Well since this has become my blog I just thought that I'd talk about the wonders of taking yourself out for a date. I was good to myself today. I had an afternoon and an evening to myself. I took myself to have my eyebrows cleaned up and then to the lingerie store to get myself some new ultra-feminine lacy underthings. Then I worked on some crafting projects and went for a swim. Finally I took myself out to dinner and people watched while I ate. I was wondering how many people aren't what they appear. All in all this is something that I need to do more often. I think that I've become disconnected from myself. I spend a lot of time taking care of everyone else and sometimes I have to take the time to take care of me. It seems like such an obvious thing but sometimes it's so hard to do. I know I have a weekend coming up without kids. At least part of that time will be all about me, no cleaning the house, no worrying about doing things for anyone else. Just time for me to sit with a coffee and watch the world go by (and then maybe go window shopping).
