Today at Jamie Ridler’s Studios, the Wishcasting Wednesday prompt is
Wishcasting Wednesday: How Do You Wish to Nourish Your Self?
There are really only two things this week. Simple, necessary things. Without these two things, everything else is terribly difficult to do.
Rest. I am exhausted. I can’t get to sleep, but when I do finally drift off, I sleep like the dead. Dragging out of bed is so very incredibly difficult. I spend my day looking for the next caffeine fix, which keeps me in a state of exhaustion.
Time. To create. To be with my husband. To hang out with friends. To clean my dirty house (there’s enough dog hair hanging around to knit the cats sweaters). To write. Long days at work mean that the things that I need and want to do at home get pushed back later and later into the evening/early morning. Which contributes to the exhaustion.
The hell of it is that I can’t catch up on the weekends. No matter how late I’m up at night, I rarely sleep past 8 or 9 on Saturdays and Sundays. I’d like to sleep later, but then I think about all the things that I need or want to do. The more I sleep, the less I get done. Such a conundrum.
It’s not a lot, I don’t think. But it is so incredibly difficult to find either one of them, and so this week, I’m wishing for rest and time.
What do you wish for this week?
