Being Bored

Whenever you have a plan in your head of how things should go or how you would like them to go, there is always a 99.9% chance that everything will be completely different.
Before I got here, I had the idea that I would have massages and have wellness mornings, where afterwards,  I would be completely relaxed, pick up my 'happy and excited' kid because of the day she had.
And then reality kicked in and I woke up from my dream.
Going to kur (cure leave) is not relaxing with kids; it's nonstop work and to be honest, I don't feel much different than I do when I'm home, except here I see a bunch of other mothers who look just as tired as I do.
Mia got sick here and I couldn't go anywhere with her. She isn't allowed in the water because of her ear so the ocean and pool are off limits; there have been storms here for the last couple of days so there are jellyfish everywhere and Enya is afraid to get in the water.
At home, I always find something to do and I always have the feeling that I'm not doing enough or should be doing something else.
This week I was actually bored a few times and it drove me nuts.
This coming week I added several things to my therapy plan like, oil baths, milk baths and, yesterday I started riding the stationary bike to at least have something to do and because I need to move my body more. I had been hoping to do yoga here but it's not offered and the extra classes are all in the evening like TaeBo -- I can't take Mia.
This next week things will be different; I will try to be okay with being bored.
We did take some fun pictures at the beach one day.
