I took several weeks to just decompress and I can see it was well worth it.  I allowed myself to just NOT least when circumstances allowed me to disengage. 

The first thing I did was to take two weeks off work.  Even though Ron was unable to join me (due to just going back after his 6 week medical leave) I booked time with my daughters.  

We did makeovers one day, lunch another day, pedicures another and I helped them prepare their classrooms for the start of another school year. It was productive and time with my girls is always fun and time well spent.

The makeover was new for me.  Never did that before and I can say it was actually a lot of fun.  I felt silly at first having this twenty something trying to make a purse out of a sows ear but the overall affect was good.   I checked this off my bucket list of things to do.

The pedicure was the best........normally it is too up close and personal for me but dang it my feet hurt!  They felt a lot better after the massage.  This may become a regular thing for me. 

I also got my eyes examined not realizing I hadn't had an exam in over 3 years.  I thought my glasses were messed up and that's why I couldn't wasn't my glasses, it was my eyes.  Picked out new frames and presto......the world is clear again.

Now, I should have scheduled a colonoscopy  while I was off but frankly....I just didn't want to.  I'll save that for another day.  Although I really can't wait too much longer.

So, I'm feeling refreshed and renewed! 

I've been keeping up with some of my fellow bloggers and my prayers have been with Olga during her husband's hospital stay.  I know just how hard it is and only wish him a speedy recovery!

Glad to see you've had some "me" time, been refreshed and are feeling better. Sometimes life is just - well too "lifey" and we all need a break but I'm so glad to have you back.

Hugs from Canada!
