on doing too much

I had big plans for this past weekend. Sketching, swatching, knitting an entire vest, writing up a pattern or two, driving to a family gathering, TWO photo shoots…

I always have big plans, and I always know in advance I’m not going to get to it all. But do you see what I’ve done up there? Everything (well, maybe excluding the family gathering) is eye intensive. And my poor eye muscles were already over worked by Friday afternoon. I was supposed to be taking the weekend off. But I didn’t, I powered through as much as I could, giving myself another set of headaches, and only just stopping before the migraines kicked in (because I’m stubborn, not stupid – migraines HURT)

So I woke up this morning and already had an eye strain headache. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn I’d been staring at things in my dreams… But what to do when my day job (science) and my hobby/job (designing) both use my eyes? Well, I’m taking the day off. Today I’ll get away from anything that might over work my eyes. I’m typing this in my snow pants. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some cross country skiing to take care of!
