My birthday gift to myself: Take the day off!

image Yes, today is my birthday. I know I normally tell everyone at least a month or so in advance and look out for well wishes, but I guess I’m maturing (LOL) – so to speak – it just didn’t seem to be a big deal this year. Not making it a big deal made me realize that I need to make it a big deal at least for myself. So today, on my 42ND BIRTHDAY!!! (OMG), I’m going to relax.

I’ll have to use everything in my power not to blog, tweet or check email or anything, but I think I’m going to go low tech with a cell phone only day. And enjoy a movie, maybe a nap, read a book or do whatever I want that makes me happy. I don’t even have to get up today to take the kids to school because this was their weekend with their father.

And, in case you’re wondering, I didn’t write this post today. It’s Tuesday the 14th and I have my feet propped up on a kitchen chair while I work. I’m behind, overwhelmed, tired and stressed out so thinking about a day off is making me feel pretty darn good.

I’ll be back tomorrow (if I don’t decide to pack my kerchief and be a hobo!). Have a great day and a fabulous week.

Petula for September 20 post
