I was reading this morning and found the perfect description of me. The author described a character as someone who, "did everything as if she were killing snakes." I had such a laugh about that and immediately felt a kinship with the character. Yup, that's me. Intensity personified.
I do throw myself into things; I work fast and hard. In nearly 50 years on this planet, you'd think that I would have learned how to pace myself. You'd be wrong. I have learned how to rest; thank goodness for that. Today I am losing the fight against my cold; I've been fighting getting one for about a week now. Today I am forced to admit that I feel really, really rotten.
The snakes are safe. For now.
