The past few weeks for me have I have been in a funk. You could probably tell by the lack of posts. Who wants to post stuff that sad? Not me. I want to try to keep a positive outlook. So that’s the reason for less than stellar blogs. All bloggers go through this, not much going on in their heads or stuff that just isn’t post worthy. For reasons known only unto me and a few close family members and friends, the tide has turned so to speak and the blue sky is shining through into my life for a moment. This is good news, heck… this is GREAT NEWS!
This past weekend was a long one for us Albertans. It was Family Day Weekend. A holiday created out of the need to give us a much needed break in the throes of the hideous winter. I need that break so stinking bad it wasn’t funny! I have a friend who challenged me to nurture myself. I did it. I spoiled myself rotten. You know something else? I plan to do it more often! I took myself to the AGA. I went to the Tiffany & Co. Counter at Holt Renfrews! I tried on a pair of Louis Vuitton Shoes…. Let’s just say I am developing a taste for fabulous.
I spent some serious time looking at Kate Spade bags. I found a Coach Bag I have to have. The worst of it is, I saw it on the should of a gal I work with. I don’t care if it is the same bag I want. I hardly see her at work. I want it. The good news is, I have a plan.
I started Face Painting again. My booking agent (aka Santa) was very generous and slotted me into two slots right away. This will make a big difference for me. I am able to save and spend money without feeling guilty about family needs. I want to clarify something first. My Honey doesn’t hold the purse strings, it is just, like most families, finances are tight. Especially with me going back to school. By earning my own extra cash, I am able to buy stuff for ME without thinking that ChatterBox has grown another 4 inches or groceries are going up. All that is taken care of in our household account. No, my Face Painting money is my crazy mad money. First of all, I am buying myself a lap top. There are too many people needing the computer for homework. I need my own. Then I am saving for an iPad. Why you ask? I covet them. I love my iphone so why wouldn’t I love an iPad? Quit asking crazy questions! Then I am going into Coach and I am getting myself a fabulous bag. I may buy one before the iPad. I know! Now you understand how much I want one!!! When I was at Tiffany’s I discovered I want a Tiffany key really badly too. There is NO WAY I can Face Paint enough for that. Good thing I have a lotto ticket in my purse.
The next thing I did for me was go to my Hairdresser and tell her I want a new look. She got all excited and Jumping Jellyfish Batman, I have a whole new look! I have straight hair. Gone is the clown hair of yesterday. I am not sure how long the straight locks will stay, but ONE day for sure.
Coming up more self nurturing on the horizon. Next stop, the Library. I know that sounds wild and crazy. I love libraries and book stores. I want to flip through magazines. I miss the days where buying magazines was a regular occurrence. I just can’t justify them anymore. The expense and the green factor just put me off it. The library carries them. Maybe Thursday if I get my homework done, I will reward myself with a little library time.
First things first, I need to register for yoga class. I will do that tomorrow. Life is getting good.
