It seemed like I ran errands most of the week in the Chicago cold. My wool socks, long underwear, and down coat have gotten a lot of use. Now we are all stocked with good food that I can cook up into scrumptious meals, we have the drugs we need to stay heathly and somewhat sane, and The Cat has food and new toy that will hopefully get her moving (because The Fat Cat needs to lose weight). I also got her a new food. She didn’t seem to be losing weight on the other, and it’s been well over six months. But don’t worry too much about the putty cat, Mommy is on a diet too. My doctor told me I need to lose 10 pounds and 15 would be better. Right now I’m cutting back on the sugars and carbs and making sure I get at least 3 servings of fruit and vegetables. I have also started practicing yoga again. Baby steps…
Oh yes, I also got a much needed haircut and had a massage! Squee! Even better, when I went to see my psychiatrist, I was able to tell him that I am doing good and that I’m very happy. And it’s true. I have been very happy and content, and I’ve decided to enjoy it instead of worrying about when the other shoe is going to drop.
We’re going to have a quiet weekend. I’m going to read and write, and there’s church Sunday, but I don’t think anything after. So I plan on being surrounded by books, journals, afghans, and cups of tea for most of the weekend. All my errands are run, Christmas is put away, and the house is clean (Thank you V Maids! And thank you Fatabulous Hubby for working it into the budget!). A weekend of no guilt loafing. Gotta love it. Plus it’s cold here. Indoor activities are the best during Chicago winters.
Be sure you get around say hi to other Company Girls at Home Sanctuary!
How was your week? Any plans for the weekend?

Sounds like a perfectly wonderful weekend! So glad you had that down time. I’m slightly coveting your haircut…I really need one.
Have a great week!
Thank you Susan. I’m glad you stopped by too. Have a good week.
Hey Shawna! Thanks for stopping by my blog — love yours, esp. your recent one on Judith. So glad to have you as a Company Girl. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Debbie, Joyce, Anna, and Marie. Joyce I hope you got that massage from your hubby!
I’m so lucky: I go to church with a massage therapist, and she has great rates. But she’s started seminary for an M.Div, so I decided I better get in before she starts her semester (not to mention her son is getting married in May). It may be awhile before I have another.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
My daughter lived for 5 yrs in Chicago while she attended Moody Bible Institute….it’s a great city…I’m suppose to have a massage next week which I really need! I’m glad you enjoyed yours and you were able to give a positive report to your therapist!
I hope you have a relaxing weekend!
I got cold reading your first sentence. I heard it’s been snowing everywhere these past few days. It’s about 50 degree over here, and I’m already cold. I just can’t imagine. Indoor activities sound great! Now I’m thinking I need a haircut and massage too. I think the husband can work the massage one in later on, but the haircut will have to wait. =p
Oh how wonderful – a haircut AND massage… I’d be “squee-ing” too! So glad you had some you time!
Thanks Cara, Ashley, and Star! I’m kind of glad for a slow weekend. I still feel like I’m recovering from all the traveling we did. Hope you have great weekends too.
Sounds like an amazing weekend! Don’t feel guilty a bit! I would do the same if we didn’t have basketball games and church, and a dinner….!
Ooooooh your weekend sounds wonderful! And the haircut and massage….NICE! Enjoy the good times … and it sounds like you have some serious good times going on 🙂
Awesome! Sounds like a fabulous weekend! Have a great time!
