To my future self

What did I do today that my future self with thank me for?
1. I exercised first thing this morning
2. I bought a bottle of my favorite smelly lotion and a yummy new candle
Are you wondering why my future self would be happy with these choices?
1. Today kid #1 had play practice and kid #2 had ice skating practice in the morning. I got up early enough to exercise and still have time to feed them well, dress them cute, and cart them off to said commitments. I wanted to roll around in bed until the last minute and then dash out the door. I didn't, and am so glad because our morning went smooth and I have felt good about myself all day.
2. While kids were at practice, I took some time to myself and wandered around a shopping center. Because I was up earlier, I was able to leave the house clean and didn't feel the need to go home and tidy up until pick-up time. I usually treat myself with food for job well done, and I would lying if I said Starbucks didn't smell delicious. However, I treated myself with something I always say is "too expensive" . In reality, the lotion was $3. Less than a Starbucks. And I get t0 enjoy it morning and have my hubby hug me close and say, "Mmmmmm...you smell nice". Much better than coffee that leaves me with bad breath and extra calories after 15 minutes of fun.
Future self...you are welcome.
