For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself. For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy.

DIY: Leather trays
For quite some time now I have been looking for a storage solution for my husband's keys, wallet etc. As it is now, they get dumped wherever he see's fit to drop them. At first I cleaned out a drawer in my entrance console table but that didn't work as it got filled up with head phones and phone chargers. Then I decided to empty out part of my desk so that he'd have drawers in my home office but then they got filled up with external hard drives and other misc. male paraphernalia. SO, when I saw this leather tray, I thought how great is this!! It's easy to make and can go anywhere without being an eyesore. Now I'm off to get some supplies!
