I have been really bad about it too! The other day I finally got that pedicure I've been wanting. I also got a manicure and some new makeup! For me to buy new makeup is huge because I haven't bought any in a long time. There was a day long long ago that I wouldn't be seen without makeup on. I'm hoping to get back to that one day.

Way to go on the new dishwasher....

I have been so bad about posting here...for most days I have been making time to read. I love to read and I have a great book. It is called "Worth Fighting For" (Love, Loss, and Moving Forward) by Lisa Niemi Swayze. It is written by Patrick Swayze's wife about their journey through his illness. I loved him and I am loving this book.

Since I have started to feel better I did something insane today! Well for me it was, I bought a dishwasher!!!!!!!!! Mine went out months ago and I refused to replace it. I thought it wasn't a necessary thing to have so I never replaced it. Well after being sick for 5 days I found out some good news, and some bad news. The good news is I have enough dishes to suffice the family for 5 days in case of emergency. The bad news is that someone is going to have to wash those dishes BY HAND! So in 2 days my new dishwasher will be here! So excited this will shave a LOT of time out of my day.

Today, while watching the superbowl game, I did my own gel nails. I love having long nails and having them painted. They make me feel good about myself.

Lots of hurdles in my life right now. I'm getting through them slowly. I'm gonna make it!!!

Well just like always a wrench got thrown into my plans! This time it is the flu, so my 'ME' time will be spent on the couch...and I'm still not washing dishes unless I have to!

This week my me time is going to be exercising - I'm aiming for 5 days a week! I'm due for a pedicure again so maybe I can give myself one this week...

I think this is a great idea!

I will do this at least 3 times a week if not more!

Today I got to read some of the book I started yesterday!

Instead of buying, I made 2 cookie cakes today for 5 birthdays. A friend, Loretta Feb. 1, my preacher friend that just found out he has bone cancer turned 98 today, his son David Feb.3, another friend, Paula Feb. 6, and me Feb. 9. I enjoy doing special things for my friends!

My goal is to do this at least 3 x a week.

Yesterday....I colored my hair. I was trying to lighten it up a bit, but it ended up the same color...baaaa. I did achieve my goal of covering the gray that is popping up....so it makes me feel better about myself. Whohoo!

Let's continue with this challenge....but as a change up...let's commit to a certain number of days a week that we WILL commit to finding ourselves. Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming to say we will do it everyday. So, let's commit to a certain number of days a week and really push ourselves to reach that goal. We need to take care of ourselves so that we can take care of our loved ones too.

If you weren't involved with this goal last month...LISADHARPER1 came up with the idea to take care of herself and make it a challenge. Some of the Mom's came up with great ideas to pamper themselves, doing their nails, putting on clothes that made them feel good, reading a book, etc. We feel this is something very important- we need to take care of ourselves, so we can be the best we can be for ourselves and the people in our lives.

Please take a moment and post what your goal is for each week and come back when you complete that day and let us know what you did to "find yourself". Have fun with this one!
