My “vacation” was short-lived (thankfully), and I was back to work on Thursday. It felt so good to be back on our regular schedule, get dressed up for work, and spend some time with patients.
I was excited to get back to a full work week this week, I had running and yoga plans for Sunday, ready to take advantage of the nicer weather (finally) coming our way, then…
“Mommy? I threw up in my bed”.
There has been a norovirus outbreak at the school this past week and we thought we missed it. Until Saturday night.
Suddenly, everything changed. Yoga early Sunday morning? Too tired from being up at 3:00am cleaning puke. Run Sunday afternoon? Too much cleaning, laundry, and errands to get through. And work? Missing yet another day.
We watched the new Cosmos show last night, which helped me to realize just how small we really are and even though some situations may seem big and problematic, in the grand scheme of things they really aren’t that big of a deal. So even though things have not gone according to “plan”, that’s okay. I was able to run outside this morning, which was great. I will also be able to do a yoga podcast this afternoon while the little one is resting.
So this week I will be focusing on letting go of “plans”, and instead be more present in the current moment. In life. Because that’s really all we have, right?
