This has been a really fun weekend. We have a holiday in the US today -- we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Federal holiday = no mail = no bills = no trash pickup = no school. That last one also = no work getting done.
The most exciting thing I did this weekend, that I'm carrying with me this week, was making time for ME.
We met Saturday morning for brunch. Took us all about 20 minutes to get to a central location. We enjoyed a 2.5 hour brunch without kids and without husbands. It felt indulgent.
That sounds strange. A brunch with girls felt indulgent. I need to indulge more often. I need to be good to myself.
I realized later that afternoon when I went to put on my lipstick that it was empty. And by empty, I mean it was concave and i would need a scraper to get any more out. I've been putting it off for a few weeks.
Why? Because I don't want to spend $30 on myself for some lipstick. That's just wrong. So dammit, I'm taking myself to get lipstick today. And I'm going to wear it. I'm going to be happy when I put it on and make sure when it wears off, I reapply.
My lipstick is going to be indulgent and make me happy.
