1. I am going on a retreat this weekend because I serve on the leadership team for Mom2Mom. We are heading out to the fabulous home of Mrs. Mari-nanna (that's what we call her) on Little Swan Lake. I will be gone less than 24 hours, but will without a doubt have a great time. Mari-nanna is THE BEST cooker ever in all the world! She will make and serve more unbelievably delicious food than we should consume within a week. Will I hold back? Keep calorie count in mind? Make good wise choices? Absolutely NOT! I should just start fasting now so that maybe I don't feel so guilty when I stuff myself like there is no tomorrow. Ahhhh, we only live once, ya know. And I only go on this retreat once a year. So I will enjoy each and every bite while I am there : )
2. Tonight is my book club. We call ourselves the Lit Wits We formed about a year ago. Just a bunch of women, who TRY and read a chosen book, then meet once a month for a "formal" gathering. We have found that we only talk about the book 5% of the time, if even that. The rest of the time we are talking, hanging out & having fun. We have some VERY interesting conversation. This has helped me broaden my horizons with reading material. I really like to read, I'm just bad at taking time to sit down and do it. If I have to choose between exercise/running (or sometimes house work) or to sit and read, I'm likely to pick the first. I'm a on to move type of person. Book club helps me get at least one book read a month. Since I am hosting this month I got to pick out the book. We read Before I go to Sleep. It's an excellent read.
3. My schedule has been very blank lately. I like this. Even with "nothing" to do, I still have PLENTY to do. I try to embrace these days as much as I can. I know that there has been and will be days where I have so much going on my head is spinning. Sometimes it bothers me that I don't have girlfriends calling me up and scheduling time with me. I call them. I try to get things planned from time to time. It wears on me that things can feel one sided. I used to really put myself out there and that got me nothing but a bunch of hurt. So I stopped and became more reserved. Since no one really ever seeks me out I just stay in my little world more than I want to or feel I should.
