There are three things that always make me smile….always.
1. The sound of my kids laughing together
2. Big, white, puffy clouds
3. Any movie with Doris Day in it
What is it about Doris Day that just makes you happy? And her clothes….oh man I don’t even care that they are all 60s and outdated….I would wear any of those things in a heartbeat.
Our weekend was beautifully simple. One of my daughters & I went to the city on Saturday to return her friend to the airport and see a movie. We previewed “Dolphin Tale 2″, which I really liked. For sure we will rent it when it comes out. I doubt we will see it in the theater though….taking 11 people to the movie is too expensive. It would come down to a choice between Dolphin Tale 2 or paying last month’s electric bill.
But I should go ahead and add dolphins to my above list because I always smile when I see dolphins. They are just so happy!
Since James had a big tax deadline on Monday he was kind of “gone” all weekend, so I took advantage of the time to myself on Saturday night by taking a simple course about Facebook marketing. I think it will come as no surprise that I ended up with a great big old headache by the end of the evening. Insights and statistics are not something I catch onto easily. I went to bed, but the headache rolled over into Sunday morning and by the time church was over I was ready to dunk my brain in a tub of ice water.
A friend at church asked me if I was feeling OK and I told her I had a headache. “Oh,” she said, “”Do you think it’s allergies?” “No,” I replied, “It’s Facebook.”
I came home and instead of the ice water trick I rubbed myself down with essential oils. There’s a great headache remedy that I really like and wish I had thought of it the night before.
I used the oils and laid down on my bed and watched a movie with my good friend Doris in it. Headache-gone.
Today I am all better and I hit the ground running, Literally. I went for my morning run at 6:30AM. The problem is that it’s dark now at that time and I am going to have to rethink my mornings. The possibility of getting hit by a car is not worth staying in shape. So I am looking for some new exercise DVDs. I love my TTapp, but I’d like to try something new so I can alternate.
This is my last week of peacefulness before the storm of travel hits. For the next 5 weeks I will be either traveling or having guests or my kids have activities. Our family calendar looks like a scrap quilt of appointments and plans. So my plan of attack is to sleep this entire week and hope for the best.
Have a good one!
