Well I have TECHNICALLY been home for 2, going on 3 workdays. This is a whole new world for me. I have learned that I am most certainly a person of structure and order. Not bogged down, or in bondage to anything, but I just like order. So after a day of doing hardly anything at all I realized...
"ok this isn't going to work."
My whole reasoning for taking maternity leave early was because I need to REST. I was pushing myself too hard physically at work and it was taking it's toll on me and our baby. Also, you all can please be praying for this: I have a "vericose vein" (I hate to call it that, it sounds so bad) that is excruciatingly painful to stand on, and it's in a lovely area, very low, under my belly if you know what I mean:/ So standing on that causes great pressure on that vein and needless to say I can't stand for long periods of time.
However, I can't sit for long periods of time because I'm just thinking the whole time "there are things to be done!"
I have started making to-do lists, even for staying at home.
Even if it's for simple, obvious things that don't need to be written like "pick up the house".
EVEN if it's "brush your teeth"
I will rest well, knowing that what I set out to accomplish, has been done.
