Time For Me

So I'm off work for the summer, well ok, I need to find a job, but the school year is over and I have some time off.

And boy do I need the break. My health hasn't been what it should be, and I've been running in all directions at once, with all cylinders firing at full throttle, and it's time for a tune-up! A little bit of downtime, me time, do nothing time, is called for I believe, so that I can get back to "normal" (whatever that is! )

So I'm not going to think about all the stuff that needs to be done around the house, errands that are begging to be run, the teenager who needs more structure and how in the world to give it to him, or any of the other things weighing on my mind. At least for awhile, I want to try to let go of the pressures and just relax and enjoy myself, de-stress.

One thing that will help with that is using the gift-certificate my Mom gave me back in April for my birthday. It's for $250.00 worth of services from the Spa on the Avenue at White Marsh.

Something else that might help is spending time with friends that I haven't seen for awhile. Hopefully I'll do that this week.

Off to pamper myself, hmmm, let's see, will I roll over and go back to sleep, or take a nice long bubble bath? Or some other indulgence? What would make me happiest?

    Pedicure..Pedicure...Pedicure! Oh! And a new sexy toy! Ooooo! And beg for a good old fashioned OTK spanking, it always relaxes me.

    Sometimes, a great way to pamper yourself is to take time just for you.. the activity can be as simple as reading a good book, walking in an antique store or watching a show on television. "me" time tells you from you that you ARE special, you ARE unique, you ARE extraordinary and many more things. I have found that the simplest activities mean the most, are the most relaxing and meaningful. Of course, as Kismet suggested, pedicures are awesome, especially when you get to sit in the chair that vibrates and they massage your lower legs.. :)
    Sometimes, I think pampering oneself isn't so much about the activity as it is about taking care of you, taking care of what's inside you, recognizing yourself for the beautiful woman that you are. (my 2 cents worth) :)
