A Great Escape

Tonight I did something that I have not done in a realllllllly long time!
I took some time for myself! Yah Me :)
There is nothing like a scalding hot bubble bath,
lit by candlelight,
with some slow and calming music playing.
I actually found myself swaying my feet back and forth in the water singing aloud about
"making the world a brighter place with my own two hands"
(I know that probably isn't a visual you really want in your minds but I thought I would share anyway)
And then, I did a little bit of deep breathing which led to....
JAZZERSIZE!!!
you know that old record we used to listen to as kids
"look left and right, left and right, up and down, up and down,"
"you got it baby"
No I wasn't standing up in the tub! I was just doing the neck excersizes you dorks :)
Anyway, it felt really good to escape from my world and just relax for a little bit!

I'll call you in the morning gramps. I did get your message and I love you for it. I saved it just so I could listen to it again and again. I love you sooo very much my sweet caring gramps.

Cory, so glad you took a little time for yourself. You deserve it! Thanks for the memory of Jazzersize, it brought a smile to my face after a very long night! :)

Hi Cory,
So glad to hear you taking time for yourself...it is so important. Try to do it more often!

Yes what a visual! Next time let me know and I will come listen by the door! I'm glad you got some time for yourself! Mandy is right, you should make a date with yourself each week! I hope there weren't any of Broders crusty boogeys floating in the tub!

a hot bubble bath seems to be the cure all. i am reading a book right now, written by an irish author, who says that the cure all is a hot cuppa tea. i tried both once and came to an all new perspective! taking time for yourself is extremely important ... for yourself and for your family. good job for making time to nourish yourself! and i am SOOOOOOOO glad that you are back!

Good job Cory...it's about time! :) I'll give you a little relaxation hint ~ next time try a bubble bath without the jazzercise! :)I remember that record so vividly. I would come home from school everday and put that record on and I would do each side twice!Talk about a dork! :)
I think you should take Mandy's advice...this should be a weekly ritual!

Sounds great Cory. I like Cassie's suggestion too about a nice relaxing cup of tea to accompany the 'bathtub time". You deserve some much needed time to relax and enjoy a little "private" time. Actually it is important for all of us. You do need to set aside some time for "just you" each week. I hope you can work it in to your week.... starting now :-)
Love You
Pam
