Rest and Relaxation

This weekend was all about fun, friends and relaxation. I have felt better than I have in a long time and yesterday and today I took full advantage of that feeling. No longer do I sit at home on the weekend thinking about the fun I can have, but actually doing the things that I want to do.

Yesterday the wonderful volunteer group that I am in held a massage social day. We met for brunch at 10am and ate and laughed and ate some more before heading out to our massages. These ladies are wonderful, compassionate and fun. I couldn't have asked to be a part of a better group of fun women. Yes we are "women" since most of them are a little older than I am. Okay they are all older than I am, but age doesn't matter. I am beyond my days of day drinking and doing stupid things. Intelligent conversations, upcoming babies (yay Sarah I can't wait to meet your little one) and laughing really loud at sexual topics in a restaurant are just part of the fun that we have. We also volunteer. We do things for others, but yesterday was about us.

After eating we met up at a massage place in town where we each had our own little relaxing time while others chatted and snacked. Catching up on life, and just spending time together. There is never a dull moment with this group and even if we don't see each other for a while, we just pick right back up at where we left off. Some have kids, some don't, we all have husbands but they usually stay at home watching said kids while the girls can have fun. We also do activities that involve kids so its all good.

After the relaxation of massages was had, we decided to go shopping on the town. Our little town has shoppes that are only open one weekend a month. I had never been shopping in the town and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of cute things I could find. There were many large items that I wanted: A huge PINK sign that said "Bakery" would have looked cute somewhere in my house. Old desks, kitchen desks/storage things, coffee tables with chalkboards built in, trinkets, fun frames, pretty things. And nothing was super expensive like I was expecting. I did come home with some fun items that remind me of the 80's-leggings and leg warmers are awesome! I can't wait to wear them out in public :)

A great day was had by all and then when we realized that it was 5 pm and our husbands or other halves might be looking for us we should probably call it a day.

I came home and put on comfy clothes and started reading my Jodi Picoult book. I couldn't put it down and I finished it yesterday. It was good, really good.

Then Dru came home to snuggle with me and the baby kitties. Good day!

Tomorrow is the start of the work week. The snow is falling and looks pretty from an indoor perspective, but I would much rather it be 75 degrees and summertime. But O well I will deal with the snow for a little while longer.

I feel more ready for this week now that I finished up a presentation while watching the Social Network this afternoon. Working from home has its perks. I can spreadsheet in my comfy sweats and watch a movie on a Sunday to make next week less crazy.

Happy Sunday night-spend it with the ones that you love.

Oh I almost forgot that I was domestic today. I got the kitchenaid mixer down and baked cookies. Yummy ones according to Dru's coworkers :) I don't bake much but I am going to start. When I asked which child wanted to like the beaters, Molly was first....Stan second and then the big child got his turn. We need human babies and I can't wait until that day. Sharing my beaters while teaching my daughter or son how to bake cookies will make this mommas heart melt. I will get them matching aprons like mine and it will be so fun!


  1. I am so glad to hear you have been feeling so much better lady! That seriously warms my heart!

  2. Baking cookies for your man is one of my favorite past times. I also got a story from my guy's coworkers about my tasty cookies. I does make one want to plan for the day you'll be doing it for kids. I pray that day happens for you sooner rather than later.
