I'm having a 'me' day.

  1. I've decided to have a ME day today. It is all about ME for the next 24 hours.
    No worrying re work today or what dribbly, whiny, demented patients I will have to care for tomorrow. No housework (apart from dishes and cooking). I will do my pilates and yoga today. I will give myself a facial, and try out those new face and body creams I bought yesterday on special. No running round in the car to get groceries or whatever. I will surf the net, work on my new book, I will soak my poor, calloused feet in some soothing bubble bath oil, I will give my hair a treatment. I will write an entry in my diary.
    I will also have my favourite drink later, Southern Comfort (best drink to come out of the US!), and not feel guilty about the calories.
    Yes, I need a ME day today.
    What do you do on your ME days?

    Save the guilt for moral matters - no one on their deathbed, ever, has thought Gee I'm glad I saved those excess calories....

    Have a great day, we all need and deserve one

    Lovely 'me' days...
    My ideal one:
    - sleep in
    - have coffee and breakfast in bed while on the net
    - lie back down again and have a nap
    - don't worry about the housework ... load the dishwasher and do a load of laundry
    - get up about 1400 and have a pampering afternoon
    - go out for dinner

    On 'me' days...
    -Hang out in the ravine
    -Looking at fish in the fish tank
    -Listen to music
    -Provoke those small dogs that I encounter on the sidewalk. They are overly bold.
    -Eat in bed
    -Go hiking

    -I turn off the phone
    -have a glass of wine no matter what time of day with a hot bath and bubbles

    -put on a chick flick and sit with my three doggies on the couch
    -repeat the glass of wine

    I am having a me day for today.

    1. I made french toast(6 points).. with sausage. (3 points) and coffee(0). So I had a big breakfast. I deserve it. I lost 1.4lbs this week. (1.4 pounds for me is like 5 pounds for a normal person.)

    2. In a bit I'm going to get my nails done. I desperately need a fill in. I usually go every week and a half but it snowed wednesday and thursday. So I have to go today.

    3. I'm going to make a yummy lunch and play the Sims 2 for the rest of the day.

    4. Desperate housewives is on at 9pm. I'll watch that with a glass of wine(big glass ), and I bought the new special K potato crisps which are delicious!

    I like to call my "me" days as Blessing Days.

    I like to get up early while the house is quiet and enjoy having my daily devotions and Bible time.
    Other than that I like to go to the gym, take a walk outside, play with my dogs, talk to my family on the phone, surf the net or play internet games, read or watch movies.
    As a general rule, we dont get near enough Blessing Days and I try to enjoy mine with everything I have.
