I woke up feeling out of sorts this morning, which was not how I wanted to spend any of my vacation time, so I tried a little experiment. I started a post where I wrote down everything that was bothering me, and then wrote down the best counter I could for each one. I’m pleased to say it was a great success. Before I got through even half of the list, I was feeling better so you’ll all be spared the whining – for now anyway. And then John got up, so I had someone to play with, which helped too. Part of the problem was just that I was bored, I think. Of course, one of the many reasons I love him is that just hanging out with him doing nothing is fun, so he cheered me up just by being himself.
And then I went to the Aveda spa and got a massage and pedicure. I defy anyone to stay in a bad mood after an hour long massage and then a pedicure. I love it at the spa. Everyone is nice to you, and they bring you water and soft robes and are focused on making you feel good. I felt pampered and relaxed and oh so lovely after. In fact, I still feel good! I definitely need to find a way to work a semi-regular spa visit into the budget. They gave me a coupon for a discount on a hot stone massage, which I’ve always wanted to try. Maybe for my birthday or something. Anyway, while I was there, I ran into my boss, who was getting her manicure fixed or patched or something. We talked a little bit about work stuff, but mostly in a “we’re busy without you” way, so my vacation is still intact.
And now I think I’ll take my relaxed self off to bed. Hopefully tomorrow will be grump free.
