Have you ever had the feeling that you are behind on life?
- the laundry is piling up
- the kitchen is in disarray
- the bedrooms are desperately needing decluttering and spring overhaul
- winter boots and spring mud fill the entryways
- school is in Just the Basics mode
Well, this is where I have been living these past 2 weeks that I’ve been working on painting and reflooring the kitchen (WHAT was I thinking?) PLUS the exterminator comes on Wednesday. So what did I do with my day yesterday?
I went to the Spa with a girlfriend!
Yep, you read that right – no April Fool’s joke here! I took the entire morning, and part of the afternoon, off and went to the spa with a friend. My darling daughters gave me 2 lovely gift certificates for a spa time. I have a friend who has had a trying winter so I took her with me and we shared a lovely morning of pampering. There are just some days when you say, “Who Cares?”
In the eternal scheme of things, will it matter that these 2 weeks were out of control at home? Nah. But it was a lovely day away for me and today is another day to declutter and clean. We’ll take the day off from school entirely and everyone will be responsible for spring cleaning their bedrooms and we’ll do a White Tornado cleaning in the downstairs (which is pretty pulled together underneath, but untidy on the top). Then the exterminator can come and we’ll be ready for the mud to dry up outside and spring to really begin!
How is your life looking these days? Are you needing a spa day with a friend to get refreshed, or maybe an extended time with Lord for some spiritual pampering?
