Rainbow Painted

take some time for yourself and learn to yield

In an effort to counterbalance some of the stress I'm under, I've been focusing on doing things I enjoy. This could mean having a candy bar for lunch, or watching a movie on my day off, or allowing myself to buy yet another tube of mascara. Whatever. Happy treats, at all times.

And so, in August, I'm going to attempt to include some of those things in my posts. What should I call this? Self pampering? Taking care of me? Things I like? WHAT.

Yesterday I had to work an outdoor program and nearly died (I wish this was a joke -- I true facts had sun poisoning), but awesome co-worker saved the day. PHEW. Anyway, when I left, I got an iced coffee from Starbucks and saved it to drink this morning. Delish.

Then, after taking the best shower ever, I laid in bed reading the new US magazine and letting the AC blow on my wet hair. Pure bliss.

Today I am going to see Addison (who is still at my mom's -- Drew is with another grandmother for a few days), and we're going to the Smurfs movie. While I could pass on the movie, I know there will be AC, popcorn, and Addison snuggles -- which is pretty much a perfect day trifecta.

See you on the other side!

Quote of the Day

"I believe that no matter how many mistakes we've made; how badly we've really, really screwed up; how old, worn out, or dejected we've become; as long as there is true, steadfast ambition, all of us have an opportunity for greatness."
-- Dave Pelzer
