go go go!!! STOP!

There are times when we really need to listen to our bodies. I'm experiencing one of those times right now.

You see, in the last week and a half or so, I have been working out, going on playdates, driving to the farm for our CSA, preserving food, sewing, opened my shop, sold 8 items, changed many get the idea. And all this while getting an average of 6 hours of sleep a night. Which is fine....but I guess not fine for me right now.

I'm nursing a baby (who is just 2 months old today!) and battling thrush to boot. And to make matters worse, I've now come down with mastitis for which my midwife has ordered me to 24 hour bedrest. So I sit. And I lay. And I think about all the other things I should be doing. No wait...scratch that. Could be doing. Because I'm doing exactly what I should be doing.

Laying in bed...resting...and nursing my baby!


  1. oh my. Thrush. Mastitis. Brings back such painful memories.
    Good luck!!! Rest is good!!
