Tomorrow I'm going for a weekend away with my BFF, who I only get to see a few times a year now that we live far apart (she's in NorCal, I'm in SoCal). We're driving to meet in the middle (central coast -- so pretty!) and are going to hike and talktalktalk -- I can't wait!!

OH! I don't think I've ever seen a butterfly cookie! Sounds fun!

I am going to get off here and read a book in a minute.

This thread is good for me. Many thanks to the OP!

Today, I went bowling. By myself. (Well, with the baby.) Bowled 3 games and was all sweaty and now my butt muscles hurt. What a great day!

Yes, yes.  I'm fabulous. loveeyes.gif  Moving on...

I went to the park this morning and met with a group of mommies.

It was awesome and I think I will go every week from now on. It is called Sanity Group. The mothers were all amazing and their children were a bunch of fun!

I lounged in bed all day---read the New York Times and did Sudoku. And just baked a yellow cake with chocolate icing.

I went into the forest and had some much needed prayer/meditation time.
Then I took myself to dinner and got a frozen yogurt treat afterwards. I don't get time like this often. It was lovely!

Great thread!

I spent over an hour venting to my mom today about how much I want to quit my job - does venting count as something I do for me? It apparently helped, anyway, because I do feel much better now!

I had my monthly dice game with 11 girlfriends and sat around chatting and sipping -- it was fun!

I didn't feel guilty for not taking my kids to the pool or park. We had ballet, then stayed in all day. It summer, but it is too hot and buggy to go outside.
I also took a shower in my freshly cleaned bathroom. Yay!
