It’s a rainy Monday morning yet again, but the raindrops are hardly enough to bring down my good mood. In fact, I throw back my head and laugh at them! Mwhahahahaha!!! 😉
After all, I only have five days left until my mini-vacation. **Insert applause here**
Where am I going, you ask?
Nowhere. 🙂 See, the hubby doesn’t get any time off for Memorial Day, and we really can’t afford to go away quite yet. But on the other hand, I need some time off. Life has been crazy hectic, and I just want a couple of restful days. I want to remember what it’s like to live without being a slave to the clock.
So I’m having a spa experience in the comfort of my own home.
I mean, why not? I have Monday off, so that means an extra day to catch up on sleep. I have a cozy patio out back that’s perfect for outdoor dining. There’s bubble bath in the linen closet, and a novel sitting on a shelf in the bedroom. I have a refrigerator stocked with healthy food, a television that’s tuned into the Food Network, magazines just begging to be read, and a neighborhood perfect for taking a run in. There’s even therapeutic gardening to be done. (Although, considering the fact that the hubby and I have never planted a garden before, it may lean more on the side of stressful. But that’s a risk I just need to take). 🙂
Oh, yes, and I also may have stocked up on mani- and pedi- materials…
I am literally bursting with excitement that you’d think I was going to some ritzy resort with a renowned spa. I just can’t remember the last time that I had three days to do whatever I wanted. Three days to catch up on slowing down. To ignore my laptop and anything electronic related. To focus on reading a good novel, taking a leisurely run, or planting some plants in rich soil.
I’m seriously going to treat this like a vacation. And I really can’t wait!
Have you ever had a spa weekend at home? How about a spa day?
