I may have flipped out....BUT

Thursday, December 17, 2009

You ever had one of those days when you "react" to everything instead of just rolling with it? We've all been there and its disturbing to say the least to watch yourself get caught up in the things you CANNOT control.

All day I've felt this weight on me about the move, and life, and everything thats swirling around me. I stepped out for lunch to get some fresh and calmed down a little. I have to focus on all that has been accomplished, not what has to be accomplished.

What I'd really like to do is drag out the Christmas decorations, go get a tree, sit around and enjoy the holidays, but I can't, realistically.....

SO, what I did was schedule myself for an Afternoon Delight at one of the local salons! This is something I NEVER, NEVER, EVER DO!!! I haven't had a manicure since 2002, pedicure since 2001, and a massage - since 2001 as well....its about time. I figured I can take some of the vacation pay that I earned and treat myself to a Christmas present of relaxation :-) for a couple hours.

I'm so excited!! Manicure @ 5:30, massage @ 6:15 and I'll go back for my pedi over the next 2 weeks before I leave (they couldn't fit it all in tonite since I called last minute). aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.....I can feel the relaxation setting in.........aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    It's all natural to give yourself a friendly tap on the shoulder...
You've been working so hard, you SHOULD reward yourself from time to time!!

    Good for you! You have been very busy, even before this move. You deserve it for being a single mother while your ex was away! I'm glad you are taking time to relax! This time off will help revive you so you can attack your lists with more energy!

Enjoy your night!
