A Much Needed Break

Worthless.

That’s what we’ve been this week.  Absolutely worthless. And I’m okay with that.

Because we all need time to unplug, stay up a little later than usual, have permission to sleep in, maybe even drink some cold beer without counting the calories or prepare meals without thinking of nutritional content. Know that you don’t know what’s going on in the national news and your emails aren’t being checked much less warranting a response. It’s good for the soul.

Books: After several recommendations, I started Love Does by Bob Goff- easy read full of wisdom. Thank you Kristin!

Spring break is better when spent with friends….

Today? Today was another story. The exact opposite of relaxing, yet just as much fulfilling. I spent the day getting things done. Important things like painting my toe nails Cajun Shrimp, having routine blood work, enjoying an early birthday lunch with my Mom, Aunt, and Meme. Going to the grocery store, shopping for a dress, buying a lamp (on sale!) for Raynes’ room, and taking Kenley to get a super cute, short haircut.  And the best part? I was alone. All day. Man, I’ve been wanting (and needing) a day like this for a long time.

Because tomorrow it’s back to a little more of this.

I’m thinking 38 may not be so bad after all.
