Just thought I'd share my weekend with you! This was the last card show of the season I had booked and it was my option to go or not - she would have saved my space for next year.....so guess what I chose?
Right - I felt I could handle it this time! Didn't learn from the other one Nov. 6, that too much activity has its consequences! The show was from 3pm to 9 and would continue Sat. 9am to 3pm. I knew I was in trouble when one hour into the show I was already feeling bad.
I hung in there til 9pm but did not feel well the whole time. Knowing I had to get up and be at the show again at 8:15 after not sleeping all night, it was then I regretted my bad decision.
I said many prayers along the way - wanting only to be home snuggled in my recovery chair in front of the TV - but here I was at 8:15 still feeling totally uncomfortable! The other 2 girls in the room said I looked like I'd seen a ghost - but I hung in there - had another cup of green tea, primped my card racks and got it all ready for the customers at 9:00, and when they arrived, thank God, I was revived!
The revival however, was only short lived - by l:00pm the sick feeling came back again, so I told my husband we'd better start packing up the cards which takes at least 3/4 of an hour - we did and he drove me home then went back with my grandson to pack up the rest of my display and the cards!
In retrospect I asked myself - why didn't you learn from that first show that as yet, it is just too much activity for your condition ? I'm so glad the shows are behind me for this year and I can just get on with my recovery . I do have some pain but it's not intolerable - it's the drugs again and what they do to you when you overdo!. I will go for an xray this week to see if that contraption they put in there survived all my activity! I guess knowing better isn't quite enough for some of us- you have to make the effort to do better also!
