Three things I learned about myself this week:
1. I have a really, really hard time relaxing. On Monday morning I found myself without any big deadlines. I did a bit of reading and a bit of knitting, but after fifteen minutes I was already making lists of things I could do now that I had more time: start blogging in Dutch again (on all three blogs), write some short stories for my website, start writing a book, revisit social media, etc., etc.
Ahem. Wasn't I supposed to rest? (the black circles around my eyes tell me so...)
2. I also have the worst sense of how much time things actually take. That's probably also because I'm a bit (ha!) slower than I used to be. But as the week progressed I found that I don't have that much extra time anyway. This is a big house to clean (and it was a big mess too) and the "little" computer tasks that I knew I had to do took me much longer than I thought they would. I should probably make a list to remind me how long things actually take, but I fear that will also take me much longer than I think.
3. I can actually wear flipflops daily -trying to insert a lighter note- and yes, that's notable for me. I always thought I had an issue with "something between my toes" and only wore them occasionally. But two weeks ago I put them on them for a night out (because they sort of matched my dress) and I just realized I've been wearing them daily and all day long ever since. I even wore them yesterday for a whole afternoon of shopping. That's at least one part of my integration on this island to check off the list ;-)
