same the next day.
My one day off tends to be utilized in the
normal ways: chores!
This was finally my weekend to relax.
To let my mind be away from it all.
My only chore today was to give Sadie
a bath, and then warm ourselves in the sun.
It's been a perfectly lovely weekend, and
tomorrow I return to the grind. I know that
I will walk into a mess -- I always do.
But I won't let my mind think about it
for another 12 hours.
My only job today is to relax.
In the last rays of the day
streaming in my window.
