Dear Self....

Dear Self,

Every day, we work our tushies off (figuratively speaking, of course...which is unfortunate) for the people around us.  We make sure everyone gets breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.  We wash the clothes, we clean the bathroom and keep everything pretty and dust-free.  I've lost track of how many times we've done the dishes this week or how many times we've put the pillows back on the couch and lovingly fluffed them up.  And we always get dressed and dolled up right before Jeff walks in the door, so he has a pretty wife to look at (little does he know we spend the day doing chores and cleaning spit up - among other accidents - so we don't bother getting ready until then).  We do a million things a day for the people we love, because well, we do love them.  But it's time we did something just for us.

Starting today, lets get ready first thing in the morning.  This means shower AND hair AND make-up, so we don't spend the day feeling ugly and worn down.  Jeff can take care of whatever might be going on that we would otherwise take care of for 30 minutes while we get ready.  And second, lets start taking at least one 15-minute walk every day.  I don't know how, but I know it will make life even more blissful.
Other than that, I have no complaints.  Life is pretty good.  Looking forward to that walk later today and a shower before anything else in the morning.
