Message from a Chubby, Toddler Mermaid: Rest!
I didn't sleep well last night so I suppose I should try my best to follow this advice. The congestion was distracting and made it difficult to sleep. And I try to avoid cold medications because they really aren't very good for you. Plus I don't even think I have any. I think the best thing to do when you're sick or run down is to rest and eat well.
Part of why I didn't want to rest right now is just what the card says--I've been working to get some bath and body products together, packaged and re-packaged for upcoming events and various booths/venues. But my body says, 'heck no. I am tired.' So I am just doing the minimum at the moment.
I think I will finish what I am in the middle of doing and then try to lay down for a while or at least not do anything too involved or strenuous. I just made some candy cane swirl soaps (red and white, with vanilla and peppermint), and some snickerdoodle soaps (butter, vanilla and cinnamon), and I have festive packaging for them, but I will leave the rest of the labeling for later. I was glad that I made all of my solid lotion bars yesterday and also labeled them, so that it will make preparation much easier later on.
Sending you all restful wishes,
