Grown-up Play Date

Remember last week when I was saying that I felt trapped and needed a play date?


Okay maybe I was whining.

But that's not the point.

The point is my good friend Krista e-mailed me and said that she too could use a grown-up play date so we made plans and last night we treated ourselves to a pedicure, a little shopping and a scoop of Ben & Jerry's.  It was delightful and just what I needed.

Thanks Krista.

We all need to get out now and again to maintain our sanity and to put things back in balance.  Sometimes we get so overwhelmed with doing for our loved ones that we forget to do for ourselves.  

So give yourself a break and schedule some you time.

There's nothing like a good friend to bring you out of your funk.

And thank you for your thoughtful comment on my blog post today -- it meant a lot to me.

So true! Sometimes we just need a break. Sounds like you had a great 'play-date'. :-)
