Not as I’d Planned

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 6

I’d planned to accomplish so much this long holiday weekend. I was going to head out to the State Fair to shoot some fun carnival-esque Polaroids. I planned to {finally} spend some time going through and editing my digital photos from France. And, I was going to draft a submission to a magazine in which I’d really like my photographs and words to be published. But the weekend did not unfold as I had planned.

Instead, I felt out of sorts, with a swollen eye that was (and is) causing me quite a bit of pain and discomfort. I spent some time at Urgent Care and then some time in bed. I didn’t go to the State Fair, didn’t edit photos from France, and didn’t write a draft for the magazine. Not the weekend as I’d planned, but the weekend as it was. And that will have to be okay.

  3. I hope you’re feeling better soon. I believe our body tells us when we need to take it easy in the form of illness so maybe you really needed this weekend of down time. I have to admit, I’d be upset about missing the State Fair, too. Aren’t they such a fantastic place to take nostalgic looking photos?? And with a polaroid they are to die for!! xo

      Thanks so much, Wendy! The swelling is going down and I think I’m on the mend. And yes, missing the State Fair was a disappointment but it will come back around. xo
