    Hi All,

    I am generally not one who engages in self-care... but this weekend I am trying it so that I can wean from having crisis come and check on me...

    I bought some Little Debbie Swiss Rolls... to heck with healthy eating this weekend! I have 7 mystery novels to read, movies I have taped to watch, and a store is going out of business and I used their store credit card and bought myself 2 outfit ensambles, a pair of shoes and a pair of slippers... And I am not even going to care when the bill comes in... They will get what I can pay, when I can pay. So There!!!!!!! (Sticking my tongue out)

    Tomorrow I was invited to a women's brunch and a women's poetry reading. I said okay I would go... but we shall see...

    How about you all? What will you be doing for self care this weekend?

    Bonnie, this is a GREAT idea and I'm sorry others missed it. I hope you'll keep at this idea and maybe restart it for the coming weekend.

    How did your weekend of fun self-care go?

    Thank you Caprice.

    The weekend went well. I did not go out but had a great time watching silly horror flicks, eating my Little Debbies, and reading.

    I'll try to restart this...
