It’s been just one of those weeks. I hit quite a few road bumps along the way over the past 2-3 weeks and I’m now in the process of lulling myself into believing that things will be smooth sailing for at least the next several weeks. A girl can have her dellusions, can’t she? With the stress of everything that’s gone on (and I haven’t really explained the stress but let’s just say this: 1 16 year old boy getting into teenaged mischief, 1 father giving us a health scare, 1 mother still battling her health issues and facing another surgery in the coming weeks, 1 case of the flu and just overall being buried at work) . . anyways, with everything that’s gone on, I’m looking for a little self-pampering this coming weekend.
I’ve already done the hair thing. The pedicure. The manicure. The clothes shopping.
I can’t overeat, unless I really want to undo the 4 sizes I’ve lost since December – so that leaves out movie night with a tub of Hagen Daaz.
So, I’m thinking books. I love to curl up with a good book and all the new books I received for Christmas are already read.
So. This weekend I have the house to myself. Chris is on a biz trip in Atlanta until mid next week, the kids are at their Dad’s for the weekend – – leaving just me and the cats.
I’m envisioning chinese takeout, a few Blockbuster nights, a mud facial, a long hot bath and some good reads.
Got a decent recommendation? I’m flexible and my tastes vary. What have you read lately – was it any good?
