I've been away from regular life for a while--still trying to regain my sanity after taking on far too many obligations and fun things that I had a hard time resisting. So, I've been taking many deep breaths and giving myself many self-talks while slowly checking off my list of to-do's BEFORE the week of Christmas. We have quite a few family members coming to our home that week so I am prepping myself for a busy couple of weeks of cleaning, cooking, entertaining, and enjoying the festivities. I am determined to have a Merry Christmas and ring the New Year re-couped and refreshed.
Speaking of, I'm about to head out the door for a massage! There is nothing like a relaxing massage to help care for the soul, and I am so happy that Husband understands where I am coming from when I tell him I need a break. He even said he'll make dinner. Have I ever told you what a good cook he is? I think I might sneak to the bookstore, too, and indulge myself in a tall cup of joe and pick up my latest book club read, Spilling Clarence.
Have a nice night!
