I Finally Hit A Wall

And boy did I hit it hard.
Other than a few irrational moments, I've been trucking along trying to take this whole move in stride. I actually thought I had avoided the big melt down, but in doing so, it must have taken a toll on my body. How do I know this? I have been left physically immobile today. Yes, I'm sore from going to the gym after a week off, but I have NEVER been so sore and physically drained for no apparent reason. I don't seem to be sick <yet>, so Will grounded me to the couch for a much needed respite today. The in-laws are gone, the house is quiet, and Netflix is the height of my entertainment.

I must say, this move was easier than the last. We worked like a well oiled machine no matter what was thrown at us, and you know I'll follow Will to the ends of the Earth, it's just that sometimes we all forget that we are mere mortals and have to allow ourselves a 'moment' and time to process in stressful situations such as these. Perhaps if I had given myself a break instead of trying to remain cool, calm, and collected, it wouldn't have hit me all at once causing this debilitating condition. Oy vey, I swear I'm not looking for pity, just admitting that I don't have it all together, and I'm ooooookay with that.

Anywho, the following was the highlight of my day because everyone loves a visual in blogging, and I'm not about to post a picture of myself laid up with my legs wrapped in a heating blanket, {but for reference, it definitely helped the muscles}.




This transition is going to be well worth these little hiccups, and luckily I have the most amazing and supportive husband by my side. Good news, is that the in-laws left just in time for Valentines' Day, 'cuz as we all know, it's not exactly a family holiday. Aw sookie sookie. Happy Valentine's Day and mental health to all! I plan to be tip top shape by then ;)

Moving is such a stressful life event, I can't imagine how tough it would be moving across country in the middle of a freak winter storm. I'm glad you have a rest day!

I hit the wall too!! I tried to avoid a meltdown, but it didn't happen. I can't wait to get settled and life to get back to normal..

Rachel said...

Moving is a hugely draining process!! And slightly unfortunately, my parents arrived at our house with a moving van on the evening of Valentine's Day--and we've spent most of this weekend packing. I hope you're feeling better, girl!

Good to know you're feeling back up to par. I've got a tickle in my throat this morning and I'm trying to nip it in the bud.
