What To Do When Brain Dead – Mommy’s Need A Sabbath

tumblr_static_cz68nh2fqtws88c4gkc8sckggThe contents of this post make it very clear just how much I need the Sabbath. We were created with a day of rest in mind. It isn’t that I shouldn’t have done the things I did do today in a legalistic way. It’s that I shouldn’t have been trying to do anything. I should have been seeking and embracing rest. I didn’t really realize that til after I wrote all this and finally had my head on a pillow.
Time to read my exhaustion post again

A much as my brain is and so often is full of work, right now it is empty.  It has been two weeks of teaching and speaking and meetings and interviews and filmings.  The stuff that used to be a welcome break from my normal job, but the last two weeks have taken most of my time.  So instead of trying to shut work out of my brain for the weekend, this weekend my brain is just off.  I can hold her and feed her and even sing to her, but work stole my head this weekend in a different way.  The lights are on, but nobody is home.  Brain is off, so randomness is about to ensue.

I think baking an apple crisp and putting together a high chair is about the max of my capabilities today.


I’m just going to lay here and allow all the season previews to wash over me.  Blue Bloods and NCIS are the returning favorites.  So far Blindspot is the new favorite.  I spread out my law enforcement agency love when it comes to television. I am very loyal to the real producers in real life.

I wish she would go to bed early tonight, but it’s 11:00 pm and so I think it might be too late for that.

The one thing that could have given some real energy to this rainy day would have been a UT win.  But that apparently is just not going to happen.  Why did I have to be born a Volunteer?


So far my fantasy team is kicking butt.  Hopefully, tomorrow will be as good as the last two weeks.


Wow, I’m turning into my Dad.  I don’t have any words to say, so out spills the sports talk.  I won’t worry about it unless it becomes an every conversation type of thing.
